What's your top 5?
Discipline, Maximizer, Relator, Responsibility, and Consistency
How do you see them playing out in your life?
It is amazing once I identified my Top 5 Strengths how I can see them working throughout my life. I have always been disciplined and like things in order, which I think is my discipline and consistency. I have several very close friends that I love being a part of their lives. For my job I participate in conferences where I work a booth and talk to people all day. Now I know why at the end of the day I am exhausted. It takes a lot of energy for me to just chit chat with a lot of people, that is my relator in play.
What's your favorite theme?
I think my favorite theme is relator. I really love spending time with my girlfriends and my family, investing in their lives and feeling that connection. It really feeds my soul. But through discovering my strengths I have found out that I am no longer willing to keep investing time, emotional energy into the lives of those that do not do the same with me. It has to be recipricol. I have a very busy life and time is very precious to me.
What's the one theme that get's in your way?
The one strength that is constantly in overdrive is my Responsibility theme. I tend to take too many things that are not my responsibility. I'm constantly trying to take care of everyone and fix everything. At the end of the day it leaves me exhausted. I am really working on keeping this in balance.
How has knowing your top 5 empowered you to live a more authentic life?
I feel much more confident in myself and what I can achieve. I am more in tune to my behaviors, what is working in overdrive, and what I need to change. My goal is to live a more balanced life and enjoy myself more in everything I do.
