My main strength is putting effort and thought into doing the right thing for my health, my future, my family, the environment. I endeavour to be kind and fair to everyone and to follow the golden rule of doing to others as I would have others do unto me. I try to contribute and try to give more than I take. I try to not be complacent or lazy.

This is a great lesson because I often focused (past tense) on my weaknesses.

I believe and know that I am control now. I make the choices. I am worthy of praise, attention, time for myself - whether I'm at a normal weight or overweight! I've been focusing on myself 'overall' whereas I used to just pick myself apart. I didn't talk about it, but I've got to believe it showed.

100 More DWL- Day 36 My Strengths

1) MY STRENGTHS , EVEN IF I DON'T ALWAYS BELIEVE THEM OR DO THEM. (Copied lots of these ideas from last time and am trying to believe them)

Actually my daughter says its Tolerance with her dad at times! emoticon

2. Then using the categories of physical attributes, skills and abilities, and personality traits, create a list of your strengths. I didn't find this easy but guess no one does really

Physical attributes: Smiles easily and often engaging smile
A very Healthy, good weight now, a curvy and strong body, attractive, pretty, appealing, sexy, active, energetic.

Skills and abilities: Can still walk at quite a fast pace. Intelligent, knowledgeable, quick learner, competent, organised, good worker, quick thinker, confident,

3. When you finish your list read it out loud. Write a note about how this feels.

Reading the list ALWAYS surprises me as I just take these qualities for granted, they are just 'me' but reading it now boosts my confidence and strength!

I do have some strengths -- my physical attributes are that I'm at a good weight now, and I'm strong and fit. I don't let my physical limitations (bone density, reduced ability to withstand high impact) keep me from staying active.

Skills and abilities: Creative, good with logic (even if it takes me awhile to "get there"), seeing patterns, reading situations and motivations, making others feel at ease and valued.

Personality: My manner is droll sometimes -- I do enjoy humor and using it in a kind way. I like to feel like one of the boys in most settings...never really enjoyed the flirting game even when I was younger, but feel somewhat safer with it now that I'm over the hill...lol. I don't enjoy being the center of attention, and feel more confident with smaller group interactions. I try to be fair in assessments of people--trying to figure out where they're coming from with their life experience. I refuse to take the bait to be drawn into political or other charged discussions -- shy away from controversy. (guess this could be both a strength and weakness) I also don't like to toot my own horn -- don't always feel like I have to show off what I know unless it's asked for or seems natural to share it. I try to learn from my mistakes to be a better person.

• In the space below, write “My strengths, even if I don’t always believe them or do them.”

- plan and coordinate travelling and vacationing in foreign countries

• When you finish your list read it out loud. Write a note about how this feels.

After reading them out loud, I feel that while I have listed some attributes in which I feel I am above average, I am not the best, and I feel it is a bit of a stretch on my part to list them without qualifying that while they are a strength, there are lots of people better than me. I also think that if I write my strengths, I should also write my weaknesses so as not to be bragging or misrepresenting who I am.
It is hard to write about oneself as I have been brought up with Proverbs 27:2 - "Let another praise you, and not your own mouth— a stranger, and not your own lips."
But we should be able to know ourselves and evaluate our strengths, just not brag about it.
My kids were taught in school from elementary years to evaluate and be familiar with their own performances and strengths. (My generation wasn't)

DAY #36 MY STRENGTHS - ROUND 2

I think this is really a difficult assignment because how we see ourselves can be quite different from how others see us.

I do know that it is hard to give ourselves credit also. Just like the example given in the link that Gill shared about the woman who repeatedly blew off the compliment her friend was trying to give her.

I have pulled up what I wrote last time:

Physical Attributes:
Healthy
Strong Body
Tall
Long Legs
Shapely Ankles
Curvy Figure
Well Balanced Body Shape
Straight Teeth
Nice Laugh
Slender Shoulders

Skills & Abilities:
Logical
Quick Thinker
Good Problem Solver
Knowledgeable
Well Educated
Detail Oriented
Organized
Good Cook
Planner
Observant
Green Thumb
Good Fashion Sense
Creative Crafter

Personality:
Fun
Assertive
Loyal
Dependable
Caring
Rule Follower
Thoughtful
Pet Lover
Determined
Dedicated/Committed
Honest
Contemplative/Self-Reflective

When I start thinking I'm not good enough all I need to do is read this list to realize I have a lot to offer!

What a day to jump back in! This is extremely tough to do.

Physical: I have good endurance - can maintain an effort for an extended period of time. I am at a good weight. I'm reasonably attractive.

Skills and Abilities: I'm artistically creative, can write a humorous narrative, can organize and carry a project through to completion.

Personality: I'm an interested listener - kind to those around me - willing to give credit for achievements. Try to build others up when they're feeling vulnerable.

I read it out loud. It didn't hit any false notes, so it probably did some good. emoticon

100 More DWL- Day 36 My Strengths

Create a list of your strengths.

As Linda suggests we need to hold tightly to the belief that we have these strengths, even during times when we don't feel them or do them.

1. In the space below, write "My strengths, even if I don't always believe them or do them."

MY STRENGTHS , EVEN IF I DON'T ALWAYS BELIEVE THEM OR DO THEM.

2. Then using the categories of physical attributes, skills and abilities, and personality traits, create a list of your strengths. I didn't find this easy but guess no one does really emoticon

Physical attributes: Smiles easily and often (engaging smile - liked this idea Susan), Very Healthy, good weight now, a curvy and strong body, attractive, pretty, appealing, sexy, active, energetic.

Skills and abilities: Can walk at quite a fast pace. Intelligent, knowledgeable, quick learner, competent, organized, good worker, quick thinker, confident, good Wife, Daughter and Daughter in Law, Good Mum to Chloe and James. My home is always clean and fairly organised. I can touch type and am fairly confident with the computer

Personality traits: Fun (sometimes) Sensitive, intuitive, thoughtful, caring, kind, gentle, patient, loving, assertive, fun, enjoyable to be with. Love to give and receive hugs especially when others need them too.

3. When you finish your list read it out loud. Write a note about how this feels.

Reading the list ALWAYS boosts my confidence and today it was perfect timing as for some reason I was feeling a bit 'flat' this morning so it was REALLY nice to do this task today and I am going to re-read it whenever I need it. emoticon

Day 36 - My strengths



Create a list of your strengths. Include phrases such as good weight or physically fit even if right now your weight is up and you haven’t exercised in a while. Don’t discount items on your list by saying, “I’m not really pretty or attractive or creative.” Instead, hold tightly to the belief that you have these strengths, even during times when you don’t feel them or do them.

• In the space below, write “My strengths, even if I don’t always believe them or do them.” Then using the categories of physical attributes, skills and abilities, and personality traits, create a list of your strengths.

MY STRENGTHS, EVEN IF I DON'T ALWAYS BELIEVE THEM OR DO THEM

Physical attributes:
Strong, healthy, energetic, flexible

Skills and abilities:
Self-starter, organized, action oriented, planner, problem solver, organized, competent, dependable, researcher

Personality traits:
Independent, optimistic, curious, caring, empathetic, compassionate, warm, patient, friendly, encourager, spiritual, innovative

3. When you finish your list read it out loud. Write a note about how this feels.

It makes me feel good about myself and takes my focus away from thinking about what and how much I eat and how much I weigh.

My strengths, even if I don’t always believe them or do them. I have the ability to build muscle quickly and am physically strong. My arm, legs and abs are very strong and supple. I am flexible and can move with grace. I love to dance and do it well. I am caring and capable. I have a stong faith in God and a healthy daily prayer life. I have a delightful sense of humor and an infectious laugh. I love to laugh and do it at every opportunity. Once I learned to laugh at myself, I discovered a source of continual amusement. I like to spread joy. I love to give and receive hugs. I enjoy creating cards, coloring, doing jigsaw puzzles, researching for an article and doing crossword puzzles or mazes. I'm alert and intelligent. I have bright eyes and an easy smile. I'm artistic. I enjoy being with my best friend who happens to be my Hubby. I also enjoy being alone with my own company. I'm honest and compassionate. I'm easily adaptable. I'm independent and determined. I've been called 'bull-headed', but it serves me well. I am committed and can persevere through most challenges. I am daily grateful and blessed in countless ways. I love our dog and she brings me joy and comfort. I am patient and fearless. I am an accomplished mature woman who has raised a family successfully and they're productive members of society. I still have a lot to offer this world. I'll have to come back and add later as I think of other strengths.

Reading this list aloud feels good. It helps me recognize I'm a whole lot more than a number on the scale.

Joy is a Choice. Choose joy moment by moment.

When all else fails, persistence prevails.

Injoy:) Carolyn

This has actually prevented me from applying for new jobs is recent years. Job applications used to be much more about practical qualifications and personality - all this self-assessment and self-promotion is very hard I think.
You came up with a good list.

Day #36 My Strengths

This was a hard one! It has taken me all day to think about this. I have always hated the question on job applications that asks "What are your strengths" and "What are your weaknesses". I have never viewed myself has having many "strengths", but my self-critical thinking can always find plenty of my weaknesses! The very things that are my strengths can also be my weaknesses at times. Well, here goes -


Physical Attributes:
Healthy
Strong
Tall
Long Legs

Day 36 my strength
Encouraging. Helpful. Caring. Doer
Hard for me to do this one as I don’t feel I have many. Usually a follower not a leader, back of the room observing or working not a part of. Make others look good and give them attention not myself

This is a topic that I will need to spend time in my quiet space to be honest about.
I will come back to it later.

Wonder why this is so hard for me.
Physical - very healthy, active, nice looking, willing to travel and explore new things & meet new people
Skills and abilities - crafty, talented, able to organize groups, a good parent and a good friend
Personality traits - loving, giving, able to care deeply, determined (sometimes called stubborn) and honest

Day 36 My strengths July 23 2018
Create a list of your strengths. Include phrases such as good weight or physically fit even if right now your weight is up and you haven’t exercised in a while. Don’t discount items on your list by saying, “I’m not really pretty or attractive or creative.” Instead, hold tightly to the belief that you have these strengths, even during times when you don’t feel them or do them.
Today
• In the space below, write “My strengths, even if I don’t always believe them or do them.” Then sing the categories of physical attributes, skills and abilities, and personality traits, create a list of your strengths.
PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES
SKILLS AND ABILITIES
PERSONALITY TRAITS
• When you finish your list read it out loud. Write a note about how this feels.

"What you FOCUS on becomes real" was the quote often used by a life coach friend of mine when we would teach SBA lending classes together as part of our community outreach. That's part of the reasoning behind my Spark name.




STRENGTHS:

Physical: No matter my age or my size I have always had an engaging smile and upbeat outlook on life. I am strong. I do not smoke and alcohol is something I might indulge in once or twice a year. I have a pleasant singing voice and a modicum of acting talent. I find humor in the mundane. I write well.

Abilities: I can complete a 5k (walking), I can lift heavy weights, I am a very competent caregiver, I type 120 WPM, I enjoy researching things, puzzles are no match for me, I have a green thumb and the ability to grow many healthy vegetables and flowers, I have domestic skills that I can share with the younger generations around me (home ec is no longer taught here), I bake vintage recipes, My home is clean and organized, I have no fear of failing.

Personality Traits: I am patient, kind and caring. I have an inner beauty and beautiful soul. I make a positive difference in the lives of others. I am loved by people and animals. I have a wicked sense of humor.
