Signature Strengths

Did you know that people who use their strengths every day are 3x more likely to report having an excellent quality of life, and 6x more likely to be engaged at work?

Check out my top seven scientifically based Signature Strengths surveyed by the VIA Institute on Character:

1) Creativity: Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last you create what you will. -George Bernard Shaw

2) Perspective: The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is the most difficult period in one’s life. Through a difficult period, you can learn; you can develop inner strength, determination, and courage to face the problems. His Holiness the Dalai Lama

3) Humor: Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.-Langston Hughes

4) Bravery: I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship. -Louisa May Alcott

5) Curiosity: Life is an unanswered question, but let’s still believe in the dignity and importance of that question. -Tennessee Williams

6) Kindness: That’s what I consider true generosity. You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing. -Simone de Beauvoi

7) Social Intelligence: The judgment of others does not change who I am. Quite the opposite is true. It reveals who they are. -Terry McPhearson
