Identify Your Dominant Strengths
There are multiple ways and resources to assist you in identifying your dominant strengths. In this module, I will introduce you to two different options. Remember, strengths are innate, natural talents that when developed, become identified as our strengths. One way to identify our dominant strengths is through self-reflection. Take time and review each strength and its description, you can find these in a later module, and allow your mind to connect with what feels most real to you. As you review and learn about each strength, your inner you will hone in on what stands true for you.

Achieve By Living, Working, and Playing Through Your Strengths
When we allow our strengths to lead us through life's situations, allow them to guide our actions, and even our reactions, we will find that we meet less resistance from others, and even ourselves. This is because we are honing in and utilizing our true sources of talent and wisdom. By doing this, we will find greater opportunities to achieve in our work environments, our personal lives, our community responsibilities, in all areas of our lives. In this module, we'll cover how we can find greater success and achievement by first, gaining a greater self-confidence as we learn to think more positively about ourselves. Next, by improving our relationships as we unite through understanding other's differences. Then, by aligning our strengths with our life responsibilities.
