Mental health professionals often ask people to list their strengths. Many could only list one or two. See how many you can check as one of yours.
EMOTIONAL FITNESS TIPS
Tip one: How to find your strengths.
- Complete the check list.
- Ask a friend you trust to check your strengths using the list
- Add strengths the friend saw, that you didn’t notice.
Tip two: How to face your weaknesses. Everything not noted as a strength is possibly a weakness. Circle your weakness. Cross off those that are not things you control. Talents are gifts, you either have been given a talent or you haven’t been gifted.
Tip three: The weakness that you have a measure of control over can be turned into a SMART Goal.
If you are a parent, use this checklist to appreciate your child’s strengths. Once a child is comfortable reading, s/he can be introduced to this checklist and helped to review it.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO
Remember to share all you find of value on the internet. All here crave recognition. A like says “Thank You.” Comments say you have read and thought about the post. Sharing is a gift to three people: the blogger, the people you share with, and you for your kindness bless you.
