Strength Activity 4:
Include Your Community
Through our relationships with others, we have other eyes that act as mirrors to tell us who we are. Sometimes people aren’t accurate in their assessment. But trusted people who care about us, can give us enlightening perspective. Asking people what strengths they see in us could be a bit nerve racking, but it can be so rewarding!
- Receiving opinions from trusted friends, mentors, and family helps us see ourselves more accurately. Their stories are reality based evidence and can offer us meaningful affirmation.
- Their viewpoint can help us combat limiting beliefs and perhaps see ourselves in a different light.

Identify three strengths out of all the categories. If you’d rather not show them the list, you can simply ask them to name a few.
See if they will share a few of their strength stories with you. Even one will be great to have! 🙂
