What’s Right With You? Understanding Your Personal Strengths

houston therapists

I recently read an inspiring book, What’s Right With You: Debunking Dysfunction and Changing Your Life and thought I would share some questions from the book to help you consider your own unique strengths.

 

1. What are the qualities that describe you when you are your very best? What were you doing when these aspects became apparent to you?

 

2. What kind of person do these aspects describe? Or, what kind of person do these aspects show an aspiration toward?

 

3. What are the qualities that others would describe in you when you are at your very best? What were you doing when they noticed these aspects?

 

4. What kind of person do these aspects describe? Or, what kind of person do these aspects show an aspiration toward?

 

5. Who was the first person to tell you that they noticed the best of you in action? What were you doing when they noticed these aspects?

 

6. Who was the last person to tell you that they noticed the best of you in action? What were you doing when they noticed these aspects?

 

7. Who in your life wouldn’t be surprised to see you stand up to these situations and prevail? What experiences would they draw upon to make these conclusions about you? What “quintessentially you” stories would they tell?

 

8. Complete this statement: When I am at my very best I am ___________________________________________.

 

9. Think of a time in your life that was very difficult, but you managed to get through it.

 

10. What personal resources did you draw on to get through this difficulty?

 

11. What family, spiritual, friend, or community support did you draw on to get through?

 

12. What does this story tell about who you are and what you can do?

 

13. Who else knows this story about you?

 

14. What do you think this story says about who you are and what you are capable of?

 

So, what’s right with you?Sounds True
