Live Life to the Fullest by Using Your Strengths

It is not grandiose cloud talk to think that each day, you have the opportunity to live life to the fullest. With abundance.

The opportunity knocks with the freshness of each new day. It knocks for you alone, and only you can answer it with expectancy.

No matter what the circumstance, it rests on our own shoulders and hearts to live life to the fullest.

In a season of joy or a season of grief. In rest or in exhaustion. In a marriage that is thriving or in one that is spiraling. In a role that suits you perfectly or one that you are looking to escape. At home with kids at your ankles or lofted in a C-suite.

You already have what it takes to live life to the fullest. You have your uniqueness—you have your Strengths.

Today, we have partnered with a fantastically brilliant, driven and down-to-earth consultant whose own personal life-adventure is filled with every effort to live life the fullest, Murray Guest. {In fact, when we first met at the Gallup Coaches Summit in 2016, he introduced me to the idea that there is a conference all about awesomeness…now that sounds like living life to the fullest!}

He has walked a fantastically trying and exhilarating life journey so far. Understanding and owning his Strengths has given him renewal that set him on a course to make a profound impact on the organizations he works with and on his own personal effort to live life to the fullest.

Today he is sharing 7 tips to live life to the fullest by using your Strengths. And they are so good and so doable!

7 Tips to Live Life to the Fullest by Using Your Strengths

1 :: Daily, Pause in Strength

Each day identify one of your dominant Strengths that you will consciously apply throughout the day. Pause before you start a task and ask yourself, how can I apply my Strengths here?

2 :: Celebrate Strengths Around You

Celebrate the strengths in others! When you notice a family member, friend or colleague’s strength shine, take time to acknowledge it. Let them know through a conversation, a note or a gift.

3 :: Bring out the Strengths of Others

Be your best by helping others be their best! Who can you partner, collaborate with or delegate a task, so they’re applying their strengths and in turn you’re focusing on what gives you energy.

4 :: Keep Your Strengths Top of Mind

Integrate your strengths into your daily life to remind you of what makes you uniquely you! Keep them visible {bathroom mirror, on the fridge, phone/pc wallpaper, in your planner, journal, email footer etc}, and include them in daily affirmations and meditations.

5 :: Take Deep Breaths with Your Strengths

If you feel down or stressed, take a moment to breathe deeply and remember your Strengths. Remember how they make you uniquely wonderful and the energy they bring you, then look to apply them to overcome the stress your feeling.

6 :: Share the Inspiration of the Strengths-perspective

Spread the word! Introduce the world of Strengths to someone in your life {family or friend} and help them aim their strengths. When we show others the power of a strengths focus it also energizes us!

7 :: Reflect on the Your Strengths, Regularly

Conduct a strengths weekly review! Take 15 minutes to reflect on the previous week to identify and acknowledge how you’ve applied your strengths and also identify areas/tasks for the upcoming week where you can apply your Strengths. {Use Murray’s 2018 planner for an even more strategic take on making it a successful year}.

I am ready to dive into these 7 tips myself, to live life to the fullest through my own Strengths. How about you?

This is your year. Today is your day.

Opportunity knocks each morning. How will you answer it?

This is your year to live life to the fullest because you know your Strengths.
