Choosing Work

 

What if I don’t have any strengths?

Everyone has strengths!  Sometimes, it may seem like you don’t have any, but the truth is we all have strengths in something.

If you are feeling like you don’t have any strengths, ask someone you trust to comment on a strength (or two, or three) that you have. Review your resume, or write down all the tasks that you did in your last job. Allow yourself to see all the things you were able to do, even if you weren’t the best at them.

Strengths can also be supports that you have that will help you choose a goal.  Supports may be the people, places, things, and activities that help you to be successful and satisfied (Anthony, et al.).  When considering your strengths, consider the supports you have around you. Whether it’s people who are behind you, places you can count on to be there for you, things that help you, or activities that help make you stronger.
