  • Be more judgmental | Cynthia Lou
    being more judgmental Oh it s ok that these things happen Let them live their lives Oh it s ok that those close to me are doing things that are incongruent with my values and belief systems I should stop being so judgmental No I claiming my power back and with it I shall reframe judgement as Discernment Lack of discernment led me down a slippery slope of passivity that is not really who I am not really Lack of discernment took me off my course as I allowed situations to bend me when I could CHOSEN to take a more direct path a path of my choosing So I m back to my discerning ways Clean habits Organized workspaces and work habits Clean surfaces Organized papers organized books Showing up every day to create On time and on schedule With the kind of structure that I know best supports my creative expression Sure some people enjoy more chaos more flexibility in their time and schedules Being more discerning I have to let those people work their way First I judge it as being distracting to me Then I use discernment to guide myself towards what I know I need

  • Strengths & Strategy Video 4: StrengthsFinder, part 2 – An Analytical Approach to Finding Your Strengths (Strength & Strategy Series) | Cynthia Lou
    Clifton is hailed as the Father of Strengths Psychology and the Grandfather of Positive Psychology He saw that most of our conversation and attitude was geared towards fixing the negative and so set out to start celebrating the good qualities in people our strengths He realized that once a strength was identified it was then typically ignored as our resources shifted to fixing weaknesses Clifton s Soar With Your Strengths was published in 1995 a few years into his multi decade partnership with the Gallup Organization a research and analysis company Soar With Your Strengths is the wild west hands on how to self study version of strengths finding that allows for a level of individualized nuance that 34 rigid categories of preset strengths can overlook Clifton partnered with Rath in 2000 and developed the original StrengthFinder test which became StrengthsFinder 2 0 The one two punch of StrengthsFinder 2 0 and Soar with Your Strengths allows you to delve more deeply into the discovering of your strengths with a two pronged multi faceted approach through free form exercises then through statistical analysis dipping back and forth between the two a right brained left brained approach First we explore Next we look at some pre set categories Then we go back and plug in our analytical results into the exploration for an even deeper look into our strengths I believe it is important to have an understanding of how to find our own strengths as we covered in video 3 And I also understand that while we are learning to fish it s nice to be given a few fishes to eat until we are masterful enough to catch all the fish our appetites desire which is where StrengthsFinder comes in Just like astrology is something of a blanket analysis

  • Strengths & Strategy Video 3: Discover Your Strengths, A Journey and Analysis | Cynthia Lou
    weed out weaknesses and focus our efforts on our talents and strengths the faster we can achieve goals that we d only dreamed of accomplishing Woo hoo Yes it IS exciting I ve discovered so much about myself making this worksheet meticulously stepping through each process and writing out each description I did the work beforehand on myself to understand the best way to present the book s material Then when the worksheet was done I printed it out and filled it out all over again I got an even clearer understanding of my strengths and weaknesses Don t underestimate these simple looking exercises My whole business was leaning on a weakness Like putting a boulder on top of a house made of toothpicks no wonder I kept losing traction Now I m putting the boulder on the ground and leveraging it s innate power The Worksheet Click here to download Your Strengths Discovery Roadmap PDF The worksheet has editable forms so you can complete it on your computer or print it out and draw on it My recommendation is to first print out the work sheet so you can draw and write on it Using your hand motions and feeling the freedom to scribble on margins on the front and back of the pages and PLAY fires more synapses in the brain than the simple motion of typing on a computer thus opening more channels of communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain and between the lobes in general Ever get writer s block sitting in front of your computer This is one of the reasons why fewer mental resources being called upon Once you ve doodled away on the worksheet THEN go back and type in your answers and print THAT out so you have
