What Happens When We Focus on Our Strengths?

The disposition of optimism. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. How can our optimism effect our overall well-bing? – Winston Churchill

Watch this video on The Science of Happiness: Is Your Glass Half-Full or Half-Empty? I love how the more we talk about positives in our lives and what our strengths are, the more happy we become.

Try it. Think for a moment about a recent time in your life when you experienced something positive. Maybe something that you achieved, something good that happened to you, or a time you did something good for someone else. Focus on the details and think about 3 strengths that you have. Choose one of those strengths to focus on as you tell your story. Notice the change when you focus on the positive!

Remember this as you choose the stories that you tell about your life.
