“Within your heart, keep one still, secret spot where your dreams may go.” Louise Driscoll
We spend much of our time looking for answers to our life questions, looking outside of ourselves ….. for the information we already possess and which are only found by discovering our signature inner strengths.
“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.” Oliver Wendell Holmes
Quite often as an Octogenarian, I am asked how do you stay so young at heart? My answer is … Curiosity. Curiosity keeps us young in mind and heart. As a coach, it was my curiosity that led me to explore my inner strengths, even though, I was not aware that I possessed the signature strength of curiosity, when I started exploring my inner strengths at around 60 years of age. Twenty plus years later, I spend my time helping others to find their precious inner gifts.
As we rely too much on our own knowledge and opinions, we lose our ability to call on the strengths we were born with to flex our mental abilities to create new ways of accomplishing things.
We forget that we are more powerful when we call on long unused talents. We need to remember that there might be different ways of accomplishing things.
I rely on my talent as a leader to stimulate options for generating an approach that will cause my student to solve their challenges. Through examination of the results of their inner strengths assessment, they are able to activate one or more of the sleeping treasures to expedite their endeavors to success. They report new insights that ignite breakthroughs that inspire them to build solid solutions.
If you feel that you are alone in your journey to achieve your dreams, your power is within you. By uncovering your inner strengths, you will discover that your deepest fear is not that you are inadequate; your deepest fear is that you are powerful beyond what you already possess, deep within yourself. And which are only found by stopping…
And taking a good look inside…
That within your heart there is a spot…
Where your dreams lie.
