Find your strengths

Today I read Strengths Finder 2.0 and took the online test. I found my top 5 strengths: Context, Connectedness, Intellection, Adaptability, and Restorative. 

Context means thinking about the past. In Filipino, we say: "Ang hindi lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makakarating sa patutunguhan." Those who do not look back to where they came from will never reach their destination.

Connectedness means having faith in the links among all things and believing that everything happens for a reason. "Ang lahat ng bagay ay magka-ugnay." Everything is connected.

Intellection means thinking about ideas and reflecting about your life. Think with your head and feel with your heart. "Mag-isip muna bago magsalita." Think before you speak.

Adaptability means going with the flow. "Hindi problema ang kaibigan sa taong marunong makisama." Being a friend is not a problem to a person who can adapt.

Restorative means solving problems. "Lahat ng problema, may paraan." Every problem has a solution.

I still use my top strengths as a lawyer. I look at the past, see the connections, think about ideas, adapt to the situation, and solve problems. But I hope to use more of my strengths in my work and my life.
