Darius,

I think you, wait for it… hit the nail on the head with this one. Haha I had to.

But seriously, I think you’re spot on when you advise people to take a closer look at their strengths. And to keep mining their strengths until they find that magic blend where strength and joy (and a hint or two of passion) can all collide together.

I also think you’re spot on with the “why” behind why we sometimes look at the strengths of others and want that to be our strength too. Fear is often, a very powerful motivator. Not only fear of something but that awful fear of being left out too.

Thanks for sharing!
