After figuring out what we’re passionate about from our last session in 5 Ways to Focus and Find Your Passion, it’s time to figure out where our strengths lie.
It’s important to identify your strengths when uncovering your passion. If you’re like me, you may not realize the strengths you have.

Admitting our strengths can definitely be difficult. I’m not sure if it’s because we’re raised to be modest and not to ‘brag’ about ourselves, if we’re just that insecure, or if it’s a combination of both. I’m thinking the latter.
After a women’s retreat one spring where we did a breakout session on spiritual gifts, I was amazed that the ladies had such a hard time figuring out their gifts. I wrote about it on my faith blog in the post We All Have a Gift! What’s Yours! and included an easy-to-take assessment on finding spiritual gifts.
Until I took the assessment, I had never really considered my faith to be a gift, but my eyes were open to the fact that no one has my faith; it’s unique to me. Through it, I found the confidence I needed to recognize my passion and purpose.
Everyone has a gift. We all possess certain strengths. If we’re to live our purpose, we need to tap into our strengths, combine them with our passions and motivation, and live a full life.
