Wallace Goddard, a spiritual mentor on my blog roll: http://www.drwally.org/ had this to say today on his blog. I think it is an interesting idea that I plan to think a lot about.
A powerful idea from Martin Seligman’s excellent book, Authentic happiness: “Authentic happiness comes from identifying and cultivating your most fundamental strengths and using them every day in work, love, play, and parenting.” Many of us fret endlessly about our mistakes, faults, and shortcomings. Yet the key to our happiness is using our god-given strengths regularly. What are your strengths? How can you create more opportunities to use your strengths this week?
