Being aware of your strengths gives you the direction you need. It allows you to focus your energy and resources on the areas that are your natural strengths. When you know your strengths and skills, you are even better equipped to change your career altogether.
How to identify your top skills and strengths:
I personally did all these activities when I stopped working for corporate and jumped into working full time in my business. I took a lot of time to reflect back on what it is that I knew well, what skills I had gathered along the way, and what my greatest accomplishments were. I also reflected back on what things I enjoyed doing the most and where time was lost. I made a list and worked with my mentor on packaging what I knew and finding the audience that needed what I knew. I also went around asking old colleagues and people that I used to work with about what it was that they enjoyed the most when working with me. I gotta say that their perspective was very valuable in helping me identify my strengths and natural abilities.
Here is one more important self reflection question to inspire you: If money was no issue, what would I do for the rest of my life? What do you day dream about doing? Try some of the answers to these questions by taking one small baby step into that direction. Put a plan together by picking a date in the near future and plan out steps to get there. Get curious and take action. This will give you the clarity that you need. Think of ways that you can monetize this passion. You also have to be willing to get uncomfortable when testing out and putting yourself into new situations that will challenge and help you grow. The mindset of being consistent and not giving up will help you get there.
