LIFE is the second name for GROWTH; not growth of money, fame, name or talents alone, but of anything that you are involved in and you aim to achieve

5What is the purpose of our LIFE?Purpose of Life: To know the 5 WsWho you areWhat do you love to do your passionWho you do it forWhom you do it, do they really want it or needed itWhat you got out of it and resulted in some change

The Purpose of Life is Growth : Grow in all that you do, give your 100%. Contribute your mind, body and soul to achieve growth.

Success & FailureSUCCESS: Success is the ability to execute and grow with consistent consistency (in all that you are a part of) with your given abilities, situations, constraints and requirements.

FAILURE: Its an other stepping stone to greatness A Failure of execution of one of your targets doesnt guarantee that you fail to reach your aspirations, neither does success of any of your intermediate steps guarantee your final dreams to be achievedPASSION AND DETERMINATIONPASSION:A strong feeling which develops deep interest in the activity each time you are involved in it, by default without much mental efforts of pushing yourself to doing it.

DETERMINATION:Determination is the ability to stick to your decisions with all your heart and execute what you are doing to your possible best & fullest, until you achieve what you desire to.Level 2 : Define StrengthThree benchmarks of strengthsWhen thinking about the task, you are excited; you anticipate the activity;When doing the task you tend to lose track of timeOnce the task is completed, you havemoreenergy than before.Mark of Strength"Be bold, be perceptive, keep investigating your strengths. The secret of success is to become more of who you already are.Your strengths are those activities that make you feel strong when you do them and also are things that others see as being good in you.Your strengths provide the greatest opportunity for growth and not your weaknesses.A Good Team member express their strength and help others to express theirs to ensure that the team achieves its goals.9Characteristics of StrengthSIGN of StrengthSuccess you find success when you use this trait.Instinct you are continually drawn to these activities.Growth you find using this trait easy and doing it helps you to grow and be happy.Needs you find that doing these things fulfils a need in your life.Stop your WeaknessesStop doing some of these activities.Team up with people who actually feel strong when doing the activities that weaken you.Offer to use your strengths to help other people and do work in your organization: that way you are more likely to be judged on your strengths, rather than weaknesses.Perceive your weaknesses from another perspective. See if there are any creative ways you can apply your strengths to these tasks.Case Study

Case Study: Meet Savitha. As part of her job, Sharon retypes manuscripts. Savitha is a great typist. Her fingers fly like the wind across the keyboard and she makes few (if any) errors. This would make typing a strength by our first basic definition.Now lets explore this deeper. We learn that Savitha looks forward to large typing assignments (meeting criteria #1). When she types, she zones out, moving effortlessly through the pages of her project (criteria #2). Finally, as she types that final punctuation completing the project; she feels exhilarated. A sense of satisfaction and pride fill her as she notes the quick turn-around time she achieved (#3). Typing is certainly one of Savithas strengths.But suppose, instead we had discovered the following about our girl. Savitha doesnt reallyliketyping, but its part of her job and after all, shes good at it, so her boss frequently asks her to take on these large projects. (She got to be a fast typist in school because she saw it as a necessary job skill to acquire.) Savitha would much rather answer the phones or work on filing. The manuscript arrives on her desk, and she looks at it with dread. How long will it take to get through THAT? She pushes it aside. She procrastinates. When she eventually gets going shes watching the clock, impatiently waiting for her upcoming coffee break. Finally finishing the project, Savitha looks up and thinks,Im ready for a break. It must be 5 oclock somewhere.Typing in this case is definitelynot one of Savithas strengths. She may begoodat it, but it isnota strength.10Level 3: Discover Strengths SWOT Analysis
