Strengths Finder

I recently purchased a book by Tom Rath called STRENGTHS FINDER 2.0. I've heard of a test by the same name given to college age students to help them determine their path in life and was intrigued when I saw the book. I believe the book offers the assessment as well as much information to help one "have the opportunity to do what you do besst every day." His theory is that "from the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths." It is an interesting theory. Now I am trying to decide if I move this book to the top of my reading pile or finish the others first. Have any of you either read this book or taken a Strengths Finders Assessment? If so, would you kindly let me know your thoughts on it's merits, so I can decide whether to do so myself sooner rather than later. Thank you!

I woke this morning quite frustrated with my day ahead as there is very little time for writing or any writing related activities. I turned to the beautiful Power Thought Cards by Louise L. Hay that I received recently. I found one that helped my mental state and thought I'd share it with all of you in case you are suffering from the same.

The front of the card says: "I let go of all expectations."

The saying on the reverse reads: "I flow freely and lovingly with life. I love myself. I know that only good awaits me at every turn."

Enjoy your day and find the good that awaits you. I plan to do the same.
