Getting to know yourself is a difficult journey. A lot of people go through life, never discovering their true talents and passion. They may experience it from time to time, but they don’t know what their sweet spot is. Living life like this feels like a constant uphill battle.
Your sweet spot is the intersection of your talent and passion. Once you’ve tapped into your sweet spot, the sky is the limit. A good way to identify people who are living in their sweet spot, is their attitude towards life. These people don’t look at their job as something they dread or just as a means for a paycheck. No, these people don’t even consider their jobs work. They love what they do. They get excited each morning to go to the office.
For those of us who feel like we are not living in our sweet spot, there is good news. Tools like StrengthFinders, CPI Assessment, and others can help. These tools help us to understand where our natural talents lay. We also have the opportunity to continue our education at any point. Granted, we have to be willing to put in work.
Serving others will also help you get to know yourself. As leaders we need to help others develop and succeed, and by doing so, we grow. The feedback we receive from others will give us a better picture of who we are.
In my personal journey, it wasn’t until I went back to school in my 30s that I started to get in touch with my strengths. Bethel University provided me with the tools I needed to hone in on my sweet spot. My mission is to help organizations and people succeed, and provide leadership based on Christian values.
Do you know what your sweet spot is? If not, you should consider putting in the work to find it. As the saying goes, it may not be easy, but it’s worth it.
