Do you have a favorite word that excites you?
I do. That word is flourish!
I now know why since picking up Marcus Buckingham’s latest book, Find your Strong Life; what the happiest and most successful women do differently. Buckingham gained fame through the Strengths Finder Assessment. Now he has a new one strictly for women. Take it free at www.stronglifetest.com.
I tested as a Weaver. A what? A weaver! This is the person who asks, “With whom can I connect?” It makes me wonder if only children always come out as weavers looking for connection. At any rate, I knew he had me pegged properly when he used the word “flourish” in his description.
He describes the weaver as an individual who is a catalyst and explains, “… like all catalysts, you must bring certain ingredients to the compound if it is to flourish.”
The flourishing life—that is what I am after. Okay now I understand why I weave people and resources together for life transformation. It’s to get everyone flourishing.
Check out the assessment and discover your true self. Then pick up the book for a two-page explanation. Maybe you, too, will find your favorite word tucked into Buckingham’s description and understand why it’s a perfect fit! Then go write a blog!
