Identifying your Resources
Your Resources include your personal strengths, talents and abilities. To identify your resources, start by asking yourself these questions:
- What do I enjoy doing the most?
- What do I do that seems to have the most impact on other people?
- What do I secretly believe I can do, but I’ve just never tried?
- What’s something other people tell me I’m good at?
