To Achieve Your Goals Use Your Personal Strengths and Skills
In order to achieve our goals we must use our strengths, skills, and discipline. The virtues also greatly assist us in accomplishing our life goals, and in many ways are just as fundamental as our skills, knowledge, and personal strengths.
By understanding how the virtues are associated with character strengths, we can utilize our best qualities to make our goals and dreams become a reality.
For instance, the virtue of temperance represents life balance and relates to the strengths of self-discipline and prudence. To attain our goals it is vital to use self-discipline, good judgement and balance in life.
The virtue of wisdom connects to knowledge, learning, creativity, perspective, open-mindedness, critical thinking, and curiosity. These are all character strengths in positive psychology that connect to wisdom, and they all play essential roles for reaching our dreams.
When we learn to use the virtues and their associated character strengths, we develop the personal qualities necessary for realizing our fullest potentials.
