Our strengths are our gifts
Strengths are our unique set of core abilities. They are where the root of our talent lies and encompass our natural tendencies.
“Look well into thyself; there is a source of strength which will always spring up if thou wilt always look.” Marcus Aurelius
Each one of us has strengths. Inner strengths are mostly independent of skills, which are things we learn. Skills can come and go throughout our lifetime, but strengths are relatively constant (though they can be further developed and refined) and align more with our personality traits and overall character.
