Five Stones

Know Your Sweet Spot

One of the most important lessons that I have learned throughout my years in ministry is to always play towards your strengths. If you think about it the world tells you to do the exact opposite. So many voices try and tell you to work on your weaknesses to become a well rounded person. One of my weakest areas in my ministry would be when it comes to counseling. No matter how much I try I don’t think I will ever rise above a 5 in that area. So why not put my energy in one of my strengths to bring it from an 8 to a 9. Below are my strengths according to the book Strengths Finder 2.0.

Activator: Impatient for action. Once a decision is made you must act.

Communication: You desire to inspire people to act from speaking, writing, telling stories.

Significance: You desire to be very significant in the eyes of other people. You want to be recognized, you want to be heard. You want to stand out. You want to be know for the unique strengths that you bring.

Maximizer: Excellence not average is your measure. You excel at finding strengths and making them stronger.

Relator: You are drawn toward people you already know. You find strength from being around close friends. The more you share with someone the more you risk together. These are your steps toward real friendship.
