Then, look ahead to how you will grow in the practice after you have done many repetitions of Steps 1 and 2.

Notes on Practice
When you use well-chosen words and repeat them to yourself, they have a feeling of being truly who you are. So, they become more real for you. When you have a solid sense of your strengths, you can feel certain that others are wrong when they disagree with you. You aren’t a victim of the faulty opinions of other people anymore.
(Okay, some people don’t have clarity about who they are and never will, but these cases are rare. They should not slow you down in knowing your strengths.)
Articulating Your Strengths

“Subjective strengths are the strengths that only you define in your own words, in your own way. And they’re the most important ones because you’re talking to yourself a lot of the time. And when you talk to yourself, you have a meaning for certain strengths and they might be different from what other people think.”
