3 Reasons To Play Bigger In Your Business By Using Your Strengths
I’ve been busy working on a program to help you understand how to become better money makers in your business based on your strengths.
Too often, we try to build our businesses using our weaknesses which then breeds resentment, anger, worry, doubt, frustration and shame. All this drama keeps us stuck and operating at a level that’s beneath us.
That’s why it’s so important to align with the gifts that God has given to you. This includes how you make money.
Here are 3 reasons why it’s so important to focus your energy on making money using your God Inspired gifts, talents, and natural strengths.
1. We start making more money
When we start to appreciate what we’re good at and stop focusing on what we’re terrible at, money looks different. We begin to see money as what it is – just paper – and can better embrace our role as money creators.
2. We are more confident
Making money in business involves marketing, sales, accounting, fulfillment, customer service, and technology. That’s a lot to do. When we focus on the area we’re good, we are freed up to hire the right people and implement the right processes to help us in the areas we’re weak.
You don’t ignore your weaknesses – you just boldly choose to stop trying to fix it and use your energy on the parts of your business you’re really good at.
3. We find our F.L.O.W. Factor™
Discovering, monetizing, and leveraging the worth of your gifts will give you the confidence of Knowing that you can excel as a business owner, releasing the chains holding you back and turning your disappointments and mistakes, into tangible wealth.
You begin to see that there’s nothing wrong with you – you simply need to adapt your business model to mirror your natural strengths.
Grab a pen and paper. Now, Think back over your entire life. Write down what you have consistently been great at, as well as past skills you were recognized
for and what you did really well as a child – – especially the things
that were considered odd, unusual or that you were scolded for.
Here are some questions to get your started….
1. What did you love to do as a kid
2. What did you do well growing up that seemed unusual or unique?
3. What comes so easily to you, just like breathing?
4. What are you doing when others tell you it is a pleasure to watch you working?

Hi Shameca! What an awesome post about the realities of making money. I love that “it’s just paper” and to focus on strengths rather than trying to “fix” weakness. I’ve learned to hire the right people to do the things that I’m not so good at but they are phenomenal. In turn, instead of worrying about how crappy a new graphic image looks, I can focus on what I do best, which is write and coach.
Awesome article! Ten years ago I made the switch from working for others to working for myself and I’ve never been happier. Sure it has it’s challenges and money can be sparse sometimes BUT I have never had the fullfillment before that I have now.
