How to Choose Growth

Today I was watching a praise and worship band perform an amazing rendition of “Hark the Harold Angels Sing” and I thought to myself, I wish I could sing like them.   

All of the sudden, I flashed back to being six years old. I was sitting in my first-grade classroom and “Tim” raised his hand and told the teacher (and the whole class) that there was someone singing off key… and he pointed to me! 

Since that day, I decided I could not sing.    

Has something happened that squashed your confidence and kept you from being your best self?   

I get it. And I regret letting moments like this stunt my growth.  

For years, I had no idea I had other innate talents that needed to be unlocked. I had no idea what they were, and no one had taken the time to help me discover them.  

The breakthrough came when I took an assessment called CliftonStrengths. Once I knew my strengths, I became more energized, more productive, and more confident in all I set out to do.  

I experienced change in my own life and encouraged those I worked with to learn their strengths too.     

And after I became a Gallup CliftonStrengths coach, I saw a need for people to have a daily framework to practice their strengths.  

So, I created The Strengths Journal™, the first ever companion guide to the Gallup CliftonStrengths assessment that helps people plan their day based on their unique talents.  

It’s been a year since we launched The Strengths Journal, and what a journey it has been. I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside some amazing leaders and their teams, as well as coaches. I get to help them all get clear on their purpose and practice living out their strengths daily.  

The greatest reward is the transformation I have seen in clients, like Joseph Bojang, who wrote:  

I’m exceedingly thankful for Dana’s insight and priceless feedback during our coaching sessions. The training she provided in addition to The Strengths Journal™ helped me discover that I needed to be more intentional to achieve the dreams and goals I have for my business and my life. Because of Dana, I’m well on my way to dominating each day and not fizzling out."  

And fellow coaches, like Edie Ricchiutowho said… 

"I have found a great deal of success connecting my Strengths to daily tasks, which has enabled me to be more in control of my day and life! These tools are excellent for working on mission, values, and goals between coaching sessions."  

I am blessed to have this opportunity to come alongside such amazing people and watch them transform not only their lives, but impact the world.    

If you’re ready to change your life, set up time with me for a quick discovery call. Let’s partner together to design the purpose-filled life you deserve.
