How Your Strengths Define Your Purpose 

Education & Training with Darryl Davis Seminars

When we struggle with insecurity, we need to focus on our strengths because it’s in our strengths that we can find our life purpose.  

One of the biggest differences between successful people and struggling people is that successful people focus on their strengths rather than their weaknesses.  


Norman Cousins, an American Journalist, once said, “People are never more insecure than when they become obsessed with their fears at the expense of their dreams.” How is your insecurity keeping you from moving to your next level? 


Where Your Focus Is 


Successful people have discovered where their strength lies, whether it's in sales or business or connecting with people. They lead with their strengths and either try to improve in the areas they are weakest in or delegate those tasks to someone strong at it.  

Insecure people focus on their weaknesses more than their strengths. While they try to improve on those things, without having a solid understanding of their strengths, they become unmotivated and disempowered.  

I’m not saying “don’t bother trying to improve yourself” because I fully believe we should try to improve our skills and abilities in those areas we aren’t as strong in, but those shouldn’t be your focus because eventually, it begins to breed insecurity which is the very thing we are trying to overcome!

How Your Strengths Define Your Purpose 

I believe there is purpose in the Universe. I see it like a massive machine with thousands and thousands of little moving parts, and every person has their role. Each person has their strengths, skill sets, and talents. I don’t believe anyone is here by accident or has their skills, talents, and interests by accident. I believe this is all by design, and every person is on this planet to contribute their strengths and talents to the world. So, when you focus on what you aren’t good at and beat yourself up over failing, you are robbing the world of the talents that you have. The world is worse off without you and what you can contribute.

As you try and improve your skills and abilities to get to your next level in life, please lean into what you are good at. Lean into your strengths and interests; you have them for a reason. They are how you make a difference in this world and why you are on this planet.

After assessing over 500 people, I can accurately state over 98% do not know their actual strengths. This assessment is objective and far more accurate than many of the subjective assessments.

Like Leanne Smith I have assessed many people.  They don't know their strengths but then once they know they should leverage the strengths rather than concentrating on their weaknesses.
