Strengths Finder 2.0

This book, Strengths Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath, labelled in red bold title with white background, caught my attention immediately and I decided to borrow it.

We are often encourage to try our very best in whatever things we are doing since young. Even we have failed to perform the tasks well, we will continue to work harder in order to reach our goal. Most books that I had read, would quote some live successful examples to motivate readers not to give up. They also give readers the thought of continuing to strive for the better in order to create their own successful stories just like what they had read. Sadly, few would actually succeed as they are actually devoted more time to fix at their shortcomings instead. The reason for failure is individual themselves do not really know they are actually focusing on their shortcomings. Hence, the author encourages readers to discover what is their natural talents and to spend their time to develop their strengths instead! With the natural talents and times committed to practise on the strength, would be a lot easier than to learn things which we are weak at. Thus, I do agree with the author on this and personally feel that it is really important that we could discover what is our natural talents. But how do? The author introduce Gallup, that is an online assessment to assist reader to discover their talent. With that, there are hundreds of strategies included in the books as well to apply your strengths and change the way you look at yourself and the world around you.

Unfortunately, it is a pity that I could not go for the online assessment as it requires an unique access code which somehow not included at the end of the book for borrowed books. Thus, I would not be able to know which top 5 types that I belong to. But I do consider of buying one later just for the access code to uncover what is my talents is. Hope you soon discover your own talent too!
