30 Days of Character Strengths: A Guided Practice to Ignite Your Best
Jane S. Anderson
Thomas Edison, whose inventions changed peoples’ lives for the better, said: “If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.” 30 Days of Character Strengths is a guided practice to help you shift into new possibilities in your work, relationships, health, and virtually every dimension of your life. Character strengths are human traits that cultivate goodness and excellence. Being grounded in character strengths elevates your capacity to express who you are and what you do when at your very best. Day by day, you’ll observe your strengths in action and apply them in precise ways to boost achievement, strengthen relationships, and rise up to challenges. This book is for everyone: the parent seeking to create a happy home, the new manager or leader bringing together her team, and the college student finding his way in the world. If you’re new to character strengths, it will help you develop a meaningful awareness of your strengths and engage them optimally. If you’re a seasoned strengths practitioner, it offers practices you may not have explored, like creating a strength-based habit or taking a Mindful Pause to shift into your strengths when you need a boost in energy. If you’re a leader, manager, coach, consultant, therapist, teacher, parent, grandparent, or someone passionate about bringing out the best in others, this book offers 1) an approach to introducing character strengths work and 2) activities that apply a lens of strengths to navigating challenges, reaching for dreams, and walking through daily life. Jane Anderson, your guide who accompanies you every step of the way, weaves together inspiring stories and examples with research distilled from positive psychology, the scientific study of human flourishing. Discover how your strengths can become pathways to living more authentically, cultivating excellence, and shifting into new possibilities!
