Do you know what your superpower is? The thing that you naturally do best; maybe the thing that you don’t even realize you do better than anyone else!
I learned for the first time around age 40 what my true strengths were; those things that just came easy for me and gave me energy. To my surprise, not one of my top 5 strengths had ONE thing to do with the 20 plus year career I had been in!
