Chapter 1. Begin Game Here > Use Your Strengths

Use Your Strengths

It might be difficult to think of yourself as an impact player. When you look at the playing field, it seems large, cold, and lonely. The players look different, too. If you're a Baby Boomer or a retiree, you could be feeling too old to play well. If you're a recent graduate or immigrant, you could be feeling inadequate on new turf. If you've been out of work for a long time, you could be feeling lost. If you're a full-time parent, you could be feeling isolated. All of these feelings could deter you, but you won't let them because you will use your strengths to overcome your fears.

Perhaps you haven't thought much about what makes you strong. Chances are, however, when you make moves in life, you're operating from an innate sense of what you do well. Everyone has unique ways to reach their goals. That's the reason people make moves differently, and that's all right. As an adult, you've collected unique life experiences to take out on that field with you. Use those strengths as well as your heart and mind to get comfortable on the playing field. Be a genuine player. You'll soon see that any game played successfully is played for real—with wisdom, courage, strategy, and timing. There are no false moves: There are only moves that are true for you.
