CliftonStrengths®: Positivity® – Are you the happy one?

by | Oct 14, 2018 | Strengths

You love living life to its fullest and are easily entertained

Do you feel like the energizer bunny that just happily keeps going and going? With the natural talent of Positivity®, you look at the bright side of life and find a silver lining when others don’t. You just can’t help but cheer people on with enthusiasm.

You’re quick to greet people with a smile, laugh easily, and love to have fun. For you, being the never-ending optimist, spreading joy, hope, and happiness is what energizes you. Having people around you that get that and share that is very important to you.

You Rock!

You often wake up filled with energy and excitement and ready to embrace the day. While people need what you have, they don’t always want it. They may even call you naive. Please know that it’s not about you in these cases; it’s more often about the person speaking the words.

Positivity® is my #2 theme, and it took me many years to get that what I contributed to others was a gift. I’ve always known that I tend to leave people feeling better about themselves, and it wasn’t until I lost my mojo that I realized what a gift it is to receive that for myself. Thankfully I have other happy people in my life.

You’re constantly judged for being happy

To me, happiness is a priority; I pick up the energy of people’s vibes, know what’s going on around me, and focus on what CAN be created.

When I’m happy, I spread that joyful energy, and that energy is my key to inspiration, creativity, and freedom. Often others get inspired by this too.

Remember when you were young and carefree? I’m proud to have kept my inner playful child alive. That memory still contributes to my life. Having a playful dog also helps; it’s a reminder of who I am in many ways. I’m still curious and love to play, laugh, and try new things.

I’ll Google funny clips on YouTube if I need a laugh or call a friend if I need a mood boost. I love spreading inspirational or laugh-out-loud clips that people tend to enjoy.

Spreading good vibes

We all have a choice on how we choose to respond to everything in life. I bring my ability to see possibilities for others into my coaching and friendships.

Others, like Branden Harvey, use it to spread Good News; check him out! Another great organization is, where you can help people get running water into their villages. Things like this energize me!

We have close to 8 billion experiences on this planet. There’s a lot of great stuff being created every day, so why not engage in activities that inspire you?

No matter what you choose—know that you’re enough. Being naturally happy and playful and sharing that energy is a gift others pay to experience.

Spread that light energy and healing laughter. Our planet needs you.
