Discover your Strengths! Feb 8 Meeting Recap

Toastmaster Be carried out the meeting with the theme focused on strengths.  It starts by discovering our own strengths, which we did by examining Richard and Sarah‘s top 3 strengths.  For Sarah, it was about wooing, having command and being responsible of course.  We based this on strength finders:  http://www.strengthstest.com/strengths-finder-themes

Our three speakers, Bina, Alex and James explored strengths in different angles. Both Bina and Alex were doing their Ice breakers.

Bina spoke about her recent discovery of herself as an extrovert, after living most of her life as a misdiagnosed introvert. Opening herself to new experiences and people, she is embracing her new true self.  It was exciting her to speak as she stood proudly, smiling and radiantly in own her skin.

Then, Alex, showed us how to us to say yes to a zestful life.  She certainty does not do things half way, already a contestant and speaking on her first official meeting.

Lastly, James shared an ultimate secret to success, which is capitalizing on our strengths and building alliances with others.  This is called the mastermind (a term coined by Napoleon Hill).

We also inducted three new members.  Perhaps they know a secret or two about strengthening themselves (i.e. joining toastmaster?).

After our break, Wes led our table topics session with energetic and thought provoking questions.  Congrats Devin for being our table topics winner!

Connecting and summarizing it all: when we discover our strengths, mastermind with others, and say yes to your dreams, we can lead a zestful life!
