Fulfillment: That elusive feeling of completeness and meaningful contribution, rolled into one.
It’s what we intuitively seek….
and feel so empty without.
What if we could strongly influence having that experience more often?
Maybe have that feeling from most of what we do?
How different would life be? How much more engaged and vital would we feel?
How would our appreciation of our own value change?
Enter a Visionary: Dr. Donald O. Clifton
About sixty years ago the chairman of Gallup®, Inc., a world respected polling and statistical analysis company, began to focus his research on identifying people’s strengths vs their weaknesses. His name was Dr. Donald O. Clifton. He wondered:
If people could learn to identify their strengths and then build upon them, rather than working to improve their weaknesses, would they be more satisfied with their work and more successful in their lives? According to Clifton’s/Gallup®’s research:
“People who do focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs. They are more productive too, both individually and in teams. And they are more than three times as likely to say they have an excellent quality of life.” Gallup®
So why do so few of us pursue this way of living, even if it feels so intuitively “right?”
Clifton’s research discovered most people don’t know what their strengths are and therefore frequently miss the opportunity to leverage them to their benefit.
But how do we quickly discover our real strengths?
Unfortunately, most of us only discover our natural strengths by “accident.”
Life presents a situation, we’re called to respond, and we do the best we can to meet the challenge. Sometimes in the process, we unearth one of our strengths and a light goes off inside us. We sense that what we just did felt powerful and connected.
We were in the “flow,” and time seemed to pass unknowingly. But it could take a lifetime of “accidental” discoveries to uncover only a few of our natural strengths and maybe not our more powerful ones.
Accelerate The Process
To speed up that discovery, Gallup introduced the first “StrengthsFinder®” assessment to the public in 2001. It was based on fifty years of Dr. Clifton’s work helping professionals.
Six years later, analyzing the collected data from millions of participants , an advanced, even more personalized assessment was created – StrengthsFinder® 2.0.
Very Important Note: We all like to save money. I often buy a good condition used book for that reason. However, the code in the back of the StrengthsFinder 2.0 book is a ONE Time access code. So be sure to buy a never previously owned version for this specific book or you may not be able to access the most important reason to purchase it, the StrengthsFinder 2.0 Online Assessment. PG
Written by his grandson and dedicated student, Tom Rath, this refined assessment and it’s companion book, now provides an even more specific level of personally relevant results.
This means that even if two individuals have the same major category strengths, they will have variations within the detail presented, contoured to their specific responses. The results also include valuable perspectives on how to put those natural strengths into action.
Becoming clear on what our strengths are and then choosing what we do each day around using them, creates a “shortcut” to fulfillment. The StrengthsFinder® 2.0 can help you do that.
When we link what we are “doing,” with what we have a natural ability to do best, that elusive feeling of fulfillment begins to show up more often.
If you feel like what you’re doing, is out of harmony with what your gut says you “should” be doing,
Use this powerful “shortcut” as a foundation to start building a successful, meaningful life you love.

What the StrengthsFinder® 2.0 Assessment Is Not:
Many of us are likely to have taken some type of generalized “personality” test when we were in school…
Because they said we had to.
And when they gave us the results, we just as likely said “interesting, but so what.”
At best, we were presented with several categories of general job types that seem to “fit” us.
More often it felt like we just had our life pigeon-holed, a kind of “dreams stealer” before we even got started. That’s not what StrengthsFinder® 2.0 is about.
The StrengthsFinder® 2.0 acts more as a “dream catcher,” because it focuses us on opening up new possibilities from the talents we were already born with.
It provides a core perspective, a powerful place to stand for creating a miraculous life. A life filled with greater success and satisfaction… and more of that normally elusive feeling of Fulfillment.
It’s as close as we get to a look at our own “Owners Manual.”
We all come to points in our lives where we need direction…
where the disharmony we feel underneath what we’re doing, begins to outweigh whatever compensating value we’re gaining from it.
It’s your life, your journey. Grab the wheel and start traveling towards a life you love and nothing else.
FYI: The access code for the online assessment is inside the physical book or sent by email within 48 hrs. of purchasing the Kindle version.
