Strengths Use Plan
People who know their strengths and use them frequently tend to have higher self-esteem, better
moods, and less stress. Learning to use strengths is something anyone can achieve.
In this activity, you will create a plan to use your strengths every day, for one week. You may use your
strengths in either new or familiar ways. The key is to use your strengths intentionally and
purposefully, rather than as part of habit or routine.
Step 1: Select three of your greatest strengths, or write your own.
Honesty Love Kindness
Leadership Forgiveness Humility Self-Control
Optimism Humor Spirituality Flexibility
Step 2: For the next week, write a brief plan for using your chosen strengths.
Day Strength Plan
Kindness I will bring in breakfast for the office.
After dinner, I will drive to a new part of town and
go for a walk.
I will watch a documentary with my friend and
discuss it afterward.
