There is tremendous value in finding out what you are good at. Just the act of naming a strength in someone can amplify it. And our strengths are like muscles - the more we use them, the more they grow.

Do you know your top strengths?

Here's a great place to start: take this (free) VIA strengths survey. It's a short set of questions concocted by social scientists, designed to quickly identify the things that you're best at. It takes around fifteen minutes to complete - and in our experience, it's simple, fun and surprisingly accurate.

Here's a short introduction to the VIA survey:

Which five strengths do you identify with most? These are your signature strengths. How are you using them at the moment? Where do you use them most? How could you use each of them more?

Once you've completed the survey, share your top 5 strengths and tag us on facebook, instagram or twitter @storeforthemind. You'll be entered into our competition to win your very own set of Character Strengths Pencils, with a detailed guide to help you build on your strengths and use them daily.
