Inspiring Purpose


1. What to do...

If you are struggling to identify your strengths, why not take the VIA survey?

During WWI, nurses and medical orderlies were called upon to show this quality to the wounded. Take a look at the adjectives in the box and choose the one that you are best at. Write a short statement in the middle box of your poster to explain your choice. In the right box explain your choice of the quality you most need to work on.

1. Look at the qualities in the box, rank these in the order that best describe you, with No. 1 being your strongest quality.
2. Select the quality you ranked No. 1 and write a short statement that explains the quality that best describes you. Provide an example of how you display it in everyday life.
3. Select the quality you most need to work on and write a short statement that explains the quality. Provide an example of what you can do to work on improving that quality in everyday life.
