For any helping professional, it is important to remember these 6 words; strengths, passion, dreams, love, listen and leap.
Know your own strengths as a professional and know or learn the strengths of your clients.
Be passionate about your work.
Follow your dreams both professionally and personally.
Love what you do.
Listen to what your clients are saying, to what your colleagues are saying, to what is going on around you and be willing to be a change agent.
We all must take leaps in life both professionally and personally; there is no growth otherwise.
*In honor of social work month (all of March) I encourage others to do the above.
