Sustained Success
Member Workbook pg. 8

 Each strength creates a need to express its
  opposite strength.
 The two opposite strengths support and feed
  each other.
 Sustained success is a process in which the
  two opposite strengths interact with one
  another.

   Everyone has both strengths
   Each strength is positive in nature

   Sustained success comes from the
    interaction of opposite strengths
