E - Engagement: How strongly to you feel engaged with people, experiences, work or activities. Developing and using our strengths.
R - Relationships: The strength and quality of relationships that make you feel good and satisfied. Authentic and energizing connections.
M - Meaning: How you find a sense of meaning or purpose in your life and feel a sense of fulfillment in life. A sense of being connected to something larger than ourselves.
A - Accomplishment: Feeling a sense of pride in ones achievements and contributions. The belief and ability to do the things that matter to us most.
