It’s all well and good to talk about your strengths, but every coin has two sides.
The purpose of evaluating your weaknesses isn’t to induce misery or frustration. Really.
But it can prove to be a very eye-opening experience. And it opens the door for a great deal of awareness and improvement.
Don’t shy away from weaknesses. Instead:
- look at things objectively
- recognize and admit weaknesses
- make conscious decisions on what to do about them
In business partnerships, find complimentary partners with complimentary skill sets. Two of me would be frightening in any sense whatsoever; so two of me certainly wouldn’t work as business partners.
And they say “opposites attract” when it comes to love…maybe it’s more a question of finding someone with dissimilar weaknesses (or someone who doesn’t mind your weaknesses, or finds them cute and quirky…)
Of course, you can tackle weaknesses and turn them into strengths. You can’t sit around and wait for others to do that for you.
Once you really understand your weaknesses there are many ways to flip ’em into strengths. Figuring them out first, understanding them and getting inspired to change them will make all the difference in the world.[tags]strengths, weaknesses, characteristics, personal development[/tags]
