Why is it the norm to point out and focus on WEAKNESSES? Sure, we need to identify them and work to strengthen them, but why do we not put enough focus on our STRENGTHS, and leading with those?!
List all your strengths, and why you enjoy doing them. And then, identify your hidden ones by looking at patterns or behaviors that overlap.
Focus more on what you can do and work towards getting better at what you can’t, but don’t gloss over your strengths!
BOOM. That’s the way to do it!
I applaud the people who study their craft. Who practice, relentlessly, to get better at it. The people who accept they may be GOOD at it but can always be BETTER. The people who LISTEN to valuable advice given to them, and step back, and can ACKNOWLEDGE when they need to do some work.
The people who are done growing, done learning… I can only shake my head. I can’t imagine being someone so arrogant that I couldn’t look beyond where I am to where I could go. I’m so grateful I’m not.
Stay open minded. Stay grounded. Stay hungry for learning. There is truly ALWAYS more to learn, always.
