What’s your Strength? & Weakness?

Are you using your strengths or your weaknesses ???

Start a list Identifying your strengths and weaknesses.
To implement the above process in your own life, you’re going to need to build your awareness of your strengths.  Try starting with a list of strengths and weaknesses.  Write them down in separate columns, and then draws some arrows from the strengths to the weaknesses where you think you could potentially apply a strength to a weakness.  You don’t need to be 100% sure how you’re going to do it just yet. Go with your gut of what you think might be applicable.

For the weaknesses,  focus on things that are actually getting in your way and that you have some motivation to change.  For example, they could be related to negotiating, finances, relationships, or health behaviors.
The types of strengths that can be good are
being good at researching information
resourcefulness, persistence, conscientiousness
planning for and overcoming obstacles
finding workarounds for problems, decency / following the “do unto others” principle
ability to follow instructions, ability to synthesize information
being calm and emotionally, patience

We all have strengths and weaknesses. Being reminded of our weaknesses is unpleasant. Therefore, we learn to avoid tasks that require skills that we think of as weaknesses. This avoidance can cause problems and hold you back.

Know your strengths to be more effective and successful in life.
