weakness or strength?

Why not admit that we have a weakness? I always ask myself why should I not have a right to be weak. But while I am telling me about not always being strong, I preach that my weaknesses do not have to make me weak. We're all different, with unique perspectives and abilities. Weakness in one area is a good sign of strength somewhere else. That is what the game is all about.

Someone who is "lazy", and unwilling to put forth any more effort than is absolutely necessary, could be very skilled at determining the most efficient way to get things done. Someone who is shy and afraid to speak up, could be a very effective and observant listener. Someone who has difficulty with remembering details, could be extremely skilled at seeing the big picture.

You've managed to get this far along in life, in spite of your weaknesses, whatever they may be. Consider the strengths you've developed to compensate for them. When you think about it that way, you see that your weaknesses have actually been a catalyst for personal growth.

That's not to say that you should sit back and accept your weaknesses. Areas of weakness offer the greatest potential for overall improvement in your performance. If you put all your effort into improving the areas where you're already strong, you'll only make incremental improvements. However, when you work to overcome your most limiting weaknesses, the results can be dramatic.

Yes, you have weaknesses. We all do. Yet even those weak areas offer the opportunity to find new strength.
