Awareness

The first step to transcending a particular weakness in your life is to become more aware of it. As your familiarity with the weakness grows, your options for getting beyond it will increase as well.

The more accurate the diagnosis, the more successfully a doctor can treat the disease. The better you understand the problem, the more resources you’ll find to solve it.

Anyone who honestly criticizes you is doing you a favor, even if that’s not what was intended. Be thankful for the criticism, because it will help you see where your efforts can be most effective.

Being positive does not mean ignoring the negative or denying your limitations. Living positively very often involves finding a way to get beyond those limitations that most fervently hold you back.

For when you eliminate the weaknesses, your strengths can truly run free. Become aware of your weaknesses, and in so doing you’ll find powerful new ways to be strong.
