What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

What’s stopping you?

Your weaknesses represent your greatest potential for improvement. Is there something that keeps holding you back? Improving that one thing, could make everything else you do, vastly more effective.

Remember, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. If one or two things are holding you back, it doesn’t matter how well developed you are in other areas -- you’re still held back. One of the best uses of your strengths, is to work on overcoming your weaknesses.

All too often we use our strengths to compensate for our weaknesses. Most people manage to get by, by doing this. Just think, though, what would happen if instead, you were able to completely overcome the weaknesses, once and for all. Then, instead of fighting against your own weakness, you could fully apply your strengths toward success and accomplishment.

Don’t be your own worst enemy. Acknowledge your weaknesses, and get over them.

— Ralph Marston
