Stronger through every weakness

You have your weaknesses, as does every person. Make sure each weakness serves as a challenge to become better, not as an excuse to fail.

Let each weakness prompt you to refine, control, improve your behavior. Don’t ever allow any of them to justify negative behavior.

Choose never to see yourself as a victim of your weaknesses or difficulties or your unique situation. Though the burden is very real, it does not have to define you or compromise your integrity.

Some weaknesses you can work your way out of, and some you cannot. Yet what you can always do is build within yourself enough strength to more than offset each weakness.

No one is perfect, circumstances are rarely ideal, and difficulties always appear. Even so, with all the imperfections, there are plenty of good, valuable, beautiful things you can do.

Identify your weaknesses, work on them, but don’t let them make you any less than the best you can be. Choose instead to rise to their challenge, and to grow stronger through every weakness.
