What is Your Greatest Weakness?
What do you consider to be your biggest weakness? When you have identified a weakness in your life, you have uncovered a powerful path for self improvement.
Think about it. If you work on the things at which you are already skilled, you can make marginal improvements in your performance. Yet, when you put your efforts into overcoming your particular weakness, the results can be dramatic.
Consider a salesperson who is knowledgeable about the products, very good with people, a great listener, excellent negotiator and skilled at closing the sale, but who has trouble managing time and is always late for appointments. That one weakness, poor time management, can severely restrict the effectiveness of all of his other strengths. However, if he works to improve his one weakness, time management skills, it can make a huge positive difference in his overall performance.
Can you identify a weakness in your life that is holding you back and preventing all of your strengths from showing through? The positive payoff from working to overcome that weakness can be worth many times the effort involved. You have something special. You have GREATNESS within you!
