Me personally, I know exactly what my strengths and weaknesses are. I believe it’s imperative to know these things if you want to move forward in a positive and productive direction. Like I always say, life is about balance. You can’t have good without bad.
So what do we do about them? 1. We have to be fair in our judgement of ourselves and identify what our weaknesses are. 2. Ask ourselves, are they something we can change and if so are we really ready to change them? 3. Do I need help in changing them?
We can have the very best of intentions in the world but if we don’t follow them through with an action, then it’s pointless. Actions speak louder than words and we all know that.
On the other hand it’s also okay to not be ready for change. There’s nothing wrong with that because we can only change when the time is right for us. After all, it is our life and we’re the only ones who have to live it.
But if we are ready, change, ever lasting change generally doesn’t come easily. Nothing ever worth having in life does so we have to make sure we’re well and truly ready for the challenges ahead. Because there will be, and many of them.
For me that’s now. I’ve already identified what my biggest weaknesses are that are holding me back from achieving my goals. So the next step is finding the right help to get started until I’m confident and strong enough to go it alone. By that I mean mentally, not physically. I have no problem in asking for help in whatever form is needed. I’m not super woman and some times in life we need help to get where we’re going in life, now is one of those times.
So don’t be afraid of your weaknesses and change. Facing them, confronting them and embracing them can be very rewarding. I for one am about to find out.
