No one is perfect; we all have our weaknesses. But, the way we address our weak spots can make all the difference.
The first step is assessing your weakness. This is where you want to think of quick solutions. Do you have a bad memory? Maybe try writing everything down. Or, are you messy? Vow to become organized. These all seem like easy solutions but before you can put these to work you need to address the “why”. Why do you have bad hand writing? Why are you messy? Until you reveal they “why” you will never be able to get out of the cycle of your bad habits.
Once you have the why you can now use this knowledge and turn your weakness into a strength. Let’s say you have discovered you are messy because you get sidetracked easily and don’t have the correct organizational tools. This will take you to your final step, using the knowledge of why to turn your weakness into a strength.
Camson goes on to say that in this last step you now have 2 choices; “You can either become hyper-vigilant about your weaknesses and thus make that your strength, or look at the flip side of your weakness as a strength in and of itself.”
