A lot of research has been done in the science of strengths and weaknesses. Most research tells us that we need to stay in our strength zones.
And I’m a strong believer that we see the greatest results when we apply our strengths to what we’re doing.
However, I’ve come to believe that we’re doing a disservice when we dismiss our weaknesses.
Why Strengths Are Great
Our strengths are the areas in our lives that we rock at. These are things like being a visionary, including others in what you do, or in a desire to achieve goals.
By focusing on these strengths, we’re able to play to our natural talents. We’re able to do what we were created for.
We also feel great when we are working in our strengths.
These feelings make us want to focus on our strengths all the time. But this is a mistake.
