12 Apr Why We Have to Improve Our Weaknesses
How often do you attack your weaknesses?
I suck at deadlifts.
It’s been a weakness of mine for years.
I built a decent strength base years ago but never fully attacked it as I do squatting.
But I need to.
And so do you. (Ok, maybe not deadlifts, but your weakness).
Our weaknesses, be it…
- sales calls
- making YouTube videos
- having tough conversations with your spouse
- time blocking
- even practicing gratitude
…don’t just get better on their own.
They get better with reps.
Many people stick their heads in the sand like an ostrich and wish it would magically get better or disappear.
As if we suddenly wake up one day more confident and more capable at doing the thing which we avoid doing.
Winners know that the only way to turn a weakness into a strength is through intentional reps.
Heck, forget a strength. The only way to turn a weakness into something that isn’t a liability is through intentional actions.
Spend 30 minutes this week training that weakness. That’s just SIX MINUTES a workday!
Put time in your calendar (and your phone) to work on what ails you.
Focus on improvement – not perfection. You don’t have to be great at something to start doing it…
…but you do have to start doing it if you one day want to be better at it!
You don’t have to turn your weakness into your greatest asset but if you want to build a competitive edge, make sure you turn it into something that is stronger than an Achilles Heel.
Make time this week to turn that weakness into something that gives you an advantage.
