A natural ability or something you love doing
Any task you find difficult or dislike doing
My attempt to create something out of weakness that “messed up” inspired this article as a reminder to know your strengths, your weaknesses, what you love doing and to bridge the gap through support.
In the past I would have had a major meltdown, yet through personal experiences of chaos, when you remain calm, it shifts your experience as well as the outcome. That being said, I allowed myself a moment to freak out, took a few breaths, knew it would be ok and let it pass. I stopped what I was doing, knew it was a weakness and moved back to my strength – creating this article.
Don’t be afraid to get real with what your weaknesses are
Through recognising your weaknesses, you become empowered, knowing it’s simply not your thing. Life becomes effortless as you focus on what lights you up and can get support in the things you don’t like doing. We aren’t meant to do this alone, we were born into community, so lets support each other to grow and thrive!
Imagine a life where you do only what you love, with your network complimenting your weaknesses by doing what they love. It becomes harmonious as we all have a part to play – and you play a vital part in the orchestra. It’s time to recognise that and harness your abilities. Stop trying to be a sheep, when your essence is a wolf. You can’t compare the two, each has it’s own strengths as well as it’s weaknesses.
Stop comparing yourself to others around you and embrace who you are
- List your strengths [and what lights you up]
- List your weaknesses
- Who in my life could support my weaknesses and in exchange, support their strengths
- What purpose am I here to fulfil?
I challenge you to get real with what your weaknesses are and ask for support. It’s a beautiful thing when you can support someone, receive that support in return and watch each other blossom.
Stick to what you do best and leave the rest
Enjoy this exercise, for the world is missing what you are ready to give. I’d love to hear how you went and what inspired you.
