1 min readYour Weaknesses are Irrelevant

by Guy Gage | October 11, 2015 | Business

I’ve spent a good bit of my career training and coaching people like you to become high performers. As a result, I’ve come to realize that there is not one way, but many ways to be successful. What works for some won’t work for others. If you’re not successful one way, there are others to try. What is not acceptable is to simply fold up your tent and admit that it’s not for you. It IS for you to do and you’ve got to find your own way to do it.

Weaknesses are only important when related to how you do something. Since you can’t achieve success a certain way, don’t assume that you are unable to get the desired results. All it really means is that you can’t get them the way you’ve been pursuing. What about all the other ways?

Whether it’s bringing in new business, leading a team, or making clients love you, these results are essential to your success. But just because you are less successful doing it the same way as others have does not mean you are unable. It just means you haven’t found how to do it your way.

Are you reserved? Who cares? Did you know that an interested introvert is more effective than an interesting extrovert?

Are you uncomfortable in large social settings? So what? Did you know that investing in your referral network is more valuable?

Do you struggle with the gift of gab? Not a problem. Your clients LOVE you when you anticipate, communicate and deliver.

In the end, you’ve got to get past the idea that your lack of achievement is a result of some deficit you have. Lead with your strengths and enjoy your success…and your career.

You CAN succeed. You must succeed.
