A friend of mine wrote about her strengths recently and lamented that sometimes they become a problem. My Dad used to say that your biggest strength is your greatest weakness. It took me a while to understand, but I now recognize the wisdom in what he said.
We all have gifts - unique gifts to share with the world. Some people are great communicators. Some people have energy and can get things done. Some people are visionaries that have world transforming ideas. Some people have the gift of empathy and are great listeners. Some people are strong.
But regardless of the gift, for most of us, our strength is often our greatest weakness if we do not learn how to expand ourselves beyond our strengths or how to control the use of our gift. Here are some example of what I am talking about:
If you like to control everything, learn to delegate and trust others.
If you listen well but don't talk much - try expressing yourself.
If you are a visionary, couple your vision with concrete plans. Learn to not only see the future but to bring it to pass.
If you are a great organizer, you're too inflexible. Learn to relax. You don't have to control everything.
If you are a great talker, remember to listen. You'll learn a lot.
Take your gifts. Give them to the world, but remember to expand and change. You can do more than you think if you develop beyond your natural strength, learn balance, and learn to see the gifts in others.
