The Hidden Value of Knowing YOUR Weakness

“Knowing Your Own Strengths and Weaknesses Increases Your Chances of Professional Success.

 

One important building block for professional success is an awareness of your own strengths and weaknesses – in other words, being self-aware.

Since things like having vague goals, lacking ambition, procrastinating and lacking resolve are common reasons for failure, self-awareness can help to constructively take action against these weaknesses – or at least to balance them out with your strengths.

In order to be able to figure out exactly what your strengths and weaknesses are, it’s advisable to perform a thorough and honest self-analysis.

Don’t worry – this doesn’t require going to a psychologist.

It’s more than enough if you go through a checklist of questions, which should include:

-Have I achieved my aim for this year?

-Was I always friendly, courteous and cooperative?

-Did I make all decisions promptly and firmly?

Then you should compare your subjective self-analysis with somebody else’s objective evaluation of you.

This works best when you sit down with a person who knows you really well to openly and honestly discuss your strengths and weaknesses
