6 ways to identify your strengths
We often compare ourselves with others around us , and feel superior or inferior to them based on our strengths and our weaknesses. A lot of us tend to focus more on what we are not good at, that is, our weaknesses. As a result , we find ourselves inhibited when we take on new challenges
On the contrary, a very few of us think or know about what we are actually good at, that is, our strengths. While it is good to be aware of our weaknesses, it is equally important to know our strengths and focus on them for our self development and personal growth. Focusing on our strengths helps us seek opportunities, while focusing on our weaknesses help us seek problems. There’s no doubt about the fact that if we understand our strengths, it will help us grow more, focus and aim higher.
