Some great advice for all of us:

 

Original content by Grant Schneider

It really sounds too simple that you will be successful by doing what you do best!

Let me add that this also applies to working on developing your natural talents.  So that even if you are not doing it well now, you have the talent to hit it out of the park.  It just takes work and practice.

My concern is for people who keep beating themselves up to improve weaknesses.  For instance, if you want to become a star NBA player but you are 5 foot tall you may want to direct your energy in another direction.

Even if you attempt to do it you will never be fully satisfied, and you will be in a constant state of stress. But isn’t that what many of us try to do?   When your child comes home from school with his or her report card and it shows, for example, an A in math, B’s in history and science, and a C in English, what is your response?

That’s right. Most people will talk to their child about raising the grade in English. But what if your child might have a real talent in math? He or she might become a great math genius. But it might never be realized because time was spent dwelling on weakness rather than leveraging strengths.

To put it another way, we have talents and non-talents. We can create strengths by leveraging our talents. When we spend time doing this we are insuring our success and we are relaxed and enjoy what we are doing. We create our weaknesses by depending on non-talents. Here is an example.

Let’s say that you have non-talent for writing reports, attention to detail, and perfection. You would rather be working with people. If your role requires you to work with details, you are going to struggle and if you are a business owner you would do better to hire someone to take care of those details. If you have a talent for big picture 30-thousand-foot strategic thinking, where you plan and organize you will be infinitely more successful in your job or your business if you leverage that talent to maximize results. Do you know what your talents are?

One way to make sure that you are leveraging your talents is by taking a personal assessment tool. I use one but there are others out there. But whether you do this or not you will see great improvement in performance and satisfaction by understanding your attitudes, your behaviors, and, in short, your genius. This awareness will also allow you to better understand how people see you and help you improve your relationships and dealings with others. As you achieve a better understanding of your strengths, it is important to realize that no matter how developed you are in these areas, there is always room for improvement. Further developing your strengths, and using them more often, will make them even more valuable and help you be more successful.
