Discover The Strengths In You to Achieve Great Goals

Oct 26, 2007
I heard and experienced myself where people would advise me to focus a lot on my weaknesses to develop myself further. Through such process, I had faced disappointments. I took responsibility for the decision on building such focus too much but through the process, I learn greatly that one can achieve excellence and ultimately reach his goal better if the individual understand his strengths better and focus on it consistently.

There are a couple of methods involved in achieving a dream goal through strength building and focus. Firstly, the individual clearly needs to understand his strengths. He has to dig deep in himself and find out what are his strengths. One has to be clear about his strength clearly to achieve great goals. Once he understand his strengths, create a plan, focus and act consistently to build on those strengths. The act can be in small steps but it can lead one to reach great achievements through consistency.

Let's take an example of an individual who is naturally soft spoken and been told by others to change himself to be a louder individual. In brief, it means he must change not to be the person he is. He might find himself in uncomfortable positions and end up in frustrations not being himself. How should he react to focus and build on his strength? Let's see.

Firstly, he should take a step back and react to the feedback positively. In good strides, he must realize that he is unique in his own way. Everyone is special in their own ways. He must find out why and what is so special about himself. Next, he must work greatly towards understanding that his soft spoken approach can be his greatest strength.

For example, he can build a list of values that he can learn from other successful people and apply it consistently such as keep learning spirits high, never give up, make it a point to step out of comfort zone such as public speaking, learning to network with people to develop on his strength better.

Next, he needs to find the avenue to apply it. For example, starting a part time business such as home business, networking and communicating with people from all walks of life or participating in events that involved large audiences are great avenues that he can participate to develop his strengths.

He should also make it point to find and learn from a mentor in the different areas to guide him along. For example, in public speaking, get a mentor to guide in organizing his speech and practice the speech rehearsals with the mentor. He must be able to lower down his ego to accept criticisms and feedback from his mentor. He must also be a willing listener and learner to continue learning and understand that learning never stops. "Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience." - Denis Waitley . I believed that with a simple, concrete and effective plan,the individual who builds and develops his strength consistently and apply it to great use can achieve great dreams and goals in life.
