What if you turn things around and focus on your strengths instead. The bitter truth is, you may never overcome your weaknesses but you could make significant changes to how you live and work if you focus on what you are good at. The key here is that you don’t have to change who you are; you have to become more of who you are. Know your weaknesses and accept them: embrace your fears, faults and uncertainties. Start confronting the painful and brutal truth about yourself.
