  • 1. Focus On Strengths Not WeaknessesAt job interviews we are often asked a question that, what actions we have taken in the past toimprove our weaknesses and we wonder why the interviewer can’t ask about ourachievements. The answer is simple; he wants to know how well we have learnt to focus on ourstrengths and not wasted time and energy on the weaknesses. People are often taught that inorder to be successful, they have to overcome those tasks and incapacities which they battle toperform. All historical, corporate, sports and science geniuses have focused merely on buildingtheir strong points. These masterminds are considered epitome of wishful thinking and not onlyhave they been triumphant in their fields, they have set an example that one should love toaccomplish his goals.You should have the nerve to follow your heart and instincts. If you really want to be thriving,your focus should not be on attempting to amend those areas which characterize ourweaknesses. It takes away from us, vigor, time and labors from chasing what should be ouractual goals. Life is quite short to be lived like someone else’s. If we observe noticeably thereare people around us who have shaped their lives based on the strengths they hold. The idealplace to begin a similar journey is to look into our own strengths and which will unquestionablylead us to a greater sense of success, contentment and delight in our lives.Once you locate the areas where you can attain the most, it becomes easier to pursue thoseareas and contribute positive energy on the whole. This enables you to face challenges despitehardships and do the work which you love doing and outshine others with. However it does notmean that you totally neglect your weaknesses. Explore the hidden skills within you, you neverknow it may be one of your weaknesses!
