“Reframing your weaknesses”

Business author Greg McKeown, hosts a podcast called The Essentialist. On a recent episode he unpacked this intriguing consideration, “what if our weaknesses are just one nudge away from being our strengths?”

“We live in a world that assumes strengths and weaknesses are polar opposites on a continuum.

But what if that’s wrong?

What if your strengths and weaknesses are more like a circle where your greatest weaknesses are, in fact, one click of the dial from becoming your strengths?

Greg spoke with Nate Checketts, the CEO of Rhone, and learned how Nate turned something he always thought was a weakness, a high degree of sensitivity to fabrics and contrasting clothing, into a strength that has helped him launch a successful company!

The following are the author’s suggestions for how can you rapidly turn your weaknesses into strengths.

“1) Admit you have a weakness.

You can’t turn it into something new if you don’t admit it’s there in the first place.

2) Look under the surface.

Don’t beat yourself up, ever, for your weaknesses. Instead, ask, “What strength is hidden within this weakness that’s just out of sight?”

3) Make it your servant.

Weaknesses make poor masters but great servants. Instead of feeling shame about your weaknesses, ask, “How can this weakness be used to serve others?”

Remember: a person who can turn a negative into a positive can never be defeated.”

What “weaknesses” do you need to reframe?

Naked Man Moleskin:

Thanks to the 4 men who came out to get better today!  I know most of us were still feeling the aftereffects of Bone Spurs recent leg day burner. Hopefully getting out and working those tight muscles was helpful and will provide momentum for the week ahead.

Thank you @Happy Camper for having my 6!
