S:0016 Principle: Strengthen Your Strengths, Not Your Weaknesses

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

 

1. Whatever tasks/jobs you struggle with are better abandoned, delegated, outsourced or automated.

2. If there is no one that you can delegate to, then this task/project should probably not be in your life.

3. It’s natural to think you should strengthen your weaknesses, but you have better things to do in life.

4. We get energy from the friction caused by trying hard to do things we should do, yet struggle with.

5. Use Quicken/CheckFree or some other system or service to handle your bills/paperwork. Order it today!

6. Often, you have to give up working on your weaknesses in order to discover your gift. It’s a test.

7. By taking the focus off your weaknesses, you develop a reserve of time, space and self-esteem.

8. When relating to others, focus only on their strengths and ask them to delegate their weaknesses.

9. We are all disabled in certain areas; it’s not personal, but it is real and it’s expensive to act as if we’re not.

10. God made you perfectly. Show a little trust in the present.
