Many people let their real or imagined weaknesses stop them from reaching their goals in life. What you perceive as a weakness may be an opportunity to develop a relationship with someone who is gifted in that area. Every person that you see standing on top got there with the help of others, the idea of the “self made man” is a myth and if you see a leader without support you are looking at a fool waiting for something bad to happen.
Before me and my wife got married we had a vision meeting where we both brought our written plans for our lives to make sure that we were both going in the same direction. What that meeting revealed was 2 people who were on a path going in the same direction. Now what I mean by that is we were both in school to achieve our life goals, also most of our time energy and money was going towards taking us in that direction. If you meet someone who claims to want something and is not actively putting their money and time where their mouth is, that person is a sucker. Beware of suckers because they are sent from hell to waste your time and they will suck up your time, energy, and money.
So today I’m sitting in my nice and clean office because I staff my weakness and hired a cleaning lady to help a brother out. She is gifted in this area and did an excellent job, so now I can sit in a clean orderly space and be creative and productive. I could have cleaned the office myself but because I’m not gifted in that area it was not a good investment of my time. Time is your most precious asset and what you do with it will determine your destiny. How much time do you think the President spends dusting the oval office? Is it because he is too good to do it or is it because his time can be better spent somewhere else?
Do you want a great life? Then spend most of your time cultivating your strengths and staff your weaknesses….
