Identiying Your Greatest Strength/Challenging Your Greatest Weakness

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

This looks like a strong rope. I like to visualize things I'm thinking about and this works just fine. I want you to think about whatever comes to mind related to how are you strong like this rope. Now take a piece of paper or open your word document and list the things your thinking of now.

I'm strong like a rope because I'm:

Now think about what gets in  your way. What causes weakness in your life? I know for me the list begins with:
Stress Issues

We all have strengths and weaknesses. The problem blooms though when we stop being aware of these issues and allow them to take over our daily routine.  If you are facing an ordeal, like climbing your own personal rock wall then some of these things  may help:


If you live in awareness then you will realize when you are off course.
Take time to re-focus your thoughts. This may come in the form of connecting with God in prayer and in the Word.


We frequently hold our breath or don't breath deeply when we're stressed out or experiencing anxiety.
B-R-E-A-T-H-E. Take a few minutes to monitor your breathing.

Thought Stopping

Where are your thoughts taking you? If you are up against a deadline at work, at home, or on your novel it's imperative that you stay positive. If you follow negative thoughts into a dark alley of despair you will become trapped in that alley. On the other hand, if you follow your thoughts into an open airy field full of wildflowers and blue sky you may just find yourself thinking you can succeed. We really are what we think.

So what's one or more of your strengths? Weakness? How do you  challenge your weakness? How do you capitalize on your strengths? Is there something you've learned along the way that has brought you through a difficult time?


  1. We share weaknesses! I definitely have the same struggles with perfectionism.

    And I love your photo and metaphor about the field of wildflowers. I don't think I've heard anyone put it better.

  2. Thanks Rosslyn. The perfectionism thing is dangerous. Focus on that open airy field of wildflowers.:) Glad you like it. Have an awesome day, kiddo!
