Whether in the gym or the workplace, we all have weaknesses we’d like to improve upon and ideally turn into some of our greatest strengths. In order to do this, it takes a certain resolve and determination that pushes you forward rather than dragging you back, focusing on the positive instead of the negative.
This type of transformation requires some forethought and a plan, and following some simple guidelines can help you tackle your weaknesses head-on.
Acknowledge Your Weaknesses
It can be very easy to ignore the things we’re not good at and work around our weaknesses rather than addressing them. The first step to taking them on, however, is to acknowledge that they exist and commit to making a change.
Turn to Someone Who Can Help
Seeking guidance from an expert is one great way to find out how to improve on our weaknesses. With physical weaknesses, a good coach knows how to work with you to improve your flexibility, strength, or balance, whatever you may need help with.
Be Prepared to Work
Working on your weaknesses requires an extra amount of work and attention; a change won’t come as easy as it does when you improve your strengths. You may even need to set aside some of your other goals in order to focus on what’s right in front of you.
Create Clear and Specific Goals
In order to be able to track how you’re doing towards turning your weaknesses into strengths, you need to set milestones that you can use to note your progress. Having an end goal in sight can help too, but you should always be working to improve, even after you’ve hit it.
