Overcoming Weaknesses - Why Is It Important?

“Try to look at your weakness and convert it into your strength. That's success.”

One of the most important and positive signs of being a successful person is discovering weaknesses and giving a thought as to how to overcome them, that in turn, could pave the ways for self development.

It involves minimizing flaws and faults and emphasizing strengths and positive aspects of personality. It’s a fact that everyone must be in accord with that every individual as a person is endowed with some natural strengths and weaknesses and the one who recognizes this is wise. By doing so, one can not only lead oneself in the direction of attaining desired results, but also live

life satisfyingly and successfully; whereas those who don’t pay attention to their fallibility fall in disgrace and face dismays.

Indeed, there is a mixture of virtues and vices in every person, but the right is the one who’s vigilant at all times about one’s deeds and actions, while discriminating good deeds and bad deeds, as he knows best it’s the function of wisdom. He believes that the good deeds results in inner peace and satisfaction, while evil deeds lead nowhere but to destruction.

The qualities of being a good person include, moral excellence, patience, righteousness, benignity and modesty, courage and compassion. Some bad qualities are: inability to understand the feelings of others, being proud, selfishness, rudeness or impoliteness etc. In this way, having good qualities is holding strengths by which one can succeed in life, on the contrary,

bad qualities do not at all lead to good results. It is therefore overcoming the weaknesses is the greatest thing one can do to have impressive achievements in life and to make it as wanted.

Good and bad qualities may be more than those mentioned above, one can explore many ways to discover and overcome, rather, turning them to strengths if they are weaknesses and strengthen more if they are strengths. In any case, it must be borne in mind that there is a need for making self assessment constantly so as to pass life successfully.

Overcoming weaknesses is a door to success, as it not only allows one to make the areas of strengths stronger but also aids in changing the weaknesses into strengths, while it helps to unlock one’s potential, so that it may be used to its fullest making one a successful person in every aspect of life.
