Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Your Strength Grows From Your Weakness

Your Strength Grows From Your Weakness



Motivational Power Quote


Your Strength Grows From Your Weakness 


"Our strength grows

out of our Weakness."

Ralph Waldo Emerson, author


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Your strength grows from your weakness.  

A weakness remains a weakness until you decide to take action to change that weakness into your strength. 

Weakness can be looked at as a flaw.  View a weakness as an opportunity and a stepping stone to build a future strength.

Grow your weakness into your strength; by viewing the weakness as a temporary condition. You have the choice to keep the weakness or change it into your strength and an asset.   

Take your experience, look for positive change; make the commitment to turn that weakness into a personal strength.  

Turn your strength into your personal power.

Have to disagree..build on your strenght... if your a world class runner would you stop training for a gold medal to learn to be an average swimmer?

Our school system is built on the above ideal and we turn out generalist

I agree VB, and don't forget we often are least patient with those whose weaknesses may fall in an area of our own strength. The more we live the more we should learn to be patient with others.

Hey Lou - I have a view of setting weaknesses aside and focusing on what it is I want to create is the way to go. I don't pay attention to the weakness but rather focus on the strenth of who I truly am.

Great post.  I know I have learned a lot from falling on my face and wanting to improve the future.

We become stronger from dealing with our weakness as long as it's not an excuse to fail.  Great post.

Once again it's perspective.  It's "spin control" of a very positive nature.
