Weaknesses

Are You a Fire Type, a Water Type, or a Gas Type? …And I’m Not Talking About Pokémon.

fire-vs-water

Sharing weaknesses is never easy.

It leaves you feeling vulnerable and feeble and the ego absolutely hates that.

The ego only wants to talk about the strengths, the victories, the accomplishments, etc.

…But meaning and fulfillment don’t come from feeding the ego – they come from feeding the soul.

…And it’s time for some soul food.

One of my weaknesses is that I’m exceedingly anti-confrontational.

In order to avoid a conflict, either verbally or physically, I’ll shut down, close my mouth and try and separate myself from the situation as fast as possible.

There have been times when I have chosen to remain silent about things that I believed to be wrong, unjust, or hurtful.

I was the bystander; the watcher; the one who becomes the gas for the fire of hate.

And it kills me inside to know I acted (or didn’t act) this way.

“Identify the things that are holding you back.  Are you scared of speaking or do you have trouble in your relationships?  Do you lack a positive attitude or do you need more energy?  Make a written inventory of your weaknesses.  Satisfied people are far more thoughtful than others.  Take the time to reflect on what it is that might be keeping you from the life you really want to know deep down you can have.  Once you have identified what your weaknesses are, the next step is to face them head on and attack your fears.  If you fear public speaking, sign up to give twenty speeches.  If you fear starting a new business or getting out of a dissatisfying relationship, muster every ounce of your inner resolve and do it.  This might be the first taste of real freedom that you have experienced in years.  Fear is nothing more than a mental monster you have created, a negative stream of consciousness.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
