In a perfect world, a person might be flawless in almost everything they are required to do, in order to build a successful career and a successful business. Then again in this imperfect world, we have to realise the fact that we can be impressively good at some things, passable at others and downright terrible at some that hold significant importance in our day to day lives. Being an entrepreneur, this might be an irksome cause for your discontent from work as you are unable to ring your perfectionist image in.
Human beings are granted with natural attributes, which help us succeed on one front, however, might as well handicap us from attaining success on others. Well, not everyone is good at everything, however, turning your weaknesses into strengths is the real key to success.
Recognising your weakness
It is practically impossible to turn your weakness into strengths if you fail to acknowledge that they exist in the first place. Therefore, your first assignment regarding this task would be to identify your weaknesses and work your way to correct them.
Hire the skills you lack
If you are looking to succeed, which we believe you are! It is a great thing to keep your ego aside and accept the fact that you are just not capable to do a certain task. Hiring someone who can fill in the skills that you lack is a better option. Besides compensating for your weakness, this will help you build up an important skill you require – which is to hire employees that trust you, and then trusting them with your work.
There is no bigger examination of your trust than handing over a task to someone that you do not completely understand. By doing this, unintentionally you are empowering your people to take the helm of their work themselves.
In the end, helping people with the same problem will provide you with a feeling of unparalleled satisfaction and expertise. As we believe, aggravation is the mother of invention. If something is not working for you, you are therefore more than sure to believe that it is not working for others as well.
