7 Ways Successful People Deal With Their Weaknesses

Nobody is perfect; even the wisest people have weaknesses. We sit back and assume that successful people have it easy, but that’s not true, they have struggled and kept going until they reached that position. What’s different about them is not their traits or money or opportunities, it’s how they see life and how they do things differently.

They are aware of their weaknesses, but they rather focus on their strengths and work towards improving them. Don’t believe it yet? Well, take the most successful people you know, and think about them. You only know them for their best skills and talents, not their weaknesses right? Well, neither do they. This is the exact mindset we should all adopt.

Here are 7 ways in which successful people deal with their weaknesses.

1. Concentrate On What Interests You

If you are running behind something that does not interest you but you are just doing it for the sake of it, then your performance would be mediocre. It will only reflect as your weakness, as your mind cannot perform well at that task. Instead, look at what makes you feel better. When you work hard towards achieving something you are passionate about, success will follow your path.

“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” – Herman Melville

2. Managing Time

We often try to get too many things done at once, or nothing at all. And neither is good. You need to analyze how much needs to be done and how much you can do. Organization and time management are two skills you need to be efficient at if you want to become successful. Just by being more responsible with time, people can get more work done in less time.

3. Enhancing Key Skills

Don’t we all have certain skills that we are exceptionally good at? And it’s just easier for us to do well at it. As discussed above, people who are smart, focus their time and energy on improving what they are already good at, which only sharpens those strengths even more. When you excel in what you are best at, nobody will even notice what your weaknesses are.

4. A Set Goal and a Plan

Making a concrete plan can give you proper focus towards where you are headed. Without focus, we tend to lose our way, and it only delays the journey towards success. Figure out what you want and how you plan on achieving it. Even someone who are successful today had to make a plan, and struggle all the way up.

5. The Will to Take Risks

Anything that is challenging won’t come without risks. The uncertainty is a part of success, only the will to keep going through it all will keep you active in the game. One of the biggest fears we all face is the fear of losing. This stops us from even taking a chance or going the extra mile. What makes successful people different is their will to take a risk.

6. Not Letting Failure Stop You

There are small failures that await you along the way, and that’s the truth. Even successful people have faced failures in life, but they struck back. Don’t let one single failure dictate your life; it’s only one weak moment. But fight the weakness with your strengths. We all fall, more than once, but unless we learn to get up and gear up, we would never be able to succeed.

“Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.” – Chris Grosser

7. Surrounding Yourself With Positivity

The worst enemy to any mind is negativity – it can easily drag you down. By steering clear of negativity around you and having a clear perspective, you can follow your goal with no distractions. Successful people get a lot of negative vibes, but they always have their guard up. If you let it get to you, it will only make you deviate from your path.  

There is not much difference between someone who is successful and someone who is not – it’s just their approach to life. They may be doing the same things as we are, but they do it differently with more focus and direction, and with a fire that keeps their passion burning. Let the stories of others inspire you to forget your weaknesses and be successful.

Organizations spend a great amount of time throughout the course of a year in meetings. Meetings should always be meaningful, organized, and necessary. Unfortunately, too many meetings I have sat through fit what a friend once told me, “Meetings are people sitting around talking about things they ought to be doing.” I can recall many meetings I attended through my career wishing I could have been in my office working!
