Our greatest strengths are our greatest weaknesses

Without an open mind, there is no opportunity for growth.


Or as most like to say, just plain, old, full of yourself.

Yes, were all good at something, everyone gets it. Others understand that we are all awesome in our own right. What is a problem is when we allow our heads to swell the size of bloated watermelons in the summer heat after telling ourselves, oh say about one hundred times, just how amazing we are at our certain something, whatever it may be. It is at this stage that we allow our greatest strengths to overwhelm us and become the only thing we see. They blind us, overpower us, they become in this instance our greatest weaknesses.

We are no longer motivated to achieve; what more could we possibly need in our lives other than our greatest strengths?

As I said. Blinded.

Let’s all do ourselves a favour and go and eat a friggin’ piece of humble pie (myself included) before it’s too late.


  1. Haha I like this blog, very descriptive and short and sweet! You get to the point straight away and with savvy :)

  2. Looking at it again I think it's also important to acknowledge that when you think you are the best at something, whatever it may be, you also stop learning thus again, our greatest strengths = our greatest weaknesses.
