People say that you need to focus on your weaknesses so you can develop them to be stronger. I disagree. Don’t focus on your weaknesses; focus on your strengths! God made you with special abilities — use them. Don’t waste time on the stuff you’re bad at when you could be spending that time doing something you’re great at. That’s not to say you should ignore your weaknesses. On the contrary, you should know what they are so you can surround yourself with people who are strong in those areas. That’s what teamwork and the body of Christ is all about.
Plus, people tend to enjoy what they’re good at and dislike the tasks they’re weak in, so if everyone in a team focuses on their strengths and balance each other out, then that should be one happy and highly successful team!
