Chapter 2 Capitalize on your strengths

Capitalizing On Your Strengths

Go to the sound of the bugles (your strengths). Many of us spend too much time and energy worrying about our weaknesses and not enough time taking full advantage of our personal strengths. Those who succeed in life go to their strengths rather than patch-work quilting their weaknesses. In short, we should be accenting the positive while managing around the negative.

While it’s strength to know your weaknesses, it’s even a bigger strength to know your strengths and align them with your true purpose and passion. Remember, fully developing your strengths requires doing things repeatedly with a sense of passion and joy. Take stock of what you do best and lead from your strengths. Heed the battle cry: Go to the sound of the bugles!
