Personal growth best tip to move your life forward

psx_20191118_175336How many times have you felt like you seriously needed to improve on something and become a  better person, but drained by the thought of you not moving ,maybe because of a weakness that keeps coming and showing up every time you are prepared to take off and when you are about to reach your full potential and live a fulfilled life, suddenly Boom!Failure! all the energy goes and suddenly you remember you still have a weakness to work on and the cycle repeats itself…..always trying to improve.

The other day I was working on a project that took forever to see the light of the day….I had this to do……., that to work on…someone to see, somewhere to go …the list is endless. At the end of it all I was disappointed with myself and  felt like I wasn’t disciplined and probably I would have just focused on one thing and leave everything else aside…. So I thought to myself ……What next ?I started wondering ….Well, maybe it’s a weakness I have ,which I need to work on so that I can stay focused and set priorities right. Interestingly  I started working and reading on how to stay disciplined,how to stop procrastinating etc…. but before I finished I realized I still had something else to work on, the cycle didn’t seem to end…..sounds familiar right..

I got into a conversation with my mentor Bindu Krishnan this morning, as usual after our main business agenda was done ,the story of  a weakness that am working on….something I want to improve on….shows up uninvited of course. After listening to me carefully she mentioned something that changed my whole perception about Personal development and growth.She said “Personal development is not focusing on what you do not do well,it’s a waste of time.Focus on your strengths.Use your talents in every aspect of your work and you will see yourself moving”.

She recommended this  book Strengths Finder by Tom Rath  and I thought I share it here so that we can swim against the current, get exposed to ideas that let us expand and refine our guidance system, to avoid  getting stuck with the system of concentrating on improving our weakness that has been handed to us over time and missing to utilize our true and full potential.
