Before we had data, we believed that the royal road to realizing our potential was paved with continuous efforts in removing weaknesses. The myth continues in most organizations with the force of religion.
As it turns out our success is best supported by our abilities. The more we focus on our abilities the more we act with confidence and creativity. We more healthy and resilient we are. The more capable we become of gratitude and generosity.
Every time we present this there are people who want validation that it's "still OK" to work on weaknesses. We invite them to consider the possibility that it's OK to work from their abilities and focus on them primarily. This is navigating any experience we with the question of which of our abilities can best support what we want to see possible.
