Let’s just think about this for a minute, let’s think about it like answering the flip side to this question is “What are your acceptable strengths?”
We all know what are strengths are, or we should anyways.
Now let’s talk about the definition of horrific, it is something that is terrifying or causing fear.
Of course this is nothing to be afraid of, so perhaps horrific was not a great choice of words, but I am sure it did get your attention.
Well we all have a weakness, nobody is so perfect as to not have aweakness.
If you have been following me, well then you know that last week I went and visited my family for a few days.
While I was gone, I neglected to go over my e-bay inventory and I had 3 orders that came in that were out of stock.
At this point I could NOT say I am a perfectionist by no means. But I do strive hard for this one LOL!!
My Horrific Weakness!
I am pretty sure one of my most horrific weaknesses is trying to always make everything perfect!
Although being a perfectionist is not a bad thing, it is just unrealistic to think I can do everything right all the time!
So perhaps my horrific weakness is also my greatest strength, which is being a perfectionist.
I do seek perfectionist is each and every task I take on!
Perhaps consistency could be one of my horrific weaknesses?
I have learned from experience that consistency and success go hand in hand!
You cannot just maintain consistency towards your goals once in awhile and expect to achieve the success you want.
You do have to be committed to getting the job at hand done, whether you do it yourself or have someone do it for you.
I have heard this somewhere before and know it fits with what I am sharing here today.
So instead of Freaking Out about the fact that I didn’t complete my tasks on time, we need to learn that there will always be more to do.
So I guess my point is that we really need to decide which activities fall into that critical “MUST DO” category and then let the rest go.
What is one of the best ways to overcome your horrific weakness?
I guess in this case it is to maintain consistency no matter what I am up to.
When you stick to an action plan, you will have a much easier time reaching your goals.
This is why consistency is so important!
Consistency helps you take your horrific weakness more seriously!
I need to learn that this is a business, not a hobby!
When you stick to your word and maintain consistency with your actions, then others will take you more seriously for this.
If you are not consistent people will therefore question your motive and passion.
Don’t let that horrific weakness get in your way, if you have a goal you are planning on reaching, you have to maintain with everything you do!
Every factor no matter, how big or small, everything plays a huge factor!
You cannot just do something half assed as I did last week and expect to get the same results!
Nope we cannot just do one thing and let something else slide.
THE GOOD NEWS!
The more consistent, the easier things will become as this will become a habit and habits lead us to our goals.
Yes, I guess I just need to accept that I will never get everything done by myself and perhaps it is time for me to hire on someone to help.
Yikes nobody likes to admit they have a weakness, but we can take this weakness and turn it into a strength.
So what did I learn from this experience and how can I overcome this from happening in the future?
My horrific weakness is trying to always achieve perfection!
I need to learn that I am not perfect and I have to quit being so critical of my achievements and give myself the credit I deserve for the things I have accomplished thus far.
I will always strive to be the very best team player and always, always use positive thinking to help get me through the tough situations.
How about this?
My most horrific weakness is accepting my mistakes!
I am putting this down on paper here to remind myself I do need to cut myself some slack now and again making room for improvement!
So have you learned anything from this post?
How about sharing in the comments below about your most horrific weakness and why you think this is so?
So, tell me, what is your most horrific weakness?
To Endless Possibilities
