I was working with someone this week who I believe is incredibly skilled, personable, and competent. Yet when I met with him, I was so surprised by his inability to see the great stuff I see.
It made me wonder why he was so attuned to his weaknesses and not so clear about his myriad of strengths. I have come to the conclusion that we are “taught” to be excellent problem solvers and part of this is quickly finding weaknesses and fixing them.
I encourage you to explore yourself appreciatively -knowing that since your brain is wired to solve problems, you will definitely see the whole package as a matter of course.
Have a great day,
