When you fail to note your strengths, you are unable to motivate yourself and mobilize your resources. When you fail to note your weaknesses, they will become the Trojan horses and Achilles’ heels that can make your success a bubble. When you fail to see the opportunities and threats each situation presents to you, you lose your winning cards and fall where you don’t need to fall.
I cringe when people do not value relationships and so are careless with them as they travel life’s journeys. Every penny adds up, so a habit of saving is to be coveted – even if its savings in a piggy bank. Then I also cringe when people are afraid to tackle challenging situations such as marriage, new businesses, and projects just because they don’t have ‘enough money’. The value of money comes only when well leveraged.
