Strengths and Weaknesses

In the shadow of every strength lies a weakness.
We all need Outside Perspective from time to time…three reasons:
1. Objectivity – our own hopes and fears can cloud our judgment.
2. Maturity – Mentoring or advice from outside ourselves can stretch us beyond where we would otherwise have grown.
3. Visibility – We don’t know what we don’t know…and can’t see what we can’t see!
Outside perspective can come in several different forms, ranging from periodic advice, workshops or conferences to ongoing mentorship or coaching.
There have been several key periods in my life where I have benefitted greatly from objective outside perspective. Most recently, I felt that I knew what the right answer was, but feared to step out in the correlating direction, thinking that I had missed something in my decision making. There is a whole bunch of peace in affirmation!
