In the midst of our strength there are areas of weakness and vulnerability.
You have strengths that make you who you are.
You also have weaknesses that could potentially lead to your downfall.
The powerful Greek warrior Achilles was mortally wounded from a heel wound.
Superman was incapacitated by Kryptonite.
Popeye just ain’t Popeye without Spinach.
The strongest leaders have mortal weaknesses too.
In fact, we ALL have them.
So, what is your Achilles’ heel?
An Achilles’ heel is a fatal weakness in spite of overall strength, actually or potentially leading to our downfall.
Think about your fatal weaknesses in light of your overall strength.
What is the one thing that could potentially harm you and make things very difficult in your life and career?
I’m quite certain you know exactly what it is.
- Moral Failure? What needs to happen or change immediately to ensure this is not an issue for you and your family?
- Prideful Ego? Would a dose of humility help you and your future?
- Wanting Excess? Is there a hunger for more that could lead you to less?
Take the time to think about the areas that could lead to your downfall. If not for yourself, for your family and team members.
You are your own best teacher. You know where you’re coming from and what you’re all about.
You are well aware by now that BEHAVIOR NEVER LIES.
You know where the bodies are buried, the secrets are kept, as well as the names of the skeletons in your closet.
You also know the answer to your problem. But you don’t yet know what you know, or until now you’ve been unwilling to confront it head on.
