I recently read a fascinating article about Tim Cook completing 10 successful years as the CEO of Apple and how he actually surpassed the achievements of the original genius, Steve Jobs! No one expected this man, who came from a background of global supply chains and spreadsheets, to be able to do a role of inspiring one of the most creative technology businesses that exist today. He knew he had large shoes to fill, but clearly, he focused on his strengths instead of weaknesses to bring Apple where it is today!
It is natural to dwell on our weaknesses rather than centering ourselves on our strengths; however, all successful people push themselves to do otherwise. It isn’t easy for anyone to be able to look away from their weakness but to achieve the goals one has set, it is crucial to decrease their effect and move on!
