Then why are some people living a better life than others? Why are some people more successful than others? Most interestingly, why are there people who look and act like the bottom of the barrel, potential-wise?
I don't know. But I do know that if anyone sets his mind on reaching a particular height in life, he can. That the deadbeat can become anything he wants to be. And that is what I tell myself to inspire me to look beyond my weaknesses.
People are my biggest weakness. I have horrible people skills. And it is shaping the course of my life and business. I have very few friends: the ones who didn't give up on me. I am struggling to build a team for my business. And that is my number one biggest challenge.
My number two biggest challenge is not unconnected to my near non-existing people skills and the trouble it's causing me is specific to my business. Negotiating. I don't know how to negotiate business deals. I am always undercutting myself in the end, for most.
This year I am going to tackle these two challenges. They are blocking me from achieving my potential. I know it won't be easy, I will make a lot of mistakes and I don't even now how to go about it all. All I know is that, the same way I don't give up when I am programming and up against a big problem, I won't give up on this. I will keep trying all I come across till I make progress and ultimately, succeed.
Luckily, some/all of you have a different set of strengths and weaknesses. If your strength is in this area, please help a brother. Would appreciate some practical tips and even books to get.
