When we think of improving ourselves, we often jump to the conclusion that we need to work on our weaknesses — but that’s where we’ve been wrong all along! It’s often challenging, sometimes even impossible, to refine ourselves where our weaknesses lie. There’s no shame in that. God gave us unique abilities and talents we must share with the world. We don’t have to be the best in everything. We only have to unleash the strength within ourselves to fulfill God’s purpose for us.
In this episode, Eddie Villa talks about why we feel miserable when we make others happy and disregard our feelings. He also shares how we can uncover the power hiding within us through the Gallup Strengths assessment. As a society, we must rely on each other’s abilities for us to flourish. As such, Eddie explains why we should focus on improving our strengths instead of our weaknesses.
For those who want to use their God-given talents to maximize their potential, this episode is for you!
