TL;DR: Why worry so much about your weaknesses? Leverage your strengths instead.

We all have strengths and weaknesses. It’s important to reduce our weaknesses, but don’t forget to hone your strengths so that you can get better results.

Imagine if an ostrich spent all its time flapping its stubby wings harder so that it could fly. It would have neglected the power of its long legs to run.

Ostriches can’t fly. That doesn’t mean they can’t be the fastest running bird.

Many birds fly. But there can be only one fastest species — the falcon. You don’t always have to compete. You can be different.

Be the ostrich and win in your category.
