Studies have shown that when persons focus on overcoming their weaknesses, they also diminish their strengths. The most effective people are those who understand themselves and surround themselves with people who are lovingly honest. All people have strength and weaknesses. Our task is to build on the strengths, “two heads are better than one,” “many hands make light work” and “a stand of three is not easily broken.”
