We, humans, are a balanced blend of strengths and weaknesses, good and bad, positives and negatives. However, we only take an initiative to advertise all the good part of personalities, because let’s face it, no one wants to showcase the negative side; unless you reassemble the legendary character of Joker from The Dark Knight written by Christopher Nolan.

Our positives and strengths place us in a position where people can actually like us, however, we tend to forget that weaknesses are the equal parts of our life and instead of neglecting them, we should address them and harness their energy to eliminate the struggle they cause in our life.

We all have a list of at least three or four strengths right on the tip of our tongue, however, describing our weakness leaves us dumbstruck. Many of us don’t even know about the blemish characters of their personality as they are unaware of the fact that working on them can change their lives drastically. Especially around the workplace.

You put great efforts every day and still you fall into the category of underperformers, perhaps it’s time you let your stars guide you to identify your imperfections. So that you can improve your performance and shine in your career.

Believe us many people have ego issues but you should try to keep it low at work. Take that feedback constructively and work your way through it. Your improvement is going to benefit you, not your ego.
