Success is achieved by development of our strengths, not by elimination of our weakness.
To excel means to reach beyond the best you have ever given because doing so matters to you personally, for its own sake. It means to run your own race—as an individual, team, or organization. To excel is to know your greatest strengths and passions, and to emphasize them while honestly admitting and managing your weaknesses.
~ Robert Cooper Quotes from The Other 90%: How to Unlock Your Vast Untapped Potential for Leadership & Life
This work somehow awakened my dormant powers of will and I began to practice self-control. At first my resolutions faded like snow in April, but in a little while I conquered my weakness and felt a pleasure I never knew before -- that of doing as I willed.
~ Nikola Tesla Quotes from Autobiography
Emphasize strengths, don’t fix weaknesses.
~ Timothy Ferriss Quotes from The 4-Hour Workweek
