Maximize your Strengths and Minimize Weaknesses
Written by Gene Nech on Sept. 17th 2018
Albert Einstein once said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it’s stupid.”
Lets examine, our school system for a moment, which rewards students who thrive at memorizing facts, dates, and figures, and punishes those who don’t. The creative daydreamers are often made to feel as if they are slow learners, when in reality they just need the right tools to master their education. A personal approach is the most efficient way to accelerate the learning curve and power the imaginations of the next generations.
Part 1 : Strengths

The key is knowing yourself – while life, the world, people can be complex – the truth is not. Simplify everything. Decide what you want, concentrate on it to the exclusion of [almost] everything, and embrace the challenge of attaining a world class education. Determine where you fit into this world and in terms of what you like and what makes you angry, and position yourself where your strengths become more of things you like while learning how to take complex problems from once a perceived weaknesses to something useful and fruitful in your life.
Once you find happiness, then deciding what you want to do for a living is easy, but you must first pay attention to which subjects you naturally gravitate towards, your passion will guide you.
Every dream you’ll imagine, everything you see, and hear and feel in your sleep – that’s not a fantasy. That’s your deep instinct telling you that it all can be real. Follow those visions, dreams and desires and believe what you know. Only you can turn those dreams into reality, never stop until you do.
The greatest battles you will ever fight are with yourself and you must always be your toughest opponent. Always demand more of yourself than others demand of you. Be honest with yourself and you will be able to meet every challenge with confidence and the deep belief that you are prepared for anything.
Life can be complicated; the truth is not.
Part 2: Weakness

“Have the courage to face your weaknesses – that is equivalent of keeping both sides of the sword sharp.” – Mr. Nech says that all the time. Staking your claim requires courage and a lot of it. watching movies is only 5% of the iceberg. In order to find out how deep your courage [the ice-burg] really is – you’ll have to hold your breath and jump head first into the cold unknown – that is how we “face the music” or “bite the bullet.” Whatever works for you. I personally decide; then count 1..,2…3 and take action – Jump! Open the book, get stuck, make mistakes as soon as possible. “Study your weaknesses and you will shed light into the dark!”
Once you master both…, well then Success is yours and its really hard to argue against. It’s the early stages education that play a key role of the developmental process and should be provided with the great personal attention to ascend to genius levels and beyond.
