I am currently reading a book about developing ones strengths. The premise of the book being that throughout our lives we constantly have people telling us what we are not good at or where our weaknesses are and as a result, we get so stuck trying to 'fix' ourselves that we don't move past our weaknesses.
This book presents a different reality. Why not focus on what is good about yourself and what your strengths are rather? In doing so, we will become more successful and dealing with our weaknesses will become so much easier.
Ironic. Isn't that what scripture tells us?
- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
- Whatsoever things are good and pure, think on these things.
- If we have faith we can move mountains.
- God is our refuge and strength.
I think we know where to go too, to find our strengths, don't you?

Brother Ronwyn, I completely agree with you and believers do get it; and are concentrating more on the positives than the negatives. It was the Apostle Paul who said, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14) I write all my articles and books from a positive perspective and I find great comfort in Bible verses like this one, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all." (Psalm 34:19) Keep reading positive books and keep writing too. Blessings on you Brother.
