“Never be afraid to expose a weakness in yourself. Exposing a weakness is the beginning of strength.” ~ Robert Anthony
What is your Achilles’ heel (weakness)? The sooner you figure out your Achilles’ heel and address it, the sooner you will be on your way to living a rich life!
My Achilles’ heel has been discipline and distraction. I have a whole story around discipline that I will share with you when I get to that word, but just know that lack of discipline can destroy your dreams, health and wealth!
Distraction is everywhere these days. For someone like me who loves to learn and is curious about everything, technology has been both a blessing and a curse. I absolutely LOVE that information on any topic can be accessed within a nanosecond of a Google search and that I receive hundreds of emails on subjects that interest me, but clicking on those links can lead down a rabbit hole that makes hours seem to pass like minutes. And with instant access to information and people now in the palm of our hands, distraction is at an all time high.
I have wasted years getting distracted and chasing shiny objects. I get excited about projects and then abandon them for the next distraction that I believe deserves my attention. While the excitement of a new idea, project or venture creates an almost addictive high, it quickly fades into the background like a ghost town, leaving another failure and nick to my self-confidence in its wake.
An unchecked Achilles’ heel keeps you settling for less than you are capable of doing. It makes mediocrity seem okay. The bad news is your Achilles’ heel can prevent you from living a rich life. The good news is that once you identify your Achilles’ heel, you have the opportunity to turn it into a strength which can lead to a rich life like Phil Hansen has done with his art!
“What I thought would be the ultimate limitation turned out to be the ultimate liberation.” ~ Phil Hansen
