When we combine our greatest effort with our greatest strengths, we achieve great things. The equation is hard work and best effort + natural talent = maximum results. Focusing on our strengths and finding more ways to use them is far more effective than wasting time and energy trying to improve our inabilities. No matter how hard we try, we may not be able to improve our weaknesses, so our success is minimal. Our greatest opportunity for success is doing what we are passionate about combined with what we are naturally great at.
Let us not lose sight of what we are great at today.
Transformation starts with our thoughts, in small increments: a mental image and as little as 100 words. Transformation isn't a future event. It's a present-day activity.
"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts." - Thoreau
