Your greatest strength is your weakness

Your strength is your weakness

I’m a talker who married a quiet person.  I bet that’s no surprise.  Over the years I’ve learned that my strength is my weakness.  I talk too much.  I’ve learned that I don’t have to fill silence with the melodic sound of my own voice.  I’ve also learned that a few moments of silence is an invitation for my wife to begin talking and when she starts talking, I listen.  She’s quiet not dumb.  When she starts talking she says so much smart stuff my head spins.

Your greatest strength is your weakness.  You’ll fail if you don’t expand.

Your greatest strength makes you interesting and useful.  Use it, follow it, and leverage it for the good of others.  However, it doesn’t take long for a one string banjo to irritate any listener.  You’ll reach higher by adding a few strings to your instrument.

What weaknesses correspond to your strengths?  Have you seen someone’s strength become their downfall?
