Having a clear understanding of your strengths can help you market yourself and help you direct these strengths toward achieving your goals, including overcoming the fear, weaknesses and low self-esteem.


Lack of self-esteem, fear and weaknesses are major problems that hold people back and keep them from achieving success. No matter what others think about you, ultimately, it is you who must become comfortable and proud of yourself. It is you who must develop the internal drive to achieve success, and it is you who must create a plan for yourself in terms of how you'll go about achieving your goals and dreams. Knowing that you're totally prepared, informed, educated, and skilled enough to face various situations in your personal and professional life will give you confidence. Experiencing success and developing real world experience will give you an additional confidence boost over time. Developing respect for yourself is something that you need to do. No matter what other people think about you, this can't control the level of self-respect you possess. Everyone experiences fear. Some people learn how to face their fears and confront them head-on. Others discover other ways of dealing with their fears, while some people accept their fears and let them become debilitating factors in their lives.

Which category you fall into when it comes to dealing with fear will have a tremendous impact on your ability to achieve success. Everyone is fearful at times of change, taking risks, or having to deal with situations they're uncomfortable with, among others. If you're being paralyzed by fear, determine for yourself what is causing the fear and confront it head-on. What do you fear? What's the worst thing that could happen if your fear becomes reality? What steps can you take to ensure what you're fearful of doesn't ever happen? Are you afraid of a real or perceived threat? Are you afraid of physical harm, for example, because you're actually in danger? Or, are you simply afraid you're going to fail, so you don't bother even trying to succeed? Take whatever time is necessary to focus on what you're afraid of and why, then determine what steps you need to take to overcome the fears that you believe are holding you back from achieving your true potential.

Before you can overcome your weaknesses, fears, and obstacles, the first step is to determine what exactly is holding you back. The next step is to develop and adopt an action plan to ensure that whatever challenges you face won't hold you back. Be realistic; some challenges or obstacles simply can't be overcome. You'll probably find that some things are simply out of your control. In these situations, tap your creativity to find ways to work around the obstacles. Instead of allowing an obstacle or weakness to be a roadblock, at most, consider it a detour on the road to success and navigate your way around it. As you obtain more experience facing your obstacles and challenges head-on, you'll discover the mindset you ultimately adopt will play a tremendous role in your ability to actually achieve success.

If you truly believe what you're trying to accomplish is possible and within your means, you'll find ways to make things happen based on the resources available to you. If, however, you adopt the mindset that you can't achieve success, for whatever reason, your mind will be conditioned to accept this, and your chances of achieving your goals and dreams will be greatly reduced. Don't train yourself to accept roadblocks and defeat. Train yourself to think differently and learn how to overcome whatever blocks your path to success. Most people, and you're probably one of them, would prefer to avoid thinking about their fears, weaknesses, and the challenges they face. This is human nature. However, by confronting these shortcomings, whatever they may be, your chances of overcoming them become far greater. You also thought about your strengths; remember that these strengths can help you overcome your weaknesses.
