When you plan to construct a home, you will likely read a blueprint that explains exactly how to bring the idea to life in real time. That is the poor man’s technique. The rich man will not start by reading the blueprint. The rich man will begin by analyzing the desired location. Is it a floodplain. Are there frequent tornados? Does the neighborhood attract burglars? Crime rate? How about the frequency of erosion resulting from Mother Earth’s showers? The rich man and woman are able to identify weak points before fortification.
Take the same concept and apply it to your life right at this very moment. The world is full of rich and poor people. The problem with the world is the poor aspire to be rich but approach said task blindly. Searching for that special formula to success; trying to mirror the actions of a past greatness. What they forget is that, like location, each person is different and withholds their very own set of strengths and weaknesses. In other words, we all have something unique to us known as personality. Each of which requires special attention.
No matter how great an author or mentor, role models will only be able to guide you so far. Education acts as your personal blueprint. In order to successfully build a foundation for greatness, you must understand both the blueprint and the weak points of your own personality.
For example, upon taking several personality tests, like 16 Personalities (which I highly recommend), I discovered that I’m more of an introvert, as opposed to the opposite, being an extrovert. Frankly, I had already figured but more than that, I was reintroduced to one of my underlying weaknesses that I have never been able to avoid. The nature of being Tracey Bernard Mathis forces me to dream big! So big that when I wake up, I have a never ending list of things that need to be done to ensure my success. The issue? No matter how many I tasks are completed, it’s never enough.
Yeah, yeah.. big deal, I’m productive. No. It’s counterproductive because I always feel that there is more to be done. I struggle with giving myself well-earned breaks. The result. I am forced to fight the new battle of anxiety.
No big deal right? Wrong. I love weight training and physical fitness but periodic anxiety and stress make it difficult to eat like a normal human, causing me to suffer in the weight room. Smaller physique…less confidence.
You see what I mean by understanding your personal weaknesses? We all have limits and things to improve on. If we neglect to address them and act appropriately for improvement, we will cause ourselves an unnecessary amount of hurt and pain.
As always, I am going to pose another challenge for you to make an adjustment for the better. Take the short personality test, and study yourself. Learn where you should direct more of your energy and how to avoid future problems. This will provide you with a far more fortified blueprint to wealth, health, and happiness.
