365 days of self discovery: day 20

What are your weaknesses?

Like I have said before, to know your strengths, means to know your weaknesses, and I assumed that this would be the next question, so I came prepared. 

  • Anxious 
  • blunt
  • emotional
  • intimidating
  • obnoxious – not much anymore like this, more so when I was younger 
  • self critical
  • too thorough
  • un-trusting of others
  • worrier
  • aggressive at times — where I don’t physically lash out at people, but if someone steps on my toes (metaphorically speaking) and possibly literally as well, I feel the need to speak up and let them know, and if it means at the time that I say it with an angry tone, I do it if it gets the point across, but this is rare occasion but doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen. 
  • critical
  • intense
  • reserved
  • too cautious
  • introverted — which plays into some of my communication skills lacking at times

Probably not the easiest thing to list, because you assume everyone will judge you for where you went wrong, but know this, weaknesses can turn into strengths, if you want them to. They don’t always have to stay weaknesses if you find other methods of coping, dealing with situations/people, then it can work for you and not against you. Just like your strengths, I want to know your weaknesses, leave them in the comments.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon
