No one likes to feel like they are bad at something.  It's a VERY uncomfortable thing.  However, there is only ONE way to really make big improvements or advances in your life; self-assessment.  Have you ever tried it?  Like sitting in a room all by yourself, with no one around, no distractions, looking in the mirror, and REALLY examining what your strengths are and what your weaknesses are.  In the fire service, this used to be one of the basic interview questions:  tell me your strengths and weaknesses.  The object was to tell your interviewers a strength that fit into what the department was looking for and then give them a "weakness" that can also be seen as a  strength.  I used to use the word "competitive" as my weakness because "it puts undue stress and pressure on me and doesn't allow me to just enjoy certain situations".  This really isn't a lie, but its kind of a weak sauce answer.  Then I'd back it up with "but competitiveness can be a strength since it pushes you to always strive to be your best".  In the interview situation, this was a game.  Yes, it was introspective but only to the point where I could use it to my advantage.  This is NOT self-assessment.  When you look in the mirror you have to REALLY call yourself out on the things you need to work on.  There is only ONE way to really get those goals or achievements you are fighting for, and that is truly understanding exactly what you are working with.  Once you have this VERY real understanding of yourself, then you can make a plan that is designed specifically for you and your strengths and weaknesses.  It will be the fastest way to success.  Don't be afraid of seeing your weaknesses.  Because they are identified, then they can be addressed and fixed!! :)
