When I argue for my weaknesses I get to keep them. When I argue for my strengths… guess what?

I’m speaking in the language of what is, how it sounds in my mind. That’s what my mind is doing when it’s doing it; it’s arguing for why I should stay small. It’s full-on hustling, it’s campaigning. If I’m not hustling for my strengths, I lose. Love and light ain’t gonna do it here. This is hardcore awareness.

When I’m in a conversation with a friend, and they say, “Scott, you really want to do this and you’re so talented and you’d be great at this and you’d really serve a lot of people by creating this,” and I respond with, “Yeah, but what if they don’t like it, or what if it doesn’t turn out how I envision it, or wait, I need to prepare more, or whatever… that’s me arguing for my weaknesses. The point is to catch myself doing it, and to recognize it for what it is.

DO IT:
1. Tell me one way you argue for your weakness.
2. Tell me one way you can flip that to be arguing for your strength.
