We spend a lot of our life trying to change what we don’t like about ourselves…
What we don’t often realize is that part of us can be used to our advantage.
In essence, taking our weakness and making it a strength.
For much of my childhood. I didn’t have much confidence, for a variety of reasons.
I was skinny. I had a distinctive nose. I spoke “funny” and I was somewhat of a momma’s boy.
Now, despite what people thought, I ate A LOT. I just didn’t gain weight thanks to my hyperactive metabolism.
My nose, well, there wasn’t much I could do about that.
After years of practice, somehow I managed to lose my English accent.
And I guess I’ll always be a momma’s boy.
Despite being bullied, I just brushed it off.
No matter what people said or how much it hurt, I enjoyed my life.
But it wasn’t until I got older that I started to realize that all of my strengths (some innate, some learnt) and my weaknesses made me who I am. A sort of personal USP (unique selling point). We each have that.
We each have talents that are seemingly unimpressive to ourselves, but quite impressive to others.
That’s what happened to Danish Ahmed as well.
In fact, despite suffering from depression at an early age, he was able to take his biggest weaknesses and turn them into his greatest strengths and is now doing his part to share what he’s learned about life with others.
Last week I sat down with Danish to hear his story and get his take on success and life.
Danish shares some fabulous insights, especially for people looking to make a change in their lives.
It was my pleasure to sit down with Danish and I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of this interview.
