We all have weaknesses. We could all use some shoring up and improvement when it comes to our character traits, personalities, attitudes, skills and even habits.
So before someone else recognizes your weaknesses and tries to take advantage of you, beat them at their own game. Instead of waiting to be attacked, attack yourself. Envision a possible scenario and take yourself on as someone else might do. Pretty quickly you’ll see where you are vulnerable and and see what you need to do to make the necessary changes to protect yourself.
Come to think of it, there are many businesses that could benefit from this exercise to avoid attacks from competitors!
