Focus on your strengths and you will lead a successful life. Society teaches us to focus on the weakness of ourselves and others which is counterproductive. Guest speaker Ray Shiraishi, business coach, helps people focus on their strengths to improve business thus leading a successful life. This GMM was a small gathering of current and potential members which made it more personable. Those in attendance expressed qualities that people perceived as a weakness but what turned out to be a strength. One lady said people thought she was too outspoken but she turned to be a great advocate for Asian Americans in her state. So when you have time to reflect, think about your strengths and it will carry you far.
