The Profanity of Hopelessness - Lyrics

Know your weaknesses is often advance as a rule of success.
Well, it sound like an advice,
but it is even more important to know your strengths.
A businessman told a man in his company whose personality
weaknesses were messing up the whole production department.
The employee was tempted more than once to let the fella
go, but instead he kept on trying to think of ways to help him.
And at the same time benefit the business.
After much thinking the employer got an idea.
He drew up a questionnaire listing typical weaknesses and
strength of personality limit or enhance effectiveness on the job.
He pass this questionnaire to everyone in the organization requesting
each to check weaknesses and strengths and
return the signed questionnaire in a seal envelope.
He promised to keep the information confidential.
The sole purpose being the help each person by self evaluation.
The last man, to return this questionnaire was Frank.
He delivered it personally,
laid it on the bosses desk and said I
analyze myself with the help of this questionnaire.
Never realized I had so many weaknesses.
Frankly if I headed this company,
I would fire a man with that many weaknesses.
Maybe you just better let me go, I wouldn't blame you.
The employer took a blank piece of paper,
and place it over the weaknesses check on the questionnaire.
What's that you're saying Frank.
I'm not looking at your weaknesses right now.
What I'm looking at are your strengths.
Did you realize you have these many strengths.
Let's both of us think over for a few days,
and then let's consider which of your
strengths we should specially develop in this company.
When they met again the boss announced,
Frank it comes to me that we should
take you out of the production department.
I'm going to put you in sales.
Well that's the last thing I think I'll be good at.
That's because you've been moping along in
your weaknesses instead on your strengths.
I see in you a terrific salesman.
Today, he is one of the companies most successful salesman.
He is now a great producer says his boss.
Because he is living and working not
on his weaknesses but on his strengths.
Well how about you and me?
Are we living in our strengths.
I wonder.
To be truly successful as a person,
one must be conscious of ones main
strengths and activate, develop and use them.
This takes effort but you must rise to the
challenge, That is if you wanna get anywhere.
Beware of going off on attachment or trying to copy
someone else or trying to broaden your base too much.
Avoid these failure patterns, strict to your main strength.
