Focus on what people can do, not what they cannot do.

“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.”—- Confucius

There is one unique quality that separates us. That unique quality is what we should focus on in people. We should focus on people’s strengths, not their weaknesses.

For recruiters, when hiring for a new position, don’t waste your time, focus on the candidate’s strengths, not on his or her weaknesses.

We shouldn’t focus on what people cannot do, we should focus on what they can do. It is what they can do that will help your business, not what they cannot do.

The world is a beautiful world. People are beautiful. But people choose to focus on the negative things that are happening around us. Focus on the positive things, so that positive energy will move toward you.

A positive person will attracts positive things. A negative person will attracts negative things. You can change your negative thoughts or feelings into positive thoughts.

Positive things attract positive things

Negative things attract negative things

Find the good things in people, and maintain them.

Find the good things in yourself, and celebrate them

It is important to focus on what people can do, because the world is full of people that are ready to steal their dreams away. They tell them what they cannot do; they are not interested in what they can do. They focus on their weaknesses instead of their strengths.

Focus on what people can do, not what they cannot do.

How to identify problems and opportunities on the job

How do you identify problems and opportunities on the job? Do you see problems on the job? Do you see opportunities on the job? Why are they important to know?

This question is asking you to think about how you would identify pressing problems and opportunities on the job.

The interviewer wants to know your creative abilities, your critical thinking abilities, and your problem-solving skills.

How to answer this question:

Explain to the interviewer how you will detect potential problems on the job, and what to do about them. Also, explain to the interviewer how you will identify opportunities that have the potential of changing the direction of things in the company. As Erich Seligmann  Fromm puts it: “Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.”

Explain how detecting problems on the job can save the company lots of money. And also how identifying opportunities on the job can move the company forward into a new market, or make them the leader in their current market.

Remember, don’t talk too much.
