Personal Strengths
and Weaknesses
A reason that this country works well is that everyone has diverse abilities which can
contribute to everyday life. Some people let those abilities shine at work, in their
personal life or both. As people have their strengths, they also have their weaknesses.
There is a problem to improve those weaknesses when the weakness is not identified. Once
the weak point is identified it needs to be resolved. A plan of action for improvement
helps in solving the situation. In this paper, I will identify abilities and skills that I
possess that contribute positively in my work environment, in my personal life, and in my
learning team. I will also identify personal areas that need improvement, and outline a
plan of action for improvement.

potential for drastic workplace or school environment change. Working on different types
of assignments weekly has taught me to adapt my skills in a variety of different work
situations.

Another of my stronger qualities is my physical ability. I have always been in touch with
that side of myself. I figure if I can't pull my own weight, I will be useless. Being a
Marine makes me concentrate on that aspect day in and day out. We often have competitions
of various things just to keep it interesting. I really can't imagine myself without
physical training.

The last quality that enhances my personality is structured organization. I provide
strength and confidence to my peers and team members in times of unpredicted situations. I
try to remain calm, so I can provide direction. A team needs a person they can look up to
for guidance and support for work or school issues. Since I will be working with teams
