According to famous entrepreneur and public speaker, Gary Vaynerchuk, the most important factor for success in any discipline is self-awareness. In this video, he talks about how identifying your strengths and weaknesses is essential to owning success because understanding yourself is a skill in itself.
As Vaynerchuk says, “If you know who you are then by nature you will probably bet on your strengths”. That is when you are more likely to believe in yourself and find out what you excel at. It is also when you begin to build on that knowledge, and learn how you can use your strengths to further your own interests.

Spending your time on the things that you like, that you are good at and that matter to you are the foundations of success because then you are playing to your strengths and not your weaknesses. If you are striving for success, playing to your weaknesses is never a good idea.
