Turn Your Weaknesses to Power
Sometimes the biggest weakness can be turned to strength. Weakness or Strength? The story of a 10-year-old boy who decided to take judo after losing his left arm in an automobile accident is often used to illustrate the point whether the cup is half empty or half full.
The boy studied with an old Japanese judo master who taught him only one move in three months. When the boy asked if he should learn more, the teacher said, "This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you'll ever need to know."
After months of training, the boy entered his first tournament and won three matches to reach the finals. The final bout was difficult, but when his opponent made a critical mistake, the boy used his move to pin him and become champion.
Afterwards, the boy asked how he could have won with only one move. The sensei answered, "First, you've almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grab your left arm."
So, if the world has treated you to lemons, make some lemonade!
