The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness

Do you want more happiness, fulfillment, and energy? Do you want to dramatically improve your productivity and increase employee performance?

Our parents, teachers, and managers have told us that, if we want to succeed, we should find and fix our weaknesses. However, this is the wrong approach because each weakness is also a strength. We can create outrageous personal and professional success by amplifying flaws, instead of denying them.
