I’ve been working in the field of literacy and learning differences for a long time. And over the course of these years I became so good at helping students improve their weaknesses that it took a while for me to remember that for most people, success and happiness in life comes from developing strengths.

Here’s a letter, My letter to my younger self, that Richard Branson, entrepreneur who’s also dyslexic, wrote to his younger self that touches upon that idea and others.

It’s ok not to be good at some things; as long as you find good people you can trust and surround yourself with them. Learn what you’re good at and channel that, instead of focusing on what you can’t do.
