Interpersonal Weaknesses

The first type of weaknesses that we are going to discuss is interpersonal weaknesses. These are weaknesses that come from other people. Most of the time, you will not actually have people stopping you from achieving success, you will just think they are stopping you. This is a form of the mental block rather than an interpersonal one.

You can identify when interpersonal weakness is actually a mental one, because the person that you think is keeping you from achieving success actually hasn’t said or done anything to prevent you from being successful. An example of this would be someone who is afraid of taking a leap of faith because they don’t want to disappoint their parents, when they actually haven’t discussed the matter with their parents and don’t know for sure what their reaction be at

The actual interpersonal weakness, when you really have someone that is impeding you, is more difficult to get past. This usually comes in the form of a spouse. The spouse may not understand what it is that you’re trying to do, they may have fears that you aren’t going to be able to pay your bills; they might even be fearful that you, yourself, are going to change and they aren’t sure where that leaves them. Most of the time, this impediment comes in the form of anger. Rarely does a personal block like this resort in a major life change such as a divorce thought.
