Each zodiac sign has its own unique set of strengths and challenges. While everyone wants to emphasize their strengths at work (obviously, right?), being aware of your challenges can actually give you a head start in the workplace. What is your greatest weakness at work? We dug a little bit and found out what would challenge you the most, thanks to your zodiac sign.
When we don’t recognize our own weaknesses, we don’t get to know each other. However, when we recognize and accept our greatest challenges, we allow them to shape and inform us. By recognizing the biggest challenges you face in your professional life, you are helping to ensure your own success.
Here’s your biggest weakness at work, according to your zodiac sign.
Let’s be realistic, Aries: you are bossy. You are a great leader, but your natural tendency is to fight your way to the top.
You prefer to do it your way and only your way Needless to say, your dictatorship is not always appreciated by your colleagues. It would be helpful to focus on tact and collaboration.
You are too stubborn, Taurus, and if we are, to be honest, you can also be a little lazy.
This means that you are a colleague who is not only rigid enough to work with but who does not always pull his or her own weight. The solution? Be more flexible and launch more projects.
You need tons of mental stimulation and energy, Gemini, so your biggest challenge is not to be bored and create unnecessary work and/or piece together, or your job.
Try to put this creative energy into your work – perhaps consider becoming self-employed – or get a new hobby.
You are super sensitive, Cancer. A little too sensitive about the workplace, and you also tend to blame yourself.
This means that if someone criticizes your work in the smallest way, you will put it on your list. It would be in your best interest to take the criticism in a less personal and constructive manner and not to remember everyone’s hurt.
Keep your ego in check, Leo. It’s the only thing that keeps you from growing up.
If you can master your giant head – which means allowing yourself to be humble and vulnerable most of the time – then there’s really nothing you can’t do.
You are a workaholic and a perfectionist, Virgo. Not terrible qualities in themselves, but when they come at the expense of your health, as well as your ability to get along with your colleagues, then these are more challenges than strengths.
Try to be less critical of yourself and others, and don’t forget to take a vacation.
Because you like to keep harmony and balance in check, Libra, you tend not to immediately express your concerns and feelings.
Instead, you let them fester until you almost have a blowout- or write a rushed email that you ultimately regret. Do not be afraid to express what you are feeling and do not be afraid of not being loved either.
You are super ambitious, Scorpio, which is not a bad thing. But associate that with your secret nature and you’re not really a team player.
In fact, you can even see your colleagues as competitors and refrain from approaching them. Instead, reduce the intensity and try collaboration.
And remember, if you have nothing nice to say, then you don’t have anything to say at all. Really.
You are a hard worker, Capricorn, which means that you like to work the way you do. It also means that you don’t like to delegate and that you can easily get annoyed when a colleague isn’t doing a job like you would.
Try loosening the reins a bit and see how everyone can bring their unique gifts to the table.
Take a risk and try to do something before weighing the pros and cons. Taking action will set you free.
Pisces, you are sensitive and creative. Your fine qualities, however, work against you when you are in a more practical and structured workplace because you end up feeling suffocated and not appreciated. Make room to let your creative impulses flow, whether through a hobby or a new job that uses them to their fullest potential.
Now that you know your biggest challenges, it’s time to take them out of the park and be the #girlboss you are! You have that.
