Personal deficiencies might be termed negative qualities and include unreliability, failure to cooperate, laziness, untidiness, trouble making, interference and dishonesty. Positive qualities would include willingness, cheerfulness, courtesy, honesty, neatness, reliability and temperance. Many fail in their work because they are unable to overcome one personal deficiency. Check up on yourself. Don't be afraid to put yourself under a microscope. Eliminate your negative qualities. Develop your positive ones. You can't win with the check mark in the wrong place.
