It is very rare to find a conflict between a person’s strengths and the way that person performs. Strength and performance are complementary. But it is common to find a conflict between what a person values and that same person’s strength. What one does well – even very well – and successfully may not fit with what one truly values in life.
For a country, resource potentials and developmental performance should be complementary. It is unfortunate, however, that we do find conflicts between the sense of values paraded by peoples of a country and that same country’s resources and potentials. The use to which citizens of the country put their resources may not fit with what they profess as their values in life.
Values are and should be the ultimate test.
