Self-Assessment, R You Ready for Success?

Look around; there are people in this world who are successful in any number of venues; singers, actors, business professionals, news anchors, technologists and more. It doesn’t matter where you look, there are those who are successful in their niche; they found what they are good at and excelled.

If you’re struggling with success or feel that you just don’t know where to start, let me assure you, you are not alone. I encourage you to do a serious self-assessment to evaluate if the success you are envisioning is in alignment with your true self. You may be more than qualified for success, but are focusing in a field that is not your forte. By drawing your attention to an area you are better suited might give you the boost you need to achieve the success you dream of.

A tool often used in business to help identify your core competencies is the SWOT analysis. It stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Take your current self, the person you are today, and think about what you are good at (strengths). Next identify your weaknesses (what you’re not so good at), the opportunities you’ve had in life and finally threats (what might keep you from becoming successful in your current path). Once you identify yourself through the SWOT analysis, you may have some insight into your ability to be successful or not if you continue on your current path.

You may find you’re unsuccessful or lacking in your desired achievements because you are honing a vision that is not in alignment with your true self. Consider using the SWOT analysis today to find the REAL you!
