YOU NEED TO HAVE SELF-AWARENESS
Self Awareness is about knowing yourself. It means having a clear view of your personality. This may include your strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, inspiration and emotions. Most importantly, you need to be brutally honest with yourself and acknowledge it! You need to admit your strength and also admit your weakness. In other words, it is a battle between who you think you are or who you actually are? Honestly is key! Be ready to face the painful truth, rather than a beautiful lie. What’s work for others may now work for you! Find out your DNA! The next steps are to choose which one you need to focus on! The best option is to go all in on your strength and put the effort in it until it became your bread and butter! If you desire to work on your weakness, it is best you get help to speed up the process to be good at it!

Accountability is a strong sense of responsibility and obligation a person holds. You have to be ultimately answerable to every action you take, no matter whether you are right and wrong. Similar to self-awareness, you have to be brutally honest and uphold the value of integrity! Once you know your strength and belief, you are accountable to sharpen the skills and continue to sustain it! If you encounter setbacks and failure, you have to acknowledge it. Adjust and work on your recovery plan to get back on track. Again, your self-awareness attribute comes into play again. Adjust and execute!

It allows you to accept your weaknesses while focusing all of your attention on your strengths. Then, you got to execute to determine whether that is your weakness or your strength! Finally, you need to take accountability for whether you are right and especially when you are wrong!
