In our self-exploration and during realising our private life projects, doing a personality SWOT may have very beneficial results for us, as the planning and realisation of all our life tasks rides on being clear about our own personalities.
In order to experience success in all areas of our lives, we have to understand our limits. We need to determine our personality traits which are our strong points, as these will offer us our best chances throughout our lives. Furthermore, we need to identify areas we need to develop further, so that we don’t waste our time by beginning things that won’t yield success, regardless of the number of retries.
If we know our own capabilities and lacking parts, we will become capable of more efficiently work towards our goals. If the personality SWOT is done correctly, it offers a realistic overview of ourselves which may become the basis of successful self-management, All self-management initiatives are processes with five steps. The process starts with naming the goals, after which, we need to identify and measure possible challenges, while taking inventory of accessible resources. If this is done, we may begin the planning phase. If the plan is up, we need to start on realisation, where keeping our motivation is essential.
Furthermore, knowledge of ourselves also serves as a basis for self-confidence, which keeps us motivated. This is essential for us becoming responsible for our decisions and actions. Furthermore, a healthy self-confidence and mature personality will make it easier for us to reach our goals.
Personality SWOT is a tool which we can use to more easily set our priorities, and to create our action plan that helps us in realising our goals.
