“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” Aristotle
You are more likely to succeed in your endeavours and achieve your dreams if you are aware of your personal strengths, your weaknesses, the opportunities that may arise and the possible threats along the way.
You can find many online material to help you compile your SWOT analysis, but here are a few questions to get you started.
What do you do well?
When you are performing at your best, what do you notice about yourself?
What additional strength can you add to your list?
Where do you see your areas for development?
What causes you most concern about yourself?
If you could select one area for personal development, what would that be?
What opportunities do you foresee?
How are you viewing these opportunities?
What is the most obvious opportunity that you could take advantage of?
What is likely to cause you personal imbalance?
What has created a threat for you in the past? How likely is this now?
What threats present themselves from your list of weaknesses?
I hope these questions will help you get a clearer idea of where you are now and give you a good starting points to set your goals and possible actions.
Take control of your life!
