List 10 achievements that you are proud of. While you will have celebrated things like graduating high school, university, getting married, becoming a parent, exceeding revenue targets or creating great products you probably tended to more quickly past (or devalue) many other really positive things you have achieve. Take the time to take stock of your achievements as they will help create a greater representation of WHO you are in our strategy.
Your likability - everybody has things about themselves that they love and make them feel good. You will have personality traits, beliefs and values, or even some things you say and do that you like about your self are complimented on and attract people to you. There will also be things that tend to work in the servers … things that you don’t like, are no enjoyed by others and attract the wrong people and experiences.

Your Personal SWOT.This is a highly valued tool used by organisations to get insights into their position and prospects at a point in time. It will also do the same for you. You are most likely to uplift your level of being if you focus your energy on using your talents to their fullest extent and taking advantage of what is available to you. Similarly, you'll encounter fewer challenges if you know what your weaknesses are, if you minimise these and prepare for and overcome potential threats. A personal SWOT (strengths, weakness, opportunities & threats) is a very useful tool to help you get a clear and precise picture of who you are now (internal) and what you are reacting to (external). Think carefully and make a long list for each on separate paper, then hone that down and write the top three only for each. This tool will be significantly more valuable when you go through the process of simplifying and identifying your core messages.
Let’s say in 10 years time the editor of the most prestigious magazine asked if they could do a feature story on you. You are very honoured, as this has been your dream for a very long time. What would the story say? Write down the title, intro and the first couple of paragraphs about what they would say about you in 10 years time. Think about all the things you would have achieved by then, all the people you’ve helped and the difference it has made in the world.
