Know about SWOT analysis? For those not clued in, SWOT stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. SWOT analysis is a management tool that can effectively be used for one’s personal growth. Take a sheet of paper and divide it into four quadrants. Label each area as S, W, O, T. Write down the answers to the following questions in the allotted quadrant.

What skills and capabilities do I possess?
. Which areas do I excel in?
. What are my unique gifts?
. Which personal qualities, values and beliefs help me stand out?

What negative belief-viruses am I carrying?
. What are the gaps in my capabilities?
. What skills do I need to develop?
. Which areas of my life can I improve upon?
. Which personal difficulties do I need to work through to reach my goals?

. Which opportunities are available to me?
. Which circumstances can help me achieve my goals?
. Which people could offer me support?
. Which tools are available to help me grow?
. What steps am I taking to create changes in my life?

. What obstacles do I currently face?
. Which thoughts can hinder my growth?
. Which fears are holding me back?
. Which people could be a hindrance in my progress?

This analysis will help you highlight the aspects of your growth story that you may not have ever considered. This will provide you with a different perspective on your personality.

Go ahead, review your strengths, and consider ways to address your weaknesses.
