I believe that in order to be successful you need to be in an encouraging environment with people around you who can coach you, question you and guide you. I believe you need to be aware of your strengths and weaknesses to know where you can guide others and when you need to ask for help. You need to set a personal goal in order for you to know that you are traveling in the right direction and keeping that goal in mind will enable you to more easily be able to see if you’ve lost track along the way.
Comparing you to an entire organisation
For an organisation to be successful it needs all different types of people with various competences and personalites to be able to move forward along with the same goal in mind. As an individual you also need this in order to move in the direction you want. Be humble, acknowledge your strenghts and weaknesses when you set your goal. Who do you need around you to encourage you, question you and support you?
