It takes a few good traits to work towards reaching a goal. Here are a few questions to get you thinking about the personality traits you possess. See where you rank in the area of good personality traits.

When it comes to working towards a goal I am:

  • Like a dog with a bone, or
    • Enthusiastic like a slug
  • Always looking for the positive, and get excited for what is ahead, or
    • Thinking of all the reasons why it won’t work
  • In a rush to get things completed, I can always come back later and fix things, or
    • Methodical and thoughtful. I work in a step-by-step approach to reach my goal
  • Strong in my beliefs. No one and nothing will keep me from achieving my goal, or
    • Always waiting for the other shoe to drop. There is always something that will stop me from doing what I want.
  • Willing to learn and ask others for help. I will learn from my mistakes along the way and not look at them as set-backs. I am going to ask for help. I will look for anther person who has walked in my shoes and succeeded., or
    • Going to grin and bare it. I will get to my goal without any help

After reading the list above what do you think it takes to get you to your goal? Let’s look a a few traits. Ask yourself if you have them. We all need to continually work on these good traits. They are like a muscle, they have to be exercised in order to mature. Below I have listed a quote or two for each of these personality traits.
