In this first week of the Psychology of Learning, we explore personal fulfillment and what success looks like for you. We also take a close look at the role of self-awareness, and how to leverage that awareness to keep moving toward your goals. This week’s reading assignments examine the ingredients for success, benefits of self-awareness, and how to examine your own personal strengths.

Take a moment to consider your own strengths and how they relate to your personal goals.

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:
• How do you define success?
• Consider some the ingredients for success (self-awareness, self-direction, self-esteem, and positive thinking). Which of these are the most difficult for you and why?
• Why is it important to understand your own strengths and weaknesses?
• How can becoming more self-aware help you reach your goals?
• What resources do you consider vital to your success (support, mentors, additional skills, etc.)?
