Too often, we compare ourselves to others and that causes more harm than good. We also have a tendency to know and take stock of all of our shortcomings, forgetting that we have just as many if not more qualities.

This is why it’s important to know what your best qualities are and to put them forward. We should all be able to enumerate our top five qualities without hesitation.

My top 5 are:

  1. Problem-Solving Skills
  2. Self-Motivation
  3. Passionate
  4. Compassion
  5. Humour

Just for the fun of it, I asked a friend who has known me for almost 30 years what in her opinion are my top 5 qualities. Here is what she said:

  1. Witty/Humour
  2. Patience
  3. Organization
  4. Creative
  5. Passionate

What are your top 5?
