Thanks for this post.
A while ago, I took a personality test on this website: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp
. It may not be 100% accurate, but it gives you a pretty good idea of who you are. The test did tell me that I value relationships and they are the ultimate resource of my motivation and inspiration.
It is true. When I am down and feeling unmotivated, I turn to my friends, family and mentors. When I have a goal, I share with them just to make it official. That way, everyone including myself is counting on me to achieve the goal. The biggest advantage of doing this is that they will support you and encourage you, and make sure that you stay on track!
