How to Get the Best out of Yourself
It is never too late to get the best out of yourself. You have to visualise yourself doing the best work. Let go of the chaos in your mind and ask yourself how it is that you can achieve your goals.
Not everyone is self-aware. It is often a trait that you must train yourself to attain. Keep an open mind, be mindful of your strengths and weaknesses and set boundaries. Self-awareness is your capacity to understand, be aware and relate. If you’re a manager, self-awareness is having good emotional intelligence and knowing when to use it.

Not all stress is harmful, however, when it starts to affect your health and well-being along with decision-making skills, it is time to address the issue.
