Am I adding or subtracting? Are the people better or worse off because of my presence? Am I a battery for the rest? Or am I just draining their force? Looking yourself into the mirror with these questions isn’t supposed to be comfortable, but those who do are able to adapt their personality traits to become a more pleasant and energizing person to be around. On today’s episode of The MentorBox Podcast, we are discussing self-awareness, and how it relates to likability. To be aware of yourself requires understanding your position in relation to the greater whole.
