I have many similar characteristics with the qualities associated with being a Mission Specialist, all that would be beneficial to being a Mission Specialist. I am also creative which would further help the problem solving aspects needed to be a Mission Specialist. However, I am not very well coordinated, quiet, and shy which all would be detrimental to being successful as a Mission Specialist.

I need to improve my...

Coordination, Quick Decisions, Communication with Others,

As a "first step" to taking action to transform my negatives into positives I need to put myself into situations where I have room to grow, change, and practice new skills. To practice my coordination, I can learn to play a new sport like tennis. Because I am quiet and shy, I am sometimes overlooked with it being hard to be heard over everyone else. By making myself do more things and talk to all kinds of people, I can gain the skills to change my negatives into positives.
