Before knowing where you want to go (and hopefully take your constituents with you), you need to understand you and where you stand in the ideological spectrum.

Politics is a dirty and difficult game. To really succeed you need to be tough, resilient, resourceful, and have abundance of emotional intelligence. But if politics -the generic kind is that demanding, the transformational or liberation politics is a thousand times harder. To succeed on it, one needs to be truly grounded on their belief system, what motivates them and what they have chosen to be their raison detre on this earth.
