Everyone’s definition of success and happiness is different.
I’ve met lots of tremendously successful people in my life and I noticed that the one thing they all had in common was a very high level of self-awareness. They knew exactly where they excelled and what their shortcomings were…they knew what holds them back and what spurs them on to success… they have learned to recognize what really matters and what doesn’t.
So, in order to help you become more self-aware, I’ve created this questionnaire. These 20 questions will help you get a deeper understanding of who you are and will take you from where you are to where you want to be.
1) Name 3 things you are really good at (avoid stating generic answers like ‘I’m a good parent/spouse/colleague’ etc)
2) Name 3 things you’re weak in.
3) If money wasn’t an issue, what kind of work would you enjoy doing for the rest of your life?
4) What’s your definition of success?
5) What are the 3 qualities in your spouse/partner that you really admire?
6) What are the 3 qualities in your spouse/partner that you dislike?
7) What is your “love language”? (If you’re not sure what a love language is, read Gary Chapman’s “The 5 love languages”)
8) What is your spouse/partner’s “love language”?
9) On a scale of 1 – 10, how much do you care about what others think of you?
10) What specific behaviour by your friends have made you feel let down or disappointed in the past?
11) If you were in need of help at 3 am, which friends could you depend on?
12) How many things have been struck off your bucket list?
13) What do you love best about your job/business/career?
14) What do you like least about your job/business/career?
15) What’s the one thing you’ve been procrastinating on?
16) Name 3 things that make you angry.
17) Name 3 things that fill you with joy.
18) What’s your biggest regret?
19) What’s the one thing you can do TODAY to avoid future regrets?
20) If you only had another day to live, how would you spend it?
