Re-evaluating yourself

By: Diane Lang 
Every few months. we should take some time to re-evaluate and check in with ourselves. This can be done by asking yourself some questions and being honest with the answers. Once you finish the questions, you can have some clarity on what’s working and what’s not working in your life and you can make changes from there.

Let’s look at your life and ask yourself these questions:
1. Is my health where I want it to be? What do I need to do and change to have a healthier lifestyle?

2. Am I financially where I want to be? What do I need to make financially to be happy?
Be careful on this question. More stuff does not mean more happiness.
Ask yourself, how much money do I need to make to pay my bills and create memories and experiences?

3. Do I have a career or a job? If you have a career in something you love and fits your purpose in life, that’s wonderful. However, consider this: do you have a job that allows you to live out your purpose and meaning in life? I have a client who has a job that is just OK, but this job allows her to travel and take pictures of exotic places. Photography brings her that sense of purpose and passion and her job allows her to do this.

4. Am I being the best person I can be? Am I helping others? Being a good leader? Mentor? Coach? Role model? Parent?  What will your footprint look like?

5. Am I living my own life? Is this the life I wanted or am I living a life my parents wanted for me?What society says I should do? What comes easy? Make sure the life you’re living is the one you wanted.

6. Am I having fun? Socializing? Smiling? Laughing?

7. What brings me happiness? What does happiness look like? Feel like?
Write a list of 5 -10 things that make you happy.
Does your life match the list?
Make sure you schedule in a few activities that bring you happiness each week.
