If you are not satisfied with your answers, you have the ability to change to make your life the way you want it to be.

This question might be really hard for some of us to answer. Your passion is that thing that gives you fire and pushes you to achieve all you want in life. Knowing what you are passionate about gives you something to work towards. So, find your passion and indulge in it.

Your weaknesses

Have you ever thought about what you are not so good at? Having a weakness is not bad, instead, it helps you to accept what you are not so good at. So, it is okay to have weaknesses. When you find out what your weaknesses are, look for ways to get better.

Your Strengths

As well as having a knowledge of your weaknesses, you need to also know what you are really good at. What skills do you have that you are really proud of? Where do you shine? Think about your strengths and write them down. You might be surprised you are good at so many things.

How do you motivate yourself?

Another important thing to take note of is how you self-motivated. When you are stretched to the limit, how do you push yourself to make progress? You need to know what action you take that can keep you going even when you are not willing to.

Laziness and procrastination are the biggest setbacks to success. Most times our body tends to give in to laziness no matter how hard we try and there is certainly no way you can be happy and successful when you are lazy. Thus, understanding what makes you lazy, gives you a chance to fight it.

What are your values?

Your values are those things important to your life that serve as a guideline. Your values are like a scale you can use to measure your life. This helps you to ascertain the direction your life is moving towards. Your values determine how you make your decisions and tabulate your priorities. By defining your values, you’ll be able to shape your life into what you really want.

Are you quick to quit?

You may have probably thought about quitting at one point in your life. Did you? Well, you are here now hence, focus all your energy towards achieving your dreams and you’ll be happy you did. Quitting is not an option!

What makes you excited?

Excitement builds up when you find something that makes you want more until you are hooked. It comes from trying out new things like food, a new restaurant, meeting new people, etc. Finding out what makes you excited and doing it makes you view life from a whole different perspective.

What kind of company do you keep?

Truth be told, the type of people you hit it off with can either affect you negatively or positively. When you find out people around you are toxic to your growth, success, and happiness, make sure you avoid them.

If you want to live a happy and successful life, find people who you enjoy being around and those who can challenge you to become better.

How do you manage stress?

People find different ways to respond to stress. So, how do you respond to stress? Do you have a meltdown when you are stressed? Or do you become super organized? Find out what you do that helps you cope with stress.

Understanding how you respond to and manage stress can help you keep calm in really stressful situations. In one of my latest videos, I spoke on how Dealing with Difficult Times in Life is a Vital Life Skill.

Where do you derive joy?

If your wish is to live a happy and successful life, then knowing what brings you joy and happiness is important. When was the last time you had a good laugh and you were genuinely happy? Think about what brought about that joy and work towards making yourself happy daily.

How do others see you?

This might seem difficult to answer, nonetheless thinking about how others see you, teaches you things to know about yourself. When you know how others perceive you, you can figure out ways to improve your weaknesses and imperfections.

What kind of environment do you function best?

Your environment can either limit or help you grow. Although you can easily improve your environment until it becomes what you want it to be, it is vital to know the kind of environment that works best for you.

What are you willing to sacrifice to accomplish your goals?

Are you willing to pay any price for your success? It is easier to succeed when you make sacrifices. So, what are you willing to sacrifice to succeed? Is it your health, family, or time?

What’s your personality type?

Have you ever taken a personality test? If you have, great! A personality test gives you some insight into who you really are. Knowing your personality type gives you room to be who you really are without remorse. It can help you get a deeper understanding of who you are.
