Life Questions

Core Questions

  • Who am I? (What are my core values, beliefs, and priorities?)
  • What do I want?
  • How am I going to get it?
  • How can I be better today than I was yesterday?


  • What is it I believe to be true about myself?
  • Who do I believe I have to be in order to be accepted/acceptable, loved/loveable?
  • Am I masking my true self because I feel that I must prove something to other people?


  • What is the story or narrative of my life that I’ve been telling myself? Is it one of lack or abundance? Does it feature blame, shame, and self-pity or strength, resilience, and hope?
  • Am I taking 100% responsibility for my life and where I am today?
  • Am I satisfied with the outcomes that I’m getting in my life? If not, then I must change something in myself in order to get different outcomes.

Purpose and Behavior Alignment

  • Am I clear about my life’s deepest purpose?
  • How aligned is my life (daily habits, focus, time, career) with this purpose?
  • What systems of discipline do I have for living this purpose?
  • Do I still have passion for my work?

Fear and Resistance

  • What am I afraid of?
  • In what ways do I sacrifice my deepest purpose by allowing fear to take over?
  • What am I trying to control in my environment that is actually beyond my control? What do I need to let go of in order to have more peace and less fear?
  • How are my beliefs, narrative, and unclear purpose driving my fear?
  • How is my fear driving my beliefs, narrative, and unclear purpose?
  • How is this painful loop impacting my procrastination, perfectionism, time management, and self-management, and so on?


  • Be good to yourself
  • Be kind to yourself
  • Be compassionate with yourself
  • And do the same with others
  • Control the controllables and let the rest go
  • Purpose always trumps fear!
