The Ten Questions That Will Change Your Life and Career

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman

When I coach executives or others who are making career or life transitions, here are the ten questions that help my clients make new discoveries and breakthroughs in their relationships, lives and careers. When faced with a major change in your career or life, I encourage you to ask yourself these questions and journal your answers:

1. Who and what would you be if all of your dreams came true?

2. What prevents you from living fully for what you really want to live for?

3. What unique gifts and abilities do you have that meet some need in your community, business or world?

4. Where do you want to be five years from now that is line with your dreams and those gifts?

5. What are you not doing that you must do to get to where you want to be five years from now?

6. What are you doing right now to get to where you want to be five years from now?

7. How is that working out for you?

8. What must you add to your life to get where you want to be, and what must you let go of?

9. If you added that thing, and you let go of that thing, what is the worst that would happen? What is the best?

10. What is your next step that you will take today to realize your dreams and meet your five year goal?
