Everyday we ask ourselves many questions such as what should I do today? What should I wear? What should I eat? And so on. But we usually forget to ask ourselves the most important questions which are necessary to give value not only to our day-to-day lives but also in the long run to give us the clarity that we need. We should frequently take a moment for ourselves and think what really holds value for us to find our purpose and motive in this world.
As George Bernard Shaw said: “Life is not about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself”.
Here are simple life coaching questions to ask yourself which you can also ask your coaching clients. These may help you reflect back on your life and make some tweaks. Take some time for yourself, at a calm, quiet place and ask yourself these questions.
5 Life Coaching Questions You Can Ask Yourself Everyday
- Out of 10, How Content am I Today in General?
Take a step back and give yourself a chance to look at your life from a bird’s eye view. Consider all areas of your life and then think of an honest number to allocate. Once you have this, it will be a foundation for you to work on.
- What Type of a Life Do I Have in Mind?
Visualize a life 5-10 years from now. Where do you want to be? Are you satisfied with the life you have then? What changed? What didn’t change? Are you happy with your personal life? Are you happy with your professional life? Are you content health-wise? Imagine an ideal life and try to understand what factors are involved.
- What Would a Successful Life Look Like?
Success looks differently to different people. Some people want to reach peak of their professional career, some want a happy family, some want to travel all over the world etc. Don’t let others dreams and goals affect you. Your life is your dream and something that would bring sense of fulfillment to you.
- What Sparks Joy in Me?
Think about your hobbies, your interests, your passion and your wishes. What is it that you would want to devote more time to? What is it that you wish you did more of? What is it that you want to achieve in life?
- What can I do in the coming time to bring more joy, happiness and sense of achievement in my life?
This is the most important part. It is time to climb the ladder. You have figured out what needs to be done by this step but it won’t make a difference until you act on it. Start with small steps. Get more information about what you want to do. Find support. Make plans.
