All of us want to delve deeper to better understand who we are and what we want out of life. We are all looking to “find” and “define” ourselves.
It’s easy to get caught up in the world around us and to get bogged down by daily stressors. Doing this can create a negative cycle that causes us to lose ourselves…until one day, we wake up and don’t know the person looking back at us in the mirror.
People who constantly look at who they are in a positive reflection and introspection can live happier, less stressed lives.
In this article, we give you a list of questions to help you reflect on where you are today versus where you would like to be in the future.
There are five key areas of life to evaluate: career, community, relationships, health, and fulfillment. We’ve split up these questions into three sections: past you, present you, and future growth.
We recommend reflecting on one area per day for the next seven days. This will help you slowly and methodically come to a deeper understanding of yourself without feeling overwhelmed.
As you go through these thought-provoking questions, let your mind wander. Jot your thoughts down in a journal. Don’t worry about form or clarity, just write whatever comes to mind. This will help you keep a record of your development moving forward.
You may start to ponder these questions over the next week. In fact, you may find that you start to come to surprising realizations at unexpected parts of the day even when you aren’t actively reflecting.
Day 1: Career
Day 2: Health
Day 3: Community
Day 4: Relationships
Day 5: Fulfillment – Past
Day 6: Fulfillment – Present
Day 7: Fulfillment – Future
After you’ve finished these questions make sure to take time for yourself. Do something that makes you happy.

Think of this reflection as a redirection- you don’t need to have all the answers. Simply acknowledging who you are is the first step towards growth.
