Hello Awesome Working Woman,
It’s a new year, and people are excited to start over. I don’t personally like to say “start over.” I like to say “continue what I was already working on.” The new year can be a time for reflection and consideration of what you can do better and more importantly, what you are currently great at.
I try to do a self-evaluation at least once a quarter. I said “try” because I am not perfect, and sometimes I forget. I want to share with you an extensive list I have developed to help you create the success you want to achieve this year.
Over the next four weeks we will cover 40 life-changing questions concerning success, having a better life, happiness, and making more money this year. You can answer these questions now and come back to review your answers in April, July, and October to track your progress
Let’s get started, shall we?
- What do I want?
This is the question of the century. Finding something that you are interested in will help you be motivated to take steps that lead to improvement.
- How do I define success?
Do you have your definition of success written down? What does success look like to you?
- Do I need to develop any skills to get to where I want to be?
If so which ones? Are your current skills aligned with where you want to be?
- Do I need to change any area in my life?
What do I need to change? Make sure you are not comparing yourself to anyone else.
- What is the result I want if I do make these changes?
What is the result you are seeking?
- Who do I need to meet with that has the potential to change my life?
It only takes one person to help you get to where you want to be in life. Do you need to hire a coach?
- What am I afraid of?
Remember that nothing happens inside of your comfort box. Success in any form happens when you take a chance on yourself.
- Do I want more?
Suppose for this question that there is no such thing as having too much of anything. The question is whether or not I want more of something than what I currently have.
- Would I be doing what I am doing right now in my life if I knew I only had a few days left on earth?
Most people answer “no” to this question.
- Am I living my best, healthy life?
Let’s face it, success is nothing if you are not healthy.
Grab a journal and take some time to write the answers to your questions. Your answers may surprise you
Now take action! Show this year what you are made of.
Keep winning and creating harmony in your life.

1. I want what many women seek which is being happy, independent and successful in all levels of my my personal and professional life. My main goal raising awareness on bullying and helping people cope and provide them resources and support.
2. Success is defined differently for everyone. For me, discovering my passion in life is one of my successes
3. Developing skills is always evolving. I need to develop patience and better time management. I’m hoping to improve those areas once I’m finished school this semester
4. The biggest area I need to change is my physical activity. I used to be very active but haven’t in over a year. I just can’t make the time anymore.
5. I will be much healthier and sleep better
6. Well, we can always use a coach to live a healthier lifestyle! I could definitely need some coaching
7. Not sure what I’m afraid of. I hate to say it but afraid to fail. I have learned though that it’s ok if you fail otherwise you don’t grow right? Well, I don’t know if I’m afraid or just inpatient sometimes. I have an idea of how I want things to be but it doesn’t always happen on my timeline.
8. I would say of course!
9. Yes! What I am doing every day in one form or another is helping people. I will do that until my last breath
10. Not now but I will!
I wanted to share my responses with this blog community
Wow, Palma, thank you for your candid responses and being authentic. I am happy you were open to sharing your answers with the blog community. I love that you realize that success is what you make it and that finding your passion is a part of success for you. I will also add there is no such thing as time management. We cannot manage something that moves, we can however, manage ourselves in the 24 hours a day that everyone gets. You are a working woman who rocks!
Hadn’t thought about time management that way! You are right hard to manage something is is constantly moving. Well I need to manage my 24 hours lol
Yes, many people don’t think of it that way. We can only manage ourselves.
Hey Marla! Looking forward to hearing more from you !
