Life series - Selfie Moment

Life series... #ActivateYourself #SelfieMoment#SelfAwareness June being my favorite month, it is the same month I take a moment to reflect where I have come from, where I am and where I need to be. I would like to share part of what I do, as I understand we are all in some form of transition and so is life by design. I would like to encourage you in whatever situation you are in don't let things happen to you, but rather strive to make things happen for the better. 

Sometimes it's those simple things we ignore that can change our mindset and behavior in the right direction for example, reading a book, making an action plan, self evaluation, trials, partnership, learn a new skill, helping someone etc. "Until you understand yourself, everything will look like impossible even when it is not." Wilson Masaka -Youth Advocate & Social Entrepreneur. 

Here are the 16 key questions you need to ask yourself if you want to make that change for the better
  1.  What do I want? 
  2. What do I need? 
  3.  Who do I want to become in future? 
  4.  What do I need to do? 
  5.  Who is in my support network that can help me achieve what I want? 
  6. How do I kickstart my journey? 
  7. Do I need a coach or a mentor? 
  8. When do I Start, Stop and Continue (SSC analysis)? 
  9. Why do I do what I do? 10. What is my worth (employment prospects)? 
  10. Who are friends and what do they do? 
  11. What makes me happy? 
  12. What do I have? 
  13. How does success look like to me? 
  14. What failures have I encountered and what lessons did I pick? 
  15. What is a MUST Do to achieve my goals? 
  16. How do I spend my time 24/7? Any pattern that needs to be maintained or changed? 
  17. What is my ideal job or rather career? 
  18. If I had a million (whatever the amount) what would I spend it on? 
  19. How does retirement looks like to me? And what do I need to do today to secure that future?
  20.  What makes you stand out from the rest? Your Unique Selling Points what we call the USP that you can use to pivot towards your success.
