Where Am I Now?

Before imagining where you would like to be, it’s helpful to take stock of what you love, like or dislike about your life now.

Mark’s Guidance

“My time as a navigator taught me if you are not sure of your destination, then you will never reach it. When you know where you are located, you can plot a course towards your dream life. Be kind to yourself, but make sure to be honest too. A great question to ask yourself is this: ‘If my life ended tomorrow, would I die satisfied with myself and the life I lived?’”

Asking Key Question

All of us are the sum of our experiences in life—our upbringing, schooling, and relationships.

All of these colour who we are. Some of these experiences can have a negative influence on us and until we acknowledge and identify them, learn and feel the lessons from them, they will continue to do so, subconsciously repeating behaviours of old that may not serve us and indeed may have a negative impact on our lives.

So, in order to create the life we want, we need to understand where we are and be specific about the changes we need to make towards living that life.

Life is an abstract entity, but it’s possible to define certain areas, such as work, relationships, family, friends, home life, accommodation, inner peace. Most of us find we are are very happy in some of these areas, yet there are others we would like to change. Asking the following key questions will help you understand where you are now.

1. Answer the following questions to discover how you feel about your life:

Are you happy with your home life?
If yes, why? If not, what changes would you like to see?
