Most people wait to
evaluate their lives until there is a major crisis situation. It is
difficult to do an objective self-evaluation during a crisis.
Successful people complete an ongoing self-evaluation. They are able to
know how all parts of their lives are going usually on a daily basis.
There are four questions that will allow you to evaluate the
different parts of your life, your marriage, your family, your work,
your friendships. You must look at each of these situations as it
relates to the four questions. The questions are: How are you doing
today? How do you know thatís how youíre doing? When was the last time
you messed up? How do you know thatís how you messed up? These four
questions require you to know what you are doing right or wrong in any
given situation. They also require you to have specific knowledge of
your judgment. This is a key to success. As a successful person you can
give yourself daily positive and negative feedback. You can have
self-control. You must not wait for someone to tell you if you are
doing it right or wrong. The questions were ďHow are you doing today?
How do you know thatís how youíre doing? When is the last time you
messed? and How do you know thatís how you messed up?Ē
Goals vs. Fantasies: Have you set your goals or are you still involved in fantasy? Successful people set goals and then achieve those goals.
