How do I choose to define success or failure for myself? What makes me happy? What is my target monthly income? Where would I like to be financially in the next 10 years? Where would I like to be financially when I finally retire (or do I even want to retire)? What do I want to do with any excess wealth that I have? (defined as anything more than what is required to meet my basic monthly needs). What makes me feel secure? How would I define my current level of faith? Am I feeling more optimistic or more pessimistic today? Is my mood realistic? What blessings are in my life or a part of my life story? What disappointments in life continue to impact me? What am I missing right now that a more humble person might see? What am I avoiding, or running from? Is this a challenge I can resolve with a little effort? What makes it seem so overwhelming to me? What do I need to be contemplating? If I were reading this 20 years from now, and reflecting on the events of the past 20 years, what has to have happened to me for me to feel that I have lived a successful life? What challenges need to be overcome? What opportunities need to be captured? What strengths do I need to leverage?
