Truth be known, it is our top priorities in life that determine our destiny, and the outcome of our personal circumstances. This topic is divided into two parts to not cause any reader overwhelm. There are a series of questions to answer, and take your time with this. If you really want to get to know yourself as a person, and identify what really "makes you tick" - you need to spend a bit of time with this. Success leaves clues right? Happiness is an inside job. Absolutely. The work begins right here, and right now.

Without further ado, let the fun begin.

1. How do you spend your time?

The areas that you spend your time in enjoying the most, are those areas of your life that are important to you. If you work long hours, then chances are your work and/or business is quite important to you. If all you do is party, as opposed to tidying up any unfinished business with your tax returns for example - therefore you'd value social interactions more with others than getting your tax returns filed on time.

2. How do you fill your space?

Look around. If your home is full of candles, incense and pretty objects - it is fair to purport that home decorating, peace and serenity would be important to you. In a working office environment, if you see trophies at a person's desk/cubicle - that person highly values sports and fitness. If you see photos of a team member with their family and/or kids - family life is important to this person. Exactly...how do you fill your space?

3. How do you use your energy?

Us human beings are pumped and so full of energy in performing the tasks that we love and enjoy doing. A social butterfly would be pumped and full of beans at a party, yet could be yawning in a so called 'boring' conference on the flipside. When us humans have a reason to move and spring into action - as Nike says, we "just do it" without the need to procrastinate. Conversely, for the areas of your life that you're procrastinating at/in - there is no spark or interest to succeed in that particular area.

4. How do you spend your money?

People spend their money on things that are most congruent with their personal values. This is where most people have more 'month' than money at the end of each calendar month. In such circumstances, watch out for the fantastic (or not so fantastic) plastic - depending on where being wealthy and financially abundant sits on your priority list. For example, if your kids are a priority - the moment you receive your salary, that money will automatically (in nearly all cases) go towards children's books, shoes and toys to name - with hardly any money left for anything else such as saving it. On the other hand, if your first priority is to buy a house, you will save as much as you can, and before you know it - you'll have the deposit saved up in no time at all. I know, I've been there a couple of times.

I will leave you thinking for a bit, and look out for Part 2 of this series - of which will be published on Self Avenue real soon.
