How has your year been so far?
Are you kicking butt and working through your list of goals for the year or are you struggling with things not going quite to plan? Perhaps you are wondering how to get back on track?
Hopefully, you are making fantastic strides in your year but if you have faltered a little, here are some questions to do some self-analysis on the last six months and have you powering through the next six and yes I will be taking my own advice and working through these questions myself!

Here are 20 questions to ask yourself to get yourself back on track.
1. What task took a lot longer to complete than you expected?
2. What is the main reason your task took longer than you expected? Were you procrastinating, not forward planning enough or did you completely misjudge how long the task would take? Read 12 Reasons You Are Not Moving Forward Fast Enough
3. Was there something that disappointed you and didn’t turn out the way you wanted? If so, how did you deal with the disappointment? Did you work through and release it or is it still bottled up inside you?
4. Did you beat yourself up emotionally for something that didn’t work out? If so, how did you or how can you pick yourself back up again?
One thing that can mess with your success big time is self-doubt. If you need extra help in the self-doubt department, I highly recommend the How to Break The Habit of Self-Doubt and Build Real Confidence online course over at CreativeLive. Mel Robbins runs this course and it’s a game-changer. I took the course this year and got so much out of it. Read my course review to see how it can benefit you as well.
5. Were there any self-limiting beliefs that held you back? If so, what can you do to kick them to the curb going forward?
