Worksheet: Understanding Your Challenges
This tool is designed to help you explore past challenges and understand how they might be affecting your ability to change. The insights you gain can be a starting point as you embark on this journey of transformation.
Identifying Past Challenges
- List up to three situations or periods in your life where you struggled with change.
- Describe each situation briefly. What was happening? What change were you trying to make?
Understanding the Impact
- Reflect on each situation. How did it impact you emotionally, mentally, and spiritually?
- Identify any recurring patterns or obstacles. Are there any common elements that seem to prevent you from making desired changes?
Exploring Possibilities for Change
- Consider how things might have been different. If you had the tools or knowledge to handle things differently, what would you have done?
- Think about the present. How might these past challenges be affecting your current life or your ability to change?
- Identify what you need for change. Based on your reflections, what resources, support, or knowledge do you think you need to help you change?
- Write down one action step. What is one thing you can do in the next week to start addressing this challenge?
Remember, change is a journey, not a destination. Be patient with yourself, and remember that every step, no matter how small, brings you closer to transformation.
