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

  1. List up to three situations or periods in your life where you struggled with change.
  2. Describe each situation briefly. What was happening? What change were you trying to make?

Understanding the Impact

  1. Reflect on each situation. How did it impact you emotionally, mentally, and spiritually?
  2. Identify any recurring patterns or obstacles. Are there any common elements that seem to prevent you from making desired changes?

Exploring Possibilities for Change

  1. Consider how things might have been different. If you had the tools or knowledge to handle things differently, what would you have done?
  2. Think about the present. How might these past challenges be affecting your current life or your ability to change?

Looking Forward

  1. Identify what you need for change. Based on your reflections, what resources, support, or knowledge do you think you need to help you change?
  2. 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.
