As Within, So Without

These are some of the Self Analysis Test Questions I told you about in an early post of mines about how your self image influences the way you experience life.
  • Do you often complain often of "feeling bad". If so, what was the cause?

  • Do you like you occupation? If not why?

  • Do you face squarely the circumstances that make you unhappy, or sidestep the responsibility?

  • Do you frequently make mistakes in your work? If so, why?

  • Do you deliberately avoid the association of anyone? If so, why?

  • Do you suffer frequently with indigestion? If so, what is the cause?

  • Are you envious of those who excel you?

  • To which do you devote most time: thinking of success or of failure?

  • How many preventable disturbance annoy you, and why do you tolerate them?

  • Do you resort to liquor, narcotics or cigarettes to "quiet your nerves"? If so, why do you not try willpower instead?

  • Do you tolerate negative or discouraging influences that you can avoid?

  • Do you suffer from any of the Six Basic Fears? If so, which ones?

  • Do you encourage other people to bring their worries to you for sympathy?

  • If you believe that "birds of a feather flock together," what have you learned about yourself by studying the friends you attract?

  • How much time out of every 24 hours do you devote to:
    1. your occupation

    2. sleep

    3. play and relaxation

    4. acquiring useful knowledge

    5. plain waste

  • What is you greatest worry? Why do you tolerate it?

  • Are you sarcastic and offensive in your conversations?

  • Could it be possible that some person you consider to be a friend is, in reality, your worst enemy because of their negative influence in your mind?

  • What, above all else, do you desire? Do you intend to acquire it? Are you willing to subordinate all other desires for this one? How much time daily do you devote to acquiring it?


These are some of the questions I extracted from Think and Grow Rich, "a book that one must read over and over again until money starts coming in to their lives."
