Understanding the Wheel of Life

The Wheel of Life is a visual representation of different aspects or dimensions of one’s life. Typically, it consists of career, relationships, health, personal growth, finance, and more. Each category is assigned a segment on the wheel, and individuals rate their level of satisfaction or fulfilment in each area.

Using the Wheel of Life for Self-Coaching


Take time to introspect and assess your level of satisfaction in each category. Be honest and objective in your evaluation. 1-10 when 1 is low satisfaction and 10 is highest.

Goal Setting:

Based on your reflections, identify the areas that require attention. Set clear, achievable goals for improvement.

Action Planning:

Break down your goals into actionable steps. Create a timeline and plan of action to ensure steady progress.

Regular Evaluation:

Periodically revisit the Wheel of Life to re-assess your satisfaction levels. Use this reflection as a guide for continued growth.

Celebrating Progress:

Acknowledge and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. This reinforces a positive feedback loop and motivates further progress.

  • Be honest and objective in your self-assessment.
  • Prioritize categories based on your current life circumstances and aspirations.
  • Set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) goals for meaningful progress.
  • Regularly review and adjust your action plan as needed.
