Identifying What’s Holding Your Back

You have your Big Picture Dream, now it’s time to make it, and of course YOU, your own priority.

One of the easiest ways to do this, is to identify if there are any noticeable energy leaks, or drains on your time, intentions, passions, and Big Picture Dream.

You can use the Your SHEro’s Journey Assessment Wheel to identify if you are living your life in alignment with your passions and purpose, or fighting off energy drains.

The SHEro’s Assessment Wheel is based on a traditional coaching tool called the Wheel of Life.

You could include the following Five areas, these are your SHEro P.O.W.E.R’s:

  1. PRIORITISE – How well are you prioritising yourself, your needs and your dreams?
  2. OWN – How well do you acknowledge, use, and nurture your gifts and skills?
  3. WORTH – How well do you value and nourish yourself and how often to make time for yourself?
  4. EMBODY – How often do you speak up and make your voice heard?
  5. RELEASE – How easy is it for you to trust in something bigger than yourself?


Then choose another 3 areas of your life that are important to you, or choose from these:

  • Health and Fitness
  • Family and Friends
  • Finances/Wealth
  • Career
  • Fun and Recreation
  • Physical Environment
  • Personal Growth
  • Spiritual Growth
  • Contribution


Or use the values that are important to you, for example:

  • Love
  • Honesty
  • Appreciation
  • Compassion
  • Respect
  • Unity
  • Integrity


Once you have chosen 5, write them onto the Wheel below, and rate each area out of 10.

0 = Not satisfied with area at all

10 = Fully satisfied

The lower the number, suggests the more of an energy leak/drain you have in that area, and the need for firmer boundaries.

Assign each area colour, and colour in the relevant number of rings.

This will then give you an overview of where you currently are in your life, what’s working well, and what needs your attention
