Knowing yourself, who you are and what you are aspiring to be is the essence of whatever you truly desire. One way to discover yourself is to ask yourself questions that will make you dig in your true self.

Here are 5 questions to ask yourself if you want to be successful this YEAR, these questions will guide you on the right path towards achieving your goals and becoming the person you strive to be.

Am I interesting? Those who succeed are interesting people. They constantly experience new things, travel to new places or try new foods. They have opinions on everything and are comfortable sharing it. They step out of their comfort zone – they experience life. People enjoy talking to them because of all they know; they are resourceful, which benefits the quality of people they meet. Cool people stick together.


What makes me special? Who am I? What makes me  happy, smile ? Understanding how unique you are is an essential part of understanding why humanity exists. We are united by our differences, our gifts, talents, callings and dreams.

What is success to me ? Each of us has a different definition of what success is. Defining what it means to you will help you stay focused on your dreams. You’ll draw your own finish line. The worse thing is to live on someone else’s terms just because you don’t know what you want to accomplish in life.

How do I want to be remembered ? In my opinion, this is the best one. Try to visualize the type of life you have lived after you leave this earth. What will people think of you, what will be said when someone mentions your name? Will people say you were selfish and lazy or that you were ambitious and a giving person? Keep that in mind for everything you do.

What am I passionate about ? Find that thing that thrills you above and beyond sleeping, procreating and eating. It is something special to you, important enough to you that you’re willing to do it for the rest of your life. So many people work and live to work in jobs just to pay the bills. Don’t be miserable. Make your passion your full-time job.

When is the last time you asked yourself one of the above questions?


  1. I really enjoyed this post. The questions you listed are very significant as we think about how we want our lives to look. Like you, my fav question is #4. I want to build a legacy that outlives me and I want to remembered as a woman who chased her dreams and pursued them while inspiring others along the way.

  2. Thanks for this #BLMGirl! It was super helpful — especially the reminder to use my particular style of writing//voice to help me stand out. I’ve come across (lately) what I’ve seen on social media as dupes of ideas I’ve done, language or expressions I use, and ideas I’ve shared. I try not to get annoyed, but it really lights a fire in me to be more aggressive with my branding so I stand out amidst all the noise. Thank you!
