What is the Wheel of Life?
The Wheel of Life is a coaching tool that serves to obtain clarity about the paths a person can take to reach their goals. By goals we mean objectives that cover different spheres of life: work, family, personal, emotional and even spiritual.
It is a very simple tool to use and at the same time very powerful. It is a visual map, so it is very easy to follow and understand. It helps you make your dreams come true. It monitors where is our position, in a certain vital moment, in relation to those dreams.
How to make a Wheel of Life
A trusted professional can guide you through the process, but you can do it too. The steps are the following: on a sheet of paper draw a circle and divide it into as many parts (or areas of your life) as you wish. The drawing should look like slices of a cake.
Then give a value of 1 to 10 in degree of satisfaction for each area, in ascending order. The center of the Wheel of Life is zero and the outermost circle is 10. For example, if one of the areas is HEALTH and you feel very good but you would like to feel even better, you may be able to qualify it with the number 8. If you would like to have a job that you enjoy more and you are currently underpaid, then you could rate the area with a 5.
When you finish evaluating all the areas, you can join the numbers with a line. Ideally if all areas of your life are in balance, you will get a Life Wheel with the ability to “spin”. Otherwise it will look like a kind of strange shape, with spikes and descents.
The Wheel of Life is very personal
It is not about reaching a number 10 in all areas of your life. The idea is to reach a point where you feel inner peace. This tool aims to provide you clarity. Once you discover in which areas of your life you limp and where your strengths lie, it will be easier to prioritize. You will take action from an integral perspective. With a little effort, you will improve every day to enjoy the best of life. Here are some examples of areas you can include: love, work, health, family, spirituality, fun, economy, couple, friends …
