  1. What do I love to do in my job? Write down five specific things.
  2. What do I love to do in my free time? Write down five specific things.
  3. What subjects in school fascinated me?
  4. What activities give me the greatest feeling of self-esteem and personal pride?
  5. What accomplishments have given me the greatest feeling of importance?
  6. What am I really good at? What do I think I can be really good at?
