Critical thinking about yourself and your life Kick-Ass Questions About Life... Describes how you want to live your life -

Every student is different.

You never know how you (or someone
else) will impact a student.

Be willing to live with the fact that
they'll get "it" - at some point.

Keep trying - one person at a time! What's always on your mind? What do you think about a lot? What angers you most about the world today? What issues really pisses you off? What positive things do people say about you? What do people think you for most often? Who inspires you? Who would you most like to be like? Who are your heroes, your role models? What do you help with that seems natural or easy for you? What do people come to you for? When you're at your best, what does it look like? What are you amazing at doing (can be work- or life-related)? What are you great at? When do you feel powerful, passionate, free, incredibly useful, excited, and/or inspired? Who do you want to help? Who would you like to inspire? If you had a chance to be known for something special or unique, what would it be? How would you like to be seen, recognized, acknowledged, awarded, or praised - now and/or in the future? Bill Johnson

Answers for this exercise will be used for next/last exercise . Instructions:

Using your answers from the previous exercise, write a statement that's future focused - how you want to live your life, how you want to help other people, how you want to play every day.
