Personal Coaching Quiz

Are You Satisfied With Your Life?

The Quality of Life Index includes 25 questions that indicate your quality of life.

Instructions: Choose Yes or No for each of these 25 questions. Then, decide if there's a gap between where you are now and where you want to be.


  1. I have at least a year's living expenses in the bank or money-market fund.
  2. I look forward to getting up virtually every morning.
  3. I don't spend time with anyone who bugs me or who is using me.
  4. I am both pleased and content with my spouse/partner, or happy being single.
  5. I take at least 4 vacations a year.
  6. I could die this afternoon with no regrets.
  7. Life is easy; I have virtually no problems or unresolved matters affecting me.
  8. I spend my leisure time totally enjoying my interests; I am never bored.
  9. I am on a financial independence track or am already there.
  10. I have a circle of friends who I have a blast with, without effort.
  11. My work/career is both fulfilling and nourishing to me; I am not drained.
  12. I love my home; Its location, style, furnishings, light, feeling and decor.
  13. I tolerate very, very little; I'm just not willing to.
  14. I am living my life, not the life that someone else designed for me or expected of me.
  15. I don't see a cloud on my future's horizon; it looks clear to me.
  16. I don't have to work at financial success; it seems to find me with very little effort or pushing.
  17. My wants have been satiated; there is little I want.
  18. My personal needs have been satisfied; I am not driven or motivated by unmet needs.
  19. Weekends (or other days off) are a joy for me.
  20. I have more than enough energy and vitality to get me through the day; I don't start dragging.
  21. I have designed the perfect way to spend the last hour of the day.
  22. I am able to stay present during the day; I don't lose myself to stress, adrenaline, caffeine or other drugs.
  23. There is nothing that I am not facing head-on; nothing that I am putting up dealing with.
  24. I have designed--and am living--the perfect lifestyle for me right now.
  25. I have no financial stress of any kind in my life
