Honestly Assessing Your Score

Draw a circle in the dotted lines which represents your average score. 4.75. The areas where the score falls below this average, are the areas which requires work and your immediate attention. Your first goal is raising these scores to equal the average score of 4.75.
Once you’ve successfully raised your low scores to the average score, then you’re ready to take the next step, this towards living a more complete life.
Draw a circle which marks the score of your best performing area, which in this case is 7. All areas which falls below this, needs to be raised to that point, in order to achieve balance.
Then begin to strengthen all of these areas in your life which falls below the high score, this to reach a balanced wheel and a completely fulfilled life.
