					                 Thought-Provoking Questions!
Greetings! I’m excited that you are willing to answer these thought provoking
questions while you search for “It”, whatever the “missing pieces” there are, that
will make your life more complete and help you live your life, your way.

In order for us to get off to a solid start, I would like you to spend some time
answering the following questions. I’m sure that some of the questions will have
you pause and reflect, while others will be easier to answer. If you don’t know
the answer, think about “It” some more. From my experience as a coach, I have
often found that answering these questions is a great starting point to determine
what is most important to you.

Please set aside some quality time to complete each question. These questions are
meant to be thought provoking. Answer them honestly. As they say: Garbage in
Garbage out!

I believe that answering these questions is important. If you can’t answer them,
maybe that is where you need some help finding the answers. I’m really looking
forward to coaching you through this wonderful new adventure while helping
you develop Your WannaWanna Manifesto.
                                                                            Gary

How Smooth Is Your Ride To WannaWanna?
                    I WannaWanna Take My First Step!
                   I have decided “It” is Time to DE-CLUTTER:
                             To Get Rid of “De Baggage”!

      Even in normal living, we put up with, accept, take on, and are dragged down by
      people, situations and things that we ignore rather than fix. Now is the time to
      identify those things that drain your energy for positive activities: Situations,
      unmet needs, crossed boundaries, incompletes, frustration and/or problematic
      behaviors (yours and other people’s). You cannot begin today with a smile on
      your face if yesterday’s garbage is still wafting under your nose.

      As you think of more items, add them to your list. As you are ready, start
      cleaning the “Clutter”. “It” is an immediate way to start empowering yourself
      and feeling that: “You Can Do „It‟!” You may or may not choose to do anything
      about them right now, “bUt” just becoming aware of and articulating them will
      bring them to the forefront. You’ll naturally start wanting to handle, eliminate,
      fix and resolve them. Identify them and get rid of them. You will immediately
      begin to feel better.
