'LIFE QUOTIENT' Quiz
(The 'Balance' Test)
(Excerpt from the Life Mastery Course by Mark Fournier)
Studies have shown that ‘having balance’ in EACH of the principle areas of life is one of the most critical requisites of leading a happy, successful, and fulfilling life.
You’ve heard of IQ, which measures your ‘intellectual’ intelligence, and you’ve probably heard of EQ and SQ which measure your Emotional and Social Intelligence.
We’ve now created a simple quiz that measures your ‘Life Intelligence. It measures the ‘quality of your life’ by the degree of balance you’ve achieved’. We call it your Life Quotient, or ‘LQ’, and it may prove invaluable in helping you determine where you will want to focus your energies if you wish to enjoy a truly ‘successful’ life.
As you describe your ideal life in each of the following categories, you are also going to make an assessment of where you are right now in each of these areas, so you can quantify which areas in your life need the most focus and support, and which areas (those with higher scores) can be used to help you increase the scores in lower areas. For example, if you score high in ‘money’ but low in ‘environment’, you can use some of your money to improve your environment.
On a scale of 0 to 10, please rate each of the following areas of your life, with 0 being the least satisfying, and 10 being the most satisfying. Be as honest as you possibly can:
Next, review your scores looking for those that are the same. Similar scores mean that you have achieved greater ‘balance’ in these areas. ‘Balance’ is as important as the actual score, so for every area where your scores are the same (such as a score of ‘5’ in Money, ‘5’ in Career, and ‘5’ in Spiritual), you would double the score for each match, (in this example you would have 15 extra points because all three categories would be doubled, giving them each 5 more points).
Next, tally up the combined score and write down the total here: _______________________
This final number is your Life Quotient. The goal is to first raise this score in the lowest areas by using resources from your highest scoring areas, until they are all more ‘even’. A lower, but more even score in each area is much healthier than an LQ comprised of highly erratic scores.
THIS is in part, what we do with LIMITLESS coaching... we balance your wheel. And once achieved, we begin increasing the scores in each area, doing our best to keep them balanced along the way.
In case you're wondering, the maximum score possible is 200. This would be achieved by reaching a level 10 score in each category totaling 100 points, with an additional 100 points for matching them all.
If you REALLY want to understand where you are... do the exercise below and DRAW the results of your LQ quiz:
