One area of their life might score a 9 or 10, but other areas may be neglected in the process and only score a 3 or 4. If the wheel is out of balance, it is an indicator that they might not be as fulfilled or satisfied as they could be.
How to Achieve Balance with the Wheel of Life
The wheel is broken into eight pieces, each with a score of 1-10, 1 being not so great and 10 being absolutely ideal.
Wheel of Life Exercise
Make your own Wheel of Life and rank your score in the wheel for each section by drawing a dot in the center line of each section (1 - centre point, 10 - outer circle point), and then join up the dots to see what shape your wheel is. If the wheel you end up with was on your car – how smooth would your ride be?
Get your client to take the same exercise. Each client is different, so will their current wheel. It is ideal that you revisit this exercise with your clients every 6 months and compare the before and after wheels.
