Personal Path Development Program

“Personal Path is a self-paced personal development program for the individual who strongly desires a high quality of life and is willing to make the type and degree of changes, which are usually required.

The program consists of 10 benchmarks or milestones in life – soft, yet very, very rich goals which the going after of fundamentally shifts how the participant relates to themselves, others, and their environment.

The 10 areas are:

A. Inner Peace
B. Personal Power
C. Happiness and Joy
D. Spiritual Bliss
E. Grace and Love
F. Full Satisfaction
G. Natural Balance
H. Personal Passion
I. Vitality and Wellness
J. Fulfillment

This program is designed to be done concurrently with any other coaching program or goal you are working on.


There are four steps to completing the Personal Path Program™.

Step 1: Answer each question. If the statement is true, fill in the circle. If not, leave it blank until you’ve done what it takes. Be rigorous; be a hard grader. If the item does not apply or will never be true for you, fill it in any way. Give yourself the credit you may do this with up to five items. And, feel free to rewrite or reword up to five of the items in this program to better suit you, your needs, and your life.

Step 2: Summarize each section. Add up the number of filled-in circles for each of the 10 sections and write those amounts where indicated. Then add up all 10 sections and write the current total in the first box on the Progress Chart.

Step 3: Color in the Progress Chart Checklist provided. If you have five circles filled in the
Integrity section, color in the bottom five boxes, and so on. Always start from the bottom up. The goal is to have the entire chart filled in. This will indicate how strong your personal path is. In the meantime, you have a current picture of how you are doing in each of the 10 areas.

Step 4: Keep playing until all boxes are filled in. This process takes between six months – five years, but you can do it!! Use your coach or advisor to assist you. And check back quarterly for maintenance.
