The first step in figuring out where you are going in life is to take stock of what brought you to where you are today in the first place. Opportunities no doubt play a big role along our journey, as does our choices in life. However, the direction we are steered by our successes and disappointments along the way are greatly controlled by our  inherent and developed skills, interests and attitudes. Using Shrek's analogy with Donkey, "Onions have layers" ...and so do we. We need get to the core to truly understand the whole. Not often do we take the time to see beyond the surface and miss out as a result. Rarely do take the time to critically analyze our own self, less the "why" behind "what" chemistry makes up our being. This may all sound convoluted, but let's start examining ourselves from an outside looking in perspective by taking the "self quiz" below and see what kind of results
