How to Transform Your Life Using the Life Alignment Wheel

I developed the Life Alignment Wheel based on the Wheel of Life, which is great and effective tool for helping you find more balance and success in your life.  In my own experience with the Wheel of Life, I found there were one or two basic conditions that were missing when completing this exercise.

I am yet to meet a person who is consistently and constantly perfectly balanced in their life.  As human beings, for various reasons, we become imbalanced, lose our way, let go of the things that are important to us.

Some of us live our lives according to other people’s expectations or we never truly connect deeply with ourselves to know what is intrinsically important to us.

The Perfect Life

When using the Wheel of Life many coaches encourage their clients to have a wheel that is round, operating at a perfect 10 in all areas of their lives as the graphic shows but is this life or is this perfection?

The “Perfect” Life

The Real Life

I don’t know about you, but at times my life is more like a deflated tire with patches and punctures than a perfect ten with five gold stars.

What do you do when you’re striving for a perfect ten but in fact you just don’t give a damn about a specific area of life, be it money, career, or fun for example.  Does this mean that you strive to be “good” in an area that is of no interest to you? Or do you give up feeling like a failure in your own life?

Making the Life Alignment Wheel Work for You

For those of you who are familiar with my work, or follow me on Facebook you will know that I am always encouraging my clients and followers to live your life! step into you! Know, Speak, Live Your Truth.

None of us can do this when we don’t know ourselves or what is valuable to us.

Let’s assume that you’ve downloaded and completed your life alignment wheel.  If you have been feeling imbalanced in your life, or have a feeling of dissatisfaction or unhappiness about your life, do not become disillusioned now that you have completed your evaluation.

Instead, use it in the same way that Chuck and Mary did to transform their lives.  Let’s look at how they did that.


We know that Chuck hated his job and was really battling to make ends meet for him and his family.  You can see that his life alignment wheel confirmed how he was feeling.  However while he felt like his whole life was in a mess, this was not 100% true as there were quite a few areas that were working well for him.

Completing the life alignment wheel helped to highlight the areas that needed attention but also showed him everything was not hopeless, as he had been telling himself.

Likewise, Mary had a job she was good at and plenty of money but she felt as if stress was killing her.  Her job and financial independence had always been crucial to her but now she realised that her growing dissatisfaction was caused by something else.

Her priorities had changed.  In fact so had Chuck’s.  But neither of them had been paying attention to this.

While they had been paying attention to external motivators, they had lost sight of their internal motivators namely their values.


Bringing it all together

The first thing both Chuck and Mary did was make a commitment to themselves.  They realised that they were not living their lives in accordance with their own desires and ideals.  More importantly, they realised that they had lost touch with who they really were and who they wanted to be.

They knew that if they continued doing the same thing the results would be the same, so they chose change.

Change is never easy, especially when we are stuck in a rut or used to our own excuses, but the when the desire to live a meaningful, purpose driven life is greater than the need to remain stuck we are compelled to move towards our desires.

Chuck and Mary realised that they could go it alone, but this wasn’t their first rodeo.  When they had previously tried to implement life changes, what began with great intentions fell by the wayside because of distractions and life challenges.

It was through discovering the secret that brought it all together that they were able to bring about the permanent changes they both longed for.

Having this great life alignment wheel as a tool and discovering the secret that brought it all together, Chuck and Mary realised that they had nothing to lose by the investing in the Ignite Your Life Program.
