Self Empowerment Evaluation
Evaluate Your Current Stress Level
This activity serves as an indication of your current sense of self empowerment. Try to be as honest as possible in answering the statements. Answer them according to how you actually feel or behave and not how you think you should feel or behave.
Score each statement according to how true, or the amount of time you believe each statement is true for you:
The possible range of your Index is from 0 to 100. A strong sense of self empowerment is indicated by a score of 95 or more. A good sense of self empowerment is indicated by a score of 90-94. Experience shows any score under 90 is a disadvantage, a score of 75 or less is a serious handicap, and a score of 50 or less indicates a serious lack of self esteem.
Scores of between 75 and 95 can be improved with good coaching. Improvement of self esteem in the range of 75 and less would be more appropriately handled with a licensed, competent therapist.
The good news is that with care and attention, your level of self empowerment can be developed to levels that greatly enhance your enjoyment of life.
On a scale of 0 to 4, rate how strongly you identify with the following statements-with 0 being the least applicable, and 4 the strongest. The more strongly you identify with the statements, the higher you score. Rank the statements according to how you actually feel or behave, rather than how you think you "should" feel or behave.
Your stress index will be between 0 and 100. A score of 5 or less indicates an exceptionally low level of stress. A score of 20 or less indicates a favorable level. A score between 20 and 50 indicates a definite obstacle to your well-being. A score over 50 indicates a damaging level of stress if sustained over time can lead to emotional distress and physical illness.
A coach can help you deal with many of the areas indicated above. Some of the ways a coach can help include helping you discover and focus on your sense of purpose, help you take actions toward goals you desire, and increase your sense of empowerment, competence and personal mastery.
