Identify Your Experiences
Step 1 of 2

This activity will take you approximately 10 minutes.

Take a moment to think about things you've done that make you feel proud.

These experiences could have taken place recently or some time ago. They could be drawn from any area of your life:

  • Work
  • Home
  • Learning
  • Volunteering
  • Leisure activities

Choose experiences where you did something and were proud of the result. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thought about the experience or even if anyone else knew about it. The important thing is that you did it, and it made you feel proud.

It isn’t always easy to think of experiences that are significant to you. Take as much time as you need to complete this exercise. You can always enter some information now, save it, and return later to add more details. Include as many details as you can about what you did, why you did it, and why it made you feel good.

In each of your stories:

  • Look for clues about your personal characteristics. For example, were you… a positive thinker, co-operative, courteous, dependable/reliable, persistent...
  • Identify any knowledge, skills and abilities you had to use. 
  • Identify any interests, values, or beliefs your stories may indicate.
