Why does there need to be credit? … I mean, something just is… If there’s a blade of grass growing, who gets the credit for that? Is it nature? Is it the person who planted the grass? Is it the wind that blew the grass seed over there? Is it the bird that didn’t eat that particular seed? I mean, is it the rainfall? What gets the credit for it? … It’s all of the above. (04M)


I also know that there are a lot of epiphanies that I would not be prepared to have. That someone else in the same situation would probably get. (05M)

I give credit to myself for open-mindedness. I give credit to [name] for bringing the pearl. I mean she was the straw, right, that she was the one thing, she tipped it for me. So, I really do give her the credit for bringing it all together. I was just the open receptacle ready, ready for it, right? It’s like when people find God sort of thing, probably not that profound but that’s what it was. (02F)

Analogies Architecture, engineering (e.g., reducing drag on a vehicle) Discovering a new sense (or seeing / hearing for the first time)

Openness to self-discovery

Freedom of choice

Respect and confidentiality

Self-Reflection Exercise


At what points in your life have you felt most…




Recall the details, including the sights, sounds, and emotions (try to re-experience these moments as vividly as possible)

5 – 10 Minutes

Self-Reflection Exercise

Choose a partner – and go to a quiet location on campus

With your partner, share one or more stories related to the topics you just reflected upon:

At what points in your life have you felt most (1) happy, (2) talented, and (3) purposeful?

Pay close attention to whether this exercise produces any epiphanies

Take note of these epiphanies as they arise

Epiphanies can vary in strength

30 Minutes

Self-Reflection Exercise

Take another look at your wheel of life

Consider, once again, your rank ordering

Would you change the ordering in any way? That is, have your priorities shifted in some respect?

Consider, once again, the psychological tensions you’ve been experiencing

Have any of these tensions dissipated to some degree?

Self-Reflection Exercise

With the same partner as before, discuss your observations – and (potentially) your epiphanies – associated with this exercise

Which domain(s) of your life are you now reflecting upon, in light of this exercise?

Did your rank ordering of the domains on your wheel of life change in any way?

Did any of the psychological tensions you’ve been experiencing dissipate to some degree?

10 – 15 Minutes
