You can also check out Seth’s 10 Dimensions of Wealth Assessment below!

Mission Wealth can help you redefine your definition of wealth, so that you can redefine your life. We believe that wealth is a lot more than just numbers on a balance sheet, it encompasses 10 dimensions: Impact, Emotional, Social, Run, Physical, Spiritual, Intellectual, Career, Family, and Financial. Our 10 Dimensions of Wealth assessment can help you learn more about your wealth satisfaction levels. You may be wealthier than you ever imagined!

How to take the Assessment:

Refer to the wealth wheel and reflect on the following:

  1. Rate each category by your current level of satisfaction as high, neutral, or low.
  2. From these categories, what are your three areas of greatest wealth?
  3. From these categories, what are the two areas that need the most improvement?

These ratings provide an assessment of how fulfilled you feel in each dimension of your life. Think about your assessment and where you feel the most fulfilled and where you could deploy more energy.


Beyond every major success, you’ll find countless missed attempts, oversights and mistakes.  What matters most, is how YOU choose to respond to it!
