As 2018 is coming to an end I like to reflect on how the year went. What was positive, how did I grow and what were the challenges?
2018 was filled with some amazing highs and some challenging times. I remember chatting with a friend while I was going through a particular challenging time this year and she said when that happens to her she asks “Who am I becoming through this?” I thought that was brilliant! It is in the most challenging times that we truly find out how strong we are and what we are capable of.
2018 was a year of growth both personally and professionally. It was also a year of renewal as I entered my 40th year of life! I challenge you as this year is coming to an end to ask yourself the following 10 questions:
What went well in 2018?
What dreams did I work on in 2018?
What was accomplished?
What was challenging in 2018?
Who did I become through my challenges?
How did I grow as a person?
What do I want my life to be like personally and professionally in 2019?
What actions do I need to take to reach my goals and dreams in 2019?
How will I take action and face obstacles and challenges to make it happen?
How is my mindset as I end 2018 and enter 2019?
Leaving dreams up to chance or wishing for them to come true will not make them a reality. Taking time to reflect on the past, learn from what worked and what did not and setting a plan for your future and taking action will set you on a path to your dreams and vision for your life.
