Personal Interest - In 2015 I Learned _____

Though it may seem cliche, reflection, particularly self-reflection, is an important practice for personal growth. According to Merriam-Webster, self-reflection is "the act of careful thought about your own behavior and beliefs". Self-reflection can and should be done throughout the year but the beginning of a new year is a great reminder to reflect on past experiences and plan for future goals. 

A great way to start off your self-reflection process is to ask yourself some simple questions:
  • What did I learn in 2015 about: a) Myself b) Relationships c) My career d) My fears

  • What was a significant event that shaped 2015?

  • In 2016, I plan to _____

  • When asking and answering reflecting questions, try to be as open and honest with yourself as possible; anything less, is counter-productive. Take some time to really think back on the past year, your actions, what motivated you, what held you back and how you handled situations that you experienced. Self-reflection should be used as a tool to help you understand your behavior patterns so that you can more accurately navigate through difficulties and seize opportunities in the future. Everyone wants to achieve self-actualization, self-reflection is a great tool for the journey. 

    Some may think that looking back is not necessary, however, our past experiences create our world view and thus shape us. Knowing where we've been and who we are (an understanding of self) is important for our future selves - if you don't know history you are bound to repeat it. 

    In all, try to take some time for self-reflection at the beginning of the year and plan for the goals that you want to achieve in the coming year. The questions above are only the tip of the iceberg - get personal with yourself and see where it goes.
