At the end of each year, and on
their birthdays, many people take time to reflect and look
ahead. If you're one of these
people, or if you would like to start getting the benefits
from a little self reflection, then I have some great
questions for you.
These questions can be looked at once a year, once a month or
whenever you're looking for some direction in your life. I
invite you to take a good hard look at your life more than
once a year. You'll get a lot more out of your life if you're
more conscious about what you're creating.
Some of the questions weren't developed by me and many are
from a terrific book called "Your Best Year Yet: Ten
Questions for Making the Next Twelve Months Your Most
Successfull Ever" by Jinny S. Ditzler. I highly recommend
it if you want to go a
These questions have been designed to help you to take time to
complete the year and to formulate the new year from a clean
slate. By working on the following questions you will complete
this year powerfully so you can have the room to build a new
"me" for the new year.
Looking at this past year:
1. What do I want to be acknowledged for?
2. What did I accomplish?
3. What did I want to accomplish that I did not accomplish?
(Do I still want to do this?)
4. What did I say I would do that I didn't do? (Do I still
want to do this?)
5. Who do I need to be in communication with?
6. What were my biggest disappointments?
7. What did I learn? - List 3 lessons which will make the most
difference if you remember them this year? (See them as
guidelines for next year).
1. How do you limit yourself and how can you transform these
actions to be powerful?
2. What do you say to yourself to explain your failures?
(These false beliefs are your limiting paradigm).
3. List your limiting paradigm.
4. List your new paradigm which must be personal, positive,
present tense, powerfully and simply stated, pointing to an
5. Read your new paradigm out loud when you awake and before
going to sleep each day. Teach your subconscious that this is
1. What are your personal values? What is most import to you
in your life? What drives you?
2. What roles do you play in your life? (List 8 or more). Then
list new ones you want to incorporate into your life in the
next year. Rate each role on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being
the most important.
3. Where is your life out of balance? If you could put one
problem behind you, once and for all, what would it be?
4. Which role is your major focus for next year? ( In what
role do you want a breakthrough performance? If you could put
a check mark by one of these roles at the end of next year
showing, showing that you felt good about how you are playing
that role, which one would it be?)
5. What are your goals for each role?
The way that this works is that for at least a week or two you
ask yourself the above questions. I write them down and do it
in writing several different times. Then after doing that for
all of the above questions you answer one final question:
What do I want to accomplish and who do I want to be in the
Remember the old saying, "If you fail to plan, you plan
to fail." Give yourself the gift of self reflection that
will help you to create the life you really want this year. It
only takes an hour or two. Don't you deserve better than
settling for whatever shows up when fail to plan?...of course
