Every new year is filled with New Year’s resolutions and things that people want to change about their lives. Most of the time, they just create a resolution by envisioning the “perfect” version of themselves without even taking into consideration the things that they have gone through for the past year.
Neglecting this will only make it easier for you to fail your new year’s resolution. So what you have to do instead is to reflect on the past year, and create a resolution that is connected to what you have gone through and achieved during the year.
Here are some sample questions that you can answer to help you reflect:
Start your reflection by thinking about the best things that happened this year.
- What is the best achievement you have?
- What are the skills that you have acquired?
- What is the one thing that you did this year that you won’t ever forget?
- What is the biggest step you made this year? In relationship, fitness, career, and personal.
- What are the achievements that made you closer to your ultimate long-term goal?
After thinking about the best things that happened, move to the lessons and valuable information that you have learned this year.
- What is the biggest lesson you learned?
- What did you learn about yourself?
- What did you learn about others? Family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and strangers.
- What is the most painful lesson you learned?
- What lessons were you able to impart to someone?
After that, reflect on the mistakes that you have done this year, and the ones that were done to you.
- What was the one thing you wish you never did?
- What was the biggest lie that you said this year?
- Did you hurt anybody this year?
- Were you hurt this year?
- What was the worst mistake that somebody did to you this year?
After reflecting on the achievement, lessons, and mistakes you did, determine what you plan to do moving forward.
- What is your next career step? Personal, relationship, business?
- What is your fitness goal?
- What is the next skill that you will study for?
- What will you do about your mistakes?
- Will you be willing to forgive those who hurt you?
From the answers to the questions above, you can now form your New Year’s Resolution 2.0. The one that you are sure will be staying with you throughout the year.
