Reflection: A Powerful Tool for Transformation

At the time I am writing this, I am a few short weeks away from celebrating another year of life. This is always a special time for me. In the weeks leading up to my birthday, I take time to get my journal and reflect on the last year of my life. This time of reflection always leads to powerful moments of awareness, results in epiphanies, and also facilitates my growth, development, and maturation. I do not just want to get older. I want to grow in love, wisdom, and truth with every year of my life. I want to share a few insights with you about the power of reflection and how it can transform your life.

  1. You should take time regularly for reflection. As I just shared, I am a few weeks away from celebrating another year of life. During the weeks leading up to my birthday, I always set aside some time to think, reflect and assess my life. I look for the lessons I have learned, I scrutinize how my experiences have shaped me in the last year and I evaluate whether or not I have maximized moments in my life. Most of all, I ask myself one critical question: how have I grown and evolved in the last year? This exercise has transformed my life and served as a powerful catalyst for goal setting, life shifts, and personal growth and development. If you are not taking time to reflect, I encourage you to make this a regular part of your life. If you never take the time to reflect, you will inevitably repeat cycles in your life and live dominated by regrets. Reflection is powerful because it empowers us to make adjustments and accelerate the course of our lives.
