Reflecting on Your Accomplishments


By Shelley Whizin


As the year draws to a close, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the past twelve months and the accomplishments we have achieved. Looking back at our successes not only allows us to celebrate our achievements but also provides valuable insights and inspiration for the upcoming year. In this article, we will explore the importance of reflecting on our accomplishments and how it can help us pave the way for a successful new year.



  1. Celebrating Milestones: Take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate the milestones you have reached throughout the year. Whether it’s a personal or professional achievement, big or small, each accomplishment deserves recognition. By acknowledging your successes, you cultivate a sense of gratitude and motivation, which can fuel your drive for future endeavors. It’s always easier to see where we have faltered. 

Now is your opportunity to celebrate what you have accomplished and build on those experiences.


  1. Learning from Challenges: Reflecting on the challenges you faced during the year is equally important, however, don’t get stuck there. These obstacles do hold valuable lessons that can shape your growth and development, but it’s important not to feel like a failure. Consider the hurdles you overcame and the lessons you learned from them as new ways of perceiving. Embrace the knowledge gained from these experiences and use it as a steppingstone towards future success.


  1. Setting New Goals: Looking back at your accomplishments can provide clarity and direction for the new year. Take the time to evaluate your current position and identify areas where you would like to grow or improve. Set realistic and achievable goals that align with your values and aspirations. By setting clear objectives, you create a roadmap for the upcoming year, increasing your chances of success. Let yourself dream up what you would love and then take the steps towards what you want, instead of going away from what you don’t want.


  1. Building on Strengths: Reflecting on your accomplishments allows you to identify your strengths and leverage them in the future. Take note of the skills, qualities, and attributes that contributed to your achievements. By recognizing your strengths, you can focus on honing and utilizing them to propel yourself forward in the new year.


  1. Embracing Gratitude: Gratitude again plays a significant role in personal growth and happiness. As you reflect on your accomplishments, express gratitude for the opportunities, support, and resources that have contributed to your success. Remember, that cultivating a sense of gratitude not only enhances your overall well-being but also attracts more positive experiences into your life. 


Looking back at your accomplishments and setting goals for the new year is a powerful practice that can shape your future success. By celebrating milestones, learning from challenges, setting new goals, building on strengths, and embracing gratitude, you pave the way for a fulfilling and prosperous year ahead. As December unfolds, take the time to reflect, appreciate, and envision the possibilities that lie ahead.
