As we reach the end of the year and contemplate starting a new one (even a new decade) it can be enlightening, and very beneficial, to take
your yearly internal inventory.
It’s a great way learn, grow and start anew.
So, grab a journal, spend a few quiet minutes with yourself, and use these
9 questions to tally up your year:
1. In what ways has 2019 been successful?
(Was it in your career, your relationships, your health & wellbeing, your spiritual life or something else?)
2. What has changed for you externally?
(If there's one thing that's constant, it's change. What's changed for you this year and how do you feel about that?)
3. Have you changed any of your beliefs this year?
(Maybe through reading, learning, or through a specific person or incident - have you taken on any helpful new beliefs?)
4. Which ones do you still need to work on?
(What are the recurring stories, patterns and beliefs in your life that you'd still like to shift?)
5. What emotions come up for you when you think about this year?
(Are there one or two over-riding feelings that you've experienced over this year? Are they mainly positive or negative?)
6. What did you most love about this year?
(This is one of my favourite questions but it can be hard sometimes.)
7. What's been the hardest thing about this year?
(This human condition can be really tough at times. Acknowledge yourself with compassion for this one.)
8. What's your intention or resolution for next year?
(Again, is this in your career or working life? Or maybe your relationships, health, spirituality?)
9. Can you think of one word for next year?
(Mine for 2019 was Faith. What's yours for the year to come?)
Once you've completed your yearly internal inventory remember to give yourself a huge pat on the back for all your growth, lessons completed, for keeping on keeping on, and for your courage and unique spirit.
