2016 has been a big year. From the presidential elections of the United States of America to the ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement, to Beyonce’s Superbowl performance – a lot of things happened this year. We can only move on to the next year and hope that it will be even better, right?
Every person goes through a journey throughout the year. Things happen that you didn’t expect, you try out new things and you make mistakes. But what is all this for if we don’t learn from it?
Do you think that if you forgot you made a mistake you would do it again? The chances are pretty high.
As we welcome a new year, we have to take some moments to reflect upon what has happened in this year. What have you achieved, what are you proud of, what are you disappointed in, what have you learned? These are all questions that can help you to understand what you have done this year and really make sure to get the most out of your experiences. Because if you take all the knowledge you acquired in 2016 and start the year with that, then 2017 will have to be an even more amazing year.
“Self-reflection is a humbling process. It’s essential to find out why you think, say and do certain things… then better yourself!”
We cannot learn from our mistakes of the past if we don’t look back and analyze what has happened. So today, on the 31st of December 2016, the last day of the year, I urge you to take a moment to think about yourself and your past and what that means for your future.
Happy new year!
