This Will Increase Your Chances Of Career Success

When we started this year, most of us were preparing and thinking about the year ahead, a feeling full of hope, planning, and motivation. Although I am not a fan of New Year resolutions per say, as I believe we should not wait until the new year to make a resolution. But, I do believe there is something magical about this time of the year where we have that inspiration inside of us to do just a bit better (or a lot better) next year, to reflect on what is being left behind, to review our relationships with ourselves and others, and to ultimately just have a bright outlook on the future to come. To keep your momentum going throughout this month and onwards, I have prepared some questions for you to reflect upon to help you get started if you have not started yet or to further solidify your plans if you have already taken off on this path of career (and ultimately life) planning for the near future:  

  • What are some things I am most proud of from this past 12 months?
  • What activities/tasks/interactions gave me energy? (example: delivering workshops, creating content, doing presentations, networking with new people). 
  • What new, positive relationships I have developed this past year? How did they come about?
  • What are top 3 things that made this past year amazing?
  • What are the 3 things I am most thankful for?
  • What are the 3 lessons I learned over this past year? (Personal or professional).

Reflecting on these questions and looking positively at the year that has passed, we can then use this positive energy to continue the path to success (whatever this means to each and one of you) and start the year ahead on a positive note. Once you answer the above questions, you can then answer the following questions in preparation for the year ahead:

  • What are top 3 things I aim to accomplish this coming year? 
  • How will I continue to do things and get involved in activities that give me energy? List at least 2 ways (example: I will make time to volunteer in the community).
  • Which relationships I aim to develop further and devote more quality time to? (can be personal or professional) (example: I will devote more weekends and/or evenings to close family and friends).
  • How will I use/implement the lessons learned from last year in my new year? 
  • I will list 3 ways I am going to be healthier in the new year. (example: sleep, exercise, read).
  • I will list 3 things I would like to work on in regards to personal development in the new year. (example: meditation, quality alone time, aiming for quality in all aspects of life and work).

May your year be filled with health, joy, happiness, and success in all that you aspire to become. If you would like to connect with me and set up a one to one coaching session face to face or via web, please feel free to message me.
