Ahh, we’ve come to the end of 2014, with all its challenges, learnings, growth and gifts. The end of the year is a great time to reflect and review. I suggest taking some quiet time with your journal to consider these Coaching questions about the past year.

  • What was 2014 about for you in career, love, friendships, family, money, fun and recreation, personal and spiritual growth?
  • What was great about 2014?
  • What was your biggest struggle and what did you learn from it?
  • What do I want to let go of?
  • What did you love?
  • What will make 2015 better?

Coaching inspires you to find your own best answers by asking powerful questions. There is magic in asking questions because any time you ask a question, your mind will go find the answer- even at the unconscious level. Asking powerful questions creates clarity and helps you tap into your wisdom within. It can direct and focus your attention, solve problems and challenges and inspire you to your next level.

As you reflect on 2014, with these questions, what have you learned from 2014 that you want to take forward into the New Year?

This year for me I found resources I had lost, I found a stronger commitment to my path, I learned to appreciate consistency, learned more patience and greater ability to enjoy the ride. I released a grudge I didn’t know I had. This year for me  went from good to SPARKLE! As I look back, I smile at myself and have compassion for everyone else out there on the journey. I also found my love expanded with my nieces and nephews, my family, clients, the community and new friends. And the phrase -” it’s all good” has taken on new meaning.

May you feel complete with your year. May you be at peace with your choices and trust in yourself to follow your path of your highest learning. It’s all learning. May you let go of what’s not working and take the best with you into the New Year. May your life reflect the brightness within you. My heart is full for all of you out there who shared my year with me.

And to all of you out there – Let’s get ready to rock it in 2015!

Share 1-3 things, you learned from 2014 and what you want to take with you into the New Year in the comments.

Here’s Goodbye to 2014 and Hello to a Brand New Year!

One Response to “Reflecting on the Year”

Great Post Holly, I find myself wanting to sit down with my journal, just like you suggest, and write the answers to your questions.
This year I learned to be more thoughtful about other people’s feelings, no matter how much I think I know them. I also learned that I can accomplish things that look almost impossible or very alien to me.
I would like to take a strengthened ability to meet new people and make true friends with me into the new year.
Happy New Year, may it bring all that you hope for!
