Reflect- During week 1 one of the main things you want to do is reflect on 2012 and years past. Look how far you’ve come, how much you’ve improved or not improved, what has changed, what has not changed. Webster defines reflect as to think quietly and calmly. For this challenge I’d like to define reflect as the purposeful action one takes to look on his/her past with all intent to use the observations to fuel his/her future. During the course of this week, I’d like you to reflect. You’ll actually need to set aside time to do this, thoughts in passing won’t give you the results you need. Sit down and meditate on the scriptures below, say a prayer to God to open your ears and eyes to see and hear clearly what you need to see in your reflection time. Then I’d like you to make note of the following:
- high points of 2012
- low points of 2012
- significant events of 2012
- Social Network/Communication Evaluation – take a look at your tweets, fb posts, inbox, texts, etc. and evaluate your consistency. Ask yourself did I portray myself as I wanted? Do my speech, photos, interactions please Christ? Do they make me proud? my family? my partner? CHRIST?
