THERE are many definitions of reflection and there are two definitions that I would like to deal with here. One is to give "serious thought and consideration" and the other one is to "throw back from a surface".
When we talk about reflecting back on our lives are we just giving serious thought and consideration to what we have achieved or not achieved or are we just seeing in our past lives a throw back of what we are now. Are we filtering our entire lives according to where we are at this precise moment in time and just seeing 'stuff' that supports it!
Of course the answer is really in the latter. When we reflect back on our year, our lives, our filters will filter it in accordance with where they are today and how they are thinking, today. So we will have different perceptions on good and bad events in our lives according to when we reflect on them.
I have seen written life histories from people who have re-written them several times over a series of years and, if you read them, you would think they are different people!
So what is the use of this?

WHAT IS IT THAT stands between you and having what you want? - Is it luck? - Do you need a lucky break? - Is success simply a matter of being in the right place at the right time or is it a case of, it isn't what you know, its who you know?
Let me tell you right now that none of these or true. Success is not about getting lucky, and failure is not about being unlucky. I believe it is all about you making the things happen that need to happen.
I once came across a story about a world famous golfer called Gary Player. Player was preparing for a tournament by practising his bunker shots when he was approached by an arrogant millionaire. The millionaire challenged Player to hole one of his next three shots. Player holed not one but two of the next three. The millionaire said "that is just pure luck man" from which Player answered "Maybe, but you know sir, the harder I practice, the luckier I get."
But the difference that makes the difference is ...

WITHIN your business, career, family, finance, health, personal growth, sport, relationships - What specifically would you like to change, as it is, right now?
Perhaps you catch yourself saying "Why does this always happen to me" or "That's just not me."
Do you know what stops you from taking that next step toward something you really want to cause happen?
And also, if you were to know, what drives you forward that gets you closer toward all the things that you really want to make happen?
One of the greatest books I have ever had the pleasure of reading is called - Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr Spencer Johnson. The story is about CHANGE that takes place inside a Maze, where four amusing mouse characters look for Cheese (cheese being a metaphor for what we want in life, whether it is a dream job, big house, flash car, loose weight, better health, etc).
Every single one of us has our own idea of what CHEESE is and we pursue it because we believe it makes us happy. If we get it, we often become attached to it. And if we lose it, or its taken away from us, it can be very traumatic for some.
