Reflections

1. List the two most important events or circumstances in your life that had a negative impact on your performance as an adult. It may be something you are struggling with to this day.

  • Describe the events or circumstances and how these shaped the adult you are today.

  • List the ways these aspects of your history are affecting your performance in a negative way.

  • Identify “red flags” that will help you become more self-aware of assumptions, beliefs, emotions, or behaviors that limit your effectiveness. Which “red flags” are clues that you are about to “do it” again (whatever your “it” happens to be)?

  • Create an action plan. When you start catching yourself in the act of an old, unwanted behavior or reaction, what can you say to yourself to redirect your thinking and behave more effectively before it is too late?

  • Don’t be discouraged if you backslide. You may be changing a behavior that has formed over a lifetime of experiences. Just keep catching yourself in the act and trying out new behaviors. You do have a choice. You can make significant changes. All it takes is practice. In time, the new behavior will become strong enough to replace the old.
