FYI | Day 31 – Recap and Reflection

Share if you dare:                    
For Your Inspiration! (FYI!) Month 2011 – This article was part of an exciting and challenging month dedicated to discovering passions, setting goals, learning success strategies, and sharing thoughts to ponder throughout the day!  If you’d like to find out what this month was all about, check out FYI Month 2011 for more information!

FYI: For-Your-Inspiration Month!

For Your Inspiration (FYI) Month is coming to an end! It has been a great month … and a busy one at that! Before we jump in today, let’s review some of the areas we’ve covered this month.

We’ve talked about various life success strategies…

We’ve analyzed positive and beneficial traits including:

As well as a few fun random topics such as:

Were you around for all of this?  If you made it through the entire month I applaud you!  Hopefully you enjoyed yourself and learned a few things along the way!


We can read read read, and do do do, but not making time for personal reflection limits our personal growth.

We can read about personal development all day until we are blue in the face, but it is completely futile unless we take the time processing what we have learned and put it into action!  Everything you read, every piece of advice given, and everything you learn needs to pass through you own B.S. Filter to discover what is true and right for you.

Did you attempt the tasks suggested?  Did you set goals this month?  Did you discover life passions?  Did you attempt anything that you fear? Have you decided that this year is going to be awesome? …And how to make it so?

Reading without applying is just a waste of time and energy.  A new swimmer doesn’t go online and read about swimming techniques and proceed to jump into the Great Barrier Reef.  No, they get their feet a little wet first by practicing in the shallow end.  The same is true here; the best time to practice personal development is when you aren’t in too deep… develop a life toolkit today to better equip yourself for endeavors tomorrow.

Make time today to review the topics we’ve discussed and reflect on what you’ve learned, agreed with (or didn’t), and enjoyed this month.

  • Did anything pass your B.S. Filter and give you an ‘aha!’ moment? Write it down and save it.
  • Did anything stand out as an area to work on?  Write it down.
  • Did you shake your head and say ‘hell no’ to something?  That’s fine, it simply means it didn’t pass your B.S. Filter and you can move on. 😉

The goal from FYI Month was simply to get you thinking about areas that can promote a better understanding of oneself.  Taking the time to think and grow as an evolving individual is what separates those who are Passively Living and those who are Consciously Living.

This is the definition of a ‘Student of Me’.  It’s a class lasting about 100 years and your grade is based on the impact you leave behind. Never stop studying up.


Are you taking the challenge next month as mentioned on Day 27 – Goals (Task 2)?! Have you made a month goal to change a habit, develop your character, or improve your health?  I dare you!

    Me gusta! A friend of mine always says, “Life is the only teacher that gives you the test first and the lesson later.” I totally agree and thank goodness…otherwise I never would have made it through college!
