Reflection is the process of knowing oneself


Reflection is a process for obtaining valid information about one's performance and the factors that influence it.

Reflection enables us to:

*evaluate our own experiences;
* understand how you think;
* learn from your mistakes;
• repeat successes;
• revise and plan.

A big part of self-reflection is understanding how you effect other people. You are powerful beyond measure and when you share the best version of yourself, everyone benefits.

Who are you? What matters to you? What are you passionate about? What gets you up in the morning or keeps you awake at night?
