Reflection is the examination of one’s own conscious thoughts and feelings. In psychology, the process of reflection relies exclusively on observation of one’s mental state, while in a spiritual context it may refer to the examination of one’s soul.

Positive reflection is about self-reflection and self-reflection is the capacity of humans to exercise introspection and the willingness to learn more about their fundamental nature, purpose, and essence.

So Amal gives us a task of positive reflection to practice garnering positive thoughts through reflection. AMAL has a great impact on my life. Before Amal, I am less career-oriented, less specific, and unprofessional. After joining this academy I feel like I am just wake up and learn and improve in myself a lot of things.

I Sit down, relax and reflect on my Amal journey thus far. Think of all the interactions and conversations that I’ve made, and the work that I have done that has had an impact on me. I love all courses and learn something new in every single part of this fellowship.

But Amal asks us to choose one so I choose ‘’ leadership without authority”.

This made me think that leadership is not only about being a good manager or telling people what to do. Leadership is about taking responsibility, ownership, and initiative so that others will follow you. No matter where you are, you have a choice to take responsibility and step up.

The task in the leadership course was “fixing up stuff surrounding yourself” make me realized that by taking responsibility we can do with things and made our surrounding and our life well-disciplined and beautiful. Everyone was surprised because, to be honest, I am a little bit “Kam chor”. Everybody appreciated me and I felt very satisfied. After doing this task I realized that you can take responsibility and practice leadership on daily basis without any authority

Leadership is like exercise. Do it every day, the results take time but you will see them. It’s the little things. (Simon Sinek)

This incident has a great impact on me I decided to be a leader of my own in every part of my life. Why I wait for a leader or other people who realize me after a certain time to do things for life. I myself took responsibility and leadership to motivate me and govern me for improvements especially in my career.

Leadership is about making things around yourself better, as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.
