There's no place to start like the positive. What went right in the last year? Take stock of your successes, and the times when things fell into place, both in your professional and your personal life.
For each of the things you listed, take it a step farther. Why did they go right? What did you do? How did you approach what you did that helped that happen? What external factors supported that positive outcome?
Now take it yet another step. What did you learn from that? Boil it down into pieces that you can apply in the future. For example...
"When I ______, it helped me succeed."
"When I asked for _______, things went better."
"When I stopped _______, it helped me _______."
"When I focused on _______, the outcome was always positive."
Distill nuggets of insight that you can put to use in your favor in the years to come.
