It is important that we make time for a little self-reflection once in a while. Sometimes we get so hung up looking for praise outside of ourselves when really, all that matters is that praise comes from within. So let’s give ourselves a little praise today! Why not! It’s healthy!
What is self-reflection?
It’s when you take time to think about your character and actions. So, let’s take some time to think about this past week or even the past few days.
Questions for Self Reflection
1.) How would you describe your character and actions?
2.) What small and large victories did you have this week?
3.) What are 2-3 things you did that made you proud?
4.) What is something you did to improve your health?
5.) What is something you did to further your career or increase your value at the workplace?
6.) What is something you did to nurture an already existing relationship?
7.) What is something you learned about yourself this week?
Now that might seem like a lot, but these are questions focused on some of the core areas of life. Many experts believe that without proper self-reflection it is very difficult to make changes and improvements. When I work with my clients, we always create time to do this weekly, and it has been an extremely powerful tool to keep focus, alignment, and direction in life.
For this approaching week, think to yourself how you would like to answer these questions by next week. Think about things you can do, starting Monday, that will help improve your health, your already existing relationships and increase your value in the work place. When will you exercise? Who will you call? What will you learn? Fall in love your self-reflection. Enjoy your journey!
