Today, I want you to ask yourself one (or all!) of these questions. If you’re a writer, you may want to write out your thoughts.
- What have you learned this week?
- Have you missed an opportunity this week?
- How are you different today than you were a year ago?
- If it were possible, what advice would you give to your teenaged self? How can you make use of that advice today?
Self examination mentally prepares us for making healthy, adaptive choices!
Reflecting on our progress, goals, and challenges cognitively primes us to recognize opportunities for self improvement and growth. If you’re not thinking about self improvement, chances are you tend to “go through the motions” and miss opportunities to think or respond differently and take on new challenges.
