Reflections…Journey To Finding You

Surveys, Ratings, Mystery Shoppers, Performance Reviews and the list goes on…we live in a society that promotes being analytical about a situation, relationship or event.  We are constantly being analyzed about our lives, our daily interactions and we analyze what we experience in our lives.  If we patronize a financial institution and a policy we deem is unfair presents itself…we call for change.  With regard to the increase in police brutality amongst individuals of color…we call for reform.

Yet within ourselves…we never look within to analyze our behaviors, we never take the time to do self-reflection.  We never call for change within ourselves.  In the world that we live in today, everything is just go, go, go.  Leaving one to feel like there is no time for introspection and self-reflection.  The reality of it is, in order to grow, develop and become a better individual…we can’t afford not to MAKE the time.  Many have attempted to embark on this journey and have found it very overwhelming and therefore have left it off.

When one looks at something with a negative connotation, it encourages that person to just leave well enough alone.  However, when it comes to personal, spiritual and professional development…we have to change that perception.  Self reflection and introspection is a necessity to positive growth…operative word; POSITIVE.  There are beneficial reasons in which we can look at this self work.  Here are some healthy views with respect to self-reflection; especially as we look into starting a new year:

Tip#1: It Allows You To Notice Negative Patterns


Tip#2: Focused On The Bigger Picture

Tip# 3: Prevents You From Worrying About What You Cannot Control


Tip# 4: Face Your Fears

Tip# 5: Clearly Defines When You Are Most At Peace

Tip# 6: Self Awareness


Tip# 7: Conscious Decisions vs. Emotional Decisions
