Self-reflection: Putting it into practise


Hi everyone, welcome back!

Time flies – September is over, and with it, so is self-reflection month.

Have you been putting our work into practise?

Practise makes perfect  – and I cannot think of any other facet of our lives where the importance of practice precedes that of self-reflection.

As a window to our past – a vivid, and essential part of us, self-reflection allows us to take real life lessons from a life that we have lived, and put those lessons into practise.

In this month, we have looked at discipline within self-love and learned that in delaying our self-gratification, we open our lives to immediate improvement.

We learned to be compassionate to ourselves and looked at what acceptance means to us.

And through self-love and self-acceptance, we learned to self-appreciate.

All of these vital lessons fit together like pieces of a puzzle in building our self-image.

And in ensuring that we can deal with whatever life throws at us, we looked at our self-resilience.

Of course, self-reflection does not end there.


Practice makes perfect 


To become what you know you’re capable of takes belief, however, with belief comes action. Action, though, requires constant practice.

According to Newton’s third law of motion: Every action has a reaction.

Likewise, a crucial lesson we learn through self-reflection is that our actions lead to our situations – of course, there are sometimes additional factors involved – but, how we deal with our present, and our future essentially relies on how we look at our past and put that into practise.

We can open ourselves up to change, to make smarter more informed and grow from there.

Or, we can keep doing what we have always been doing and remain exactly where we are.

It is up to us to decide when enough is enough. It is up to us to put our self-interests into perspective, and as difficult as it may be, it is time to ask ourselves what it is that we want from life and put that into practise.

Self-reflection is exactly that – it is putting you first, understanding what you need to change, where you need to change it, and how you need to go about that change in putting it into practise.

It isn’t about being selfish – if anything, it is necessary.

This is your life, and that is your glass ceiling.

Do you want to shatter it?

Well then, what’s stopping you?

See you soon x
