To be successful in any situation, it is critical to utilize self reflection consistently and thoughtfully. But first, what is self reflection?
Self reflection is an honest inventory, a fixing of our thoughts in the impact of our words and actions to people with whom we interact. The advantages of Self Reflection include:
Self-awareness includes our ability to read our own emotions as well as their effect on others. We then start to create a sharp awareness of our strengths, as well as limits, which then help us to develop a thorough comprehension of our capabilities.
Through clarity of our limits and strengths we are able to hone our capability to self – manage. This consists of psychological self-control and the ability to adapt to changes that appear in the workplace, together with deal with complex, and ambiguous situations without taking it personal.
Personal Leadership Competency
Consistency, transparency, displaying ethics and honesty, lead to developing trust with others. Consequently, we become more engaged, enthusiastic, and take on a positive outlook and whereas before we may have seen only obstacles, we now see opportunities.
When you practice self-reflection you start to discover yourself and how well you display understanding, relating to others as well as their view, and showing concern for their position. Not only can you connect with other people but you have a perceptive read on the climate of earth around you and start becoming more socially competent. The main reason why most people don’t really get along socially is because they have not taken the time to reflect on their short comings and failures.
Spend ten minutes every day taking some time to practice self-reflection. You can do this by doing things like journal writing, reading spiritual material, meditation or whatever can help you value your day and reflect on how your actions throughout the day reflect who you are and who you are becoming. Daily reflection can help you stay in your course.
