Where Change Starts - Self Evaluate
Updated: Oct 23, 2020
What was the last thing that triggered a change in you? Did you change because you wanted to or where you force to change because of the circumstance surrounding you? Change is triggered by many actions and reactions but the reality is this, change won't happen until you have mentally acknowledge it is needed and you make an intentional effort to change your mindset. When you change your mindset you change your life. So, are you currently in a place where you think some change may be needed but you don't know where to start? In the next three post starting will this one I'll explore a few thing that can kick start your process for changing your mindset and changing your life. The first area I want to explore is SELF-EVALUATION. Why start here? Well, if change start with our mindset; wouldn't you say doing a self-evaluation is critical to the process? The answer is, absolutely. Self-evaluation will help you identify your strengths and your weaknesses. Once you understand both, you can now use this knowledge to start creating a plan to intentionally change the way you think and feel about specific areas of your life. Does this make sense? It should, but to better help you understand the process here are a few question I want you to consider:
Are you ultimately living at a maximum in all areas of your life, or at least the areas that makes up the majority of who you are?
Are you investing the same time and energy into the areas of your life that are important to you? Is there a balance effort?
Does all the activities you do in your daily life, adding value to your existence?
Be completely honest in this moment, exactly! you have been short changing yourself because of the way you think. Maybe, because of fear, or because you think someone else can do it better, maybe because the last time you tried you fail; I'm sure you have lots of reasons but would you believe me that the number one reason is simply because of the way you think? it's all a mindset? And changing your mindset start with self-evaluation; you have to be able to identify the things that are holding you back before you can change them. You can't change what you don't identify. The good news, your strengths are usually easy to identify but your weaknesses might take more time to identify. However, do not overstate or understate your weaknesses instead decide to fix them, commit to change them and most importantly implement an action plan to improve them and your mindset will follow.
