Does Introspection Assist in Self Progression?

Why would we need to examine our lives? What benefit does it
yield? Isn't it just rehashing the past?

All of these questions have merit and I will examine each in this

Self progression has a strong tie to one's willingness to be able to
reflect on pertinent decisions. Moreover, this task, if done daily
and immediately after an action or decision, can bear much fruit.

Have you ever sat and stared out at something beautiful like a
glassy lake or a foggy mountain and simply thought about your life
and what it seemingly means?

This, simply put, is the nuts and bolts of introspection. To
introspect is, in basic terms, reflecting or self examining what
certain things mean to you. Introspection allows you to ask
yourself why you should or shouldn't have done something a
certain way.

Asking poignant, yet logical, questions to yourself and resolving to
come out more insightful because of this action, clears the
ambiguities of life.

Becoming accountable to yourself as well as others is an extremely
empowering concept. This means that whatever comes around the
bend or up the hill, you are resolved to face it without the worry of
contaminating something due to your actions or lack thereof.

This, in turn, certainly becomes a sort of purification process and
eases any turmoils that rattle your subconscious. It's truly
beneficial to resist stagnation, strive for self progression, and
discover introspection's significant importance.

Without a doubt, many people would argue that the past is just the
past, and rehashing it is merely a waste of time, so just move

Well, moving forward is one thing. However, dissecting your
recent and long-term past, is truly the only way we can learn from
our mistakes, keeping those lessons learned always in our back

Don't be afraid to be critical, if your actions or lack thereof,
warrant it.

In self examination, sometimes you need to be a tough critic. This
concept raises the bar of standards and ensures that it doesn't
naturally slide downward due to self-neglect.

Constantly moving forward should only proceed once examination
and accountability has been achieved. It is definitely nothing less
than horrible advice to forget about everything when people say
this. It is basically saying turn the other cheek to reality and step
away by moving forward.

Although, there are many scenarios in life, like a breakup in a
relationship, where sometimes moving forward sooner than later is
indicated; however, these still need the assistance of introspection.

In the event your ego is simply too important because everything
you do or touch usually turns to gold and silver anyway, then it's
time to check that at the door.

By not checking your ego or narcissism, your simply becoming like
that of a plant that never grows. You are always fed with water
and sunlight but, due to your lack of introspection, you stay static
amongst the many others becoming taller and stronger around you.

Committing to yourself to daily self examination will undoubtedly
improve your moral character, but more importantly, help in your
overall self progression. Resolve to become and stay permanently
