If you want to live a successful life, you need to learn the gift of examining yourself. It’s so easy to become busy and crowd out the need for self-examination. We chat and stay busy, living our life on auto-pilot.
But the thoughtful person takes time to examine everything. It looks at the calendar to see where there are times for introspection. It examines motives for why we do what we do. It asks “why” to most all we do. It won’t accept easy answers. It tries to take every thought captive, not allowing anything to inner the chamber of our minds, knowing the negative thought’s ultimate destruction.
Successful people know the importance of an examined life. They know how important it is not to let life control them, but to control life itself. They think about the brevity of life. They try to live “in the moment,” to live life to the full.
Successful people know this is true. Does this describe you?
If not, why not?
