Reflection Helps You Move Forward
February 25, 2021
Hindsight is 2020. If something goes wrong, looking back, you feel you should have handled the situation differently.
Most times, it is futile to think about what you could have done differently. The time for action has passed. There is nothing you can do to unwind the situation. Don’t wallow in the past.
If indeed you want to reflect on the past to learn from it, there are two questions you must ask yourself.
- What was it that prevented me from doing what I feel today I should have done? Is that still within me, or have I grown out of it?
- What was my mentality then? What was it that I did not know then that I know today?
Regret will get you stuck in your past, continually reminding you of what you should have done.
Reflection will get you out of your past with lessons learned to look into the future positively.
