We’ve all heard the statement “Take a long hard look in the mirror.” when it comes to evaluating our life or current situation. It is often used as a motivational tactic to encourage others to reach their full potential, but are we looking in the mirror for our own self gain or accomplishments?

Your own self-reflection is for someone else’s protection. The true purpose for self-evaluation will lead you to other people. You have to evaluate yourself everyday with the mindset “How can I get better in order to lead someone else?” The reason for growth and maturity is to make sure those we are leading can grow as well, so don’t just look to better yourself instead focus on making changes that will impact many for years to come. Challenge yourself every day that your own self-evaluation will assist others to reach their destination.
