THERE are many definitions of reflection and there are two definitions that I would like to deal with here. One is to give "serious thought and consideration" and the other one is to "throw back from a surface".
When we talk about reflecting back on our lives are we just giving serious thought and consideration to what we have achieved or not achieved or are we just seeing in our past lives a throw back of what we are now. Are we filtering our entire lives according to where we are at this precise moment in time and just seeing 'stuff' that supports it!
Of course the answer is really in the latter. When we reflect back on our year, our lives, our filters will filter it in accordance with where they are today and how they are thinking, today. So we will have different perceptions on good and bad events in our lives according to when we reflect on them.
I have seen written life histories from people who have re-written them several times over a series of years and, if you read them, you would think they are different people!
So what is the use of this?
If you reflect on your life now, today, then it gives you an insight into how you are thinking today and gives you a clue as to what you want to change.
For example - if you reflect on your life and all you get is a string of bad events there is a clue that you are focussing on bad events and consequently in the future, as you know, what ever you focus on you will get!
If when you think about your life it is nothing but a string of positives then you are focussed on positive learnings (nice job) and you are likely to keep doing that in the future and achieving positives in your life.
There is another instance where someone reflects back on their lives during which they have had a particular unuseful, or poor' behaviour that they have done so much that they have normalised it and it doesn't mean anything to them. This is dangerous because they are unlikely to change it.
So, as you think about your life now - where are you?
Once we have a picture of focus then you have a choice. You can either rock on in the same way and do nothing and keep achieving what you have always achieved, or you can change it and transform your thinking and life and, if you are at least an NLP Practitioner you should know how to start the transformation.
