At some point in your life, you need to assess yourself and know where you are, where you are going, and where you intend to be. Call it, a self-assessment process. Just like in an office after a period of working, an employee is assessed over his performance levels. This is basically to see if he or she’s justified his employment in the company.
This example applies to us as well, we need to assess ourselves to see if we’ve justified our presence here on earth. Now do not get this twisted with eternal judgement. That is of God’s own will not ours. This assessment involves looking back @ the choices we’ve made, goals we’ve achieved, and attitudinal change and development.
Have we become better people from the mistakes we encountered? Have we achieved those limits to which we had our hearts set on? Some of us honestly are still stuck in the medieval time, where we feel that so far as we’re not dead, we just need to proceed to live without making adjustments or whatsoever.
The big mistake here is, the world is continuously evolving, certain traditions and ways of life are being replaced, be it gradually or rapidly. You can’t keep on living in primitive stages. You need to redefine and reinvent yourself, else you’ll be taken away quickly by sudden change of events.
This is where the assessment plays its role. You need to know where you stand in this world. Its an assessment that will help you realise your existence and to some large extent why you have been placed on earth. If you fail to realise your existence on earth then you have wasted your years here on earth. Its the simple truth.
You need to acknowledge who you are today and work on being better. Not for only those around you but for yourself. If you are not sincere with yourself, then you are a lie that everyone simply uses to escape the harsh reality of accepting their mistakes. Simply, you become a yardstick that everyone uses to measure their level of faults and errors.
Also, you need to know where you are going in life. Supposing you are in Uni, in your final year, if you have no clue of what you want to be doing by your final year, then you are totally lost from the world. Yesterday I talked about choices and it applies here. The choices you make will determine who you want to be and where you want to go.
The aftermath of these choices determine where you’ll end up but it doesn’t end there. You can review the choices made and make any adjustments or totally make new ones to suit your destination.
The assessment process is optional but very necessary. Its a process that will keep you on your toes. It doesn’t necessarily demand much effort because the tiniest of efforts placed in can have a major effect on how your life is as now.
Assess, reinvent and redefine your image to maintain your status of existence. #thatisall
