Introspection- A Counter Intuitive Approach
The most important and necessary act for developing and improving life is Self Analysis, which is rarely seen in common people. The lifestyle today has become so fast that people rarely get sometime for their family and even less than that for themselves. And this is the root cause of stagnant development. No Analysis = No Development. Even if some people are analyzing themselves, there is some problem in the method. To know, what the problem is, read till end.
What the hell is this Introspection?
Okay, I know that many of you, who are reading this article might be well aware of the word- Introspection. If that is the case, you can leave the below given green box.
GREEN BOX FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW ABOUT INTROSPECTION Introspection basically means analyzing yourself. That is, keeping an eye over all of your activities and finding where were you wrong and what needs to be done to correct yourself. Most of the people who have become successful in their lives is because of their habit of self analysis. That also means giving a halt to one’s fast going life and giving a damn about the changes needed to improve his/ her life. If you are still not getting what the actual meaning is, you can search it on web and read about it. Thank you.
And how do many of the people apply it in their lives? I have personally read in a lot of books and web that the basic method of doing introspection is to sit quietly at a place for sometime and think about all the activities you have done in your whole day, and to analyse where is the scope for improvement. If you do introspection this way, that is, the way most people do it, may be you’re method is a bit older.
Point to be noted: If you are not in habit of self analysis or introspection, and are living in a fucking fast pace of your life, believe me, you need to change your mindset as soon as possible, or a pathetic lifestyle is not so far away.
The better way of self analysis
This method is a bit simple but the most effective way you will ever find for self analysis. This method of mine does not require you to sit at one place and think about all the activities you did in the whole day. Actually, it is somewhat different. I have written this method below in the form of steps, for you to get it properly.
| STEP 1- DON’T WAIT FOR A PARTICULAR TIME OF DAY FOR INTROSPECTION, INSTEAD DO IT SIMULTANEOUSLY DURING THE DAY-|
The thing is that, personally, this habit of sitting at one place and thinking about everything done in that day has not pleased me ever in my whole life. So, I would not suggest this thing to you too. Now, what I personally suggest is that you should analyse each and every task of your day simultaneously. How to do that? Relax, the next step is all about it.
|STEP 2- DIVIDE EVERYTHING YOU DO IN YOUR LIFE INTO TWO PARTS- RIGHT AND WRONG-|
Yes, at first it may seem foolish but if thought properly can drastically change your life. How? Let me explain that. Every time you do something in your life, be it asking someone for help, or cheating someone for some money, just take 2 seconds before doing it to think whether what I am going to do is right or wrong. As simple as that. Is it right or wrong? Right or wrong? Place the thing that you are just going to do in your mind under these columns, RIGHT AND WRONG, and ask yourself, is this act of mine right or wrong? ( And you know what, after age of 12, we are mature enough to distinguish whether the thing we are going to do right now is right or wrong, it is as simple as breathing air).
|STEP 3- ANALYSIS|
One thing I would like you to know is that, sometimes, we can’t afford to stop for this much time to think whether the thing we are just going to do is right or wrong, well in that case, do the task, and when it is done, analyse it in few minutes of doing it. ( Think this way, the thing that you did just a few seconds ago, was it right or wrong? And in case, it was wrong, what should have been done so that the next time a similar situation happens, you may deal it properly.)
Many times in our life, we unknowingly do many wrong things and never come to know about them, because, we never analyse them.
After reading the above 3 steps, you might be thinking that I am an asshole and the shit I have written does not lead you anywhere. Well, in that case, I cannot help you by anyway but if you are truly determined to improve your life, man/woman, don’t believe what I am saying. Just implement these 3 steps for a single day in your lifetime. The results you will get will be enough to prove my method to you. I, personally, have adapted this method in my life and truly speaking, I have seen incredible results. I know, this method seems too simple at the face, but the day you will apply it, it will become your best friend forever.
