Self-evaluation is the process of looking at oneself to access aspects that are important to one’s identity.
Regardless of your age, at each stage of your life, take your time to sit back and do some self-evaluation.
You should know who you are and what you want. You should have asked yourself those difficult questions.
It enables you to be critically reflective about yourself. See yourself clearly, and make adjustments if necessary.
Self-assessment doesn’t guarantee your success, but it guarantees you will be happy about how you are living your life. Because self-evaluation results in self-development.
The more study you make about who you are, the easier life gets. Below are a few tips to help us assess who you are:
7 STEPS TO EVALUATE YOURSELF
1. SEE IF YOU HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING YOUR HEART:
How often do I listen to my inner voice? Is an important question you need to ask yourself and you should be able to answer it.
If you want a happy and enjoyable life, you have to pick the path that makes your heart sings.
Many people find themselves living a successful life, yet feel unfulfilled. This is caused by not listening to what your heart says.
Not listening to your heart means listening to every other voice around you except yours.
Your heart should partner with your mind. Your heart helps you use your natural passion, it brings out the best in you.
2. ARE YOU POSITIVE ENOUGH?
Take your time to rate your level of positivity. Clear your mind from “can’t”.
A positive mind sees opportunity instead of obstacles. You should understand that problems do not stop signs, they are guidelines.
How well do you handle situations? How optimistic are you? What you see before you, is what appears.
You should be positive enough.
3. HOW RESPONSIBLE ARE YOU?
Responsibility is being in duty for a decision and accountable for any action you do.
Being responsible doesn’t happen at birth, it is acquired as you age, school, and make progress.How responsible you are, depends solely on you.
Do you always procrastinate just because you don’t find the work interesting? Are you always making excuses for yourself? Do you find it difficult to own up to mistakes?
These are questions that rate how responsible you are.
4. HOW GRATEFUL ARE YOU:
No matter the situation you are in, you should be grateful for the life you are living.
Stop trying to count what you need to be grateful for? Being alive is enough.
If you can’t appreciate where you are now, you can’t ever appreciate where you are going to be.
You can’t access your progress if you are grateful for nothing.
5. WHAT ARE YOUR REGRETS:
Sometimes you might want to make a list of things you regret.
One thing is certain, we tend to experience disappointments at a certain point in our life, but living a life of regrets isn’t worth it.
Just love, laugh, and live to the best of your ability.
6. HOW HONEST AM I TO MYSELF:
How honest are you to yourself? For most people, it’s easier, to be honest with many people, but rarely honest with themselves.
Honesty can be hard but you’ve got to keep telling yourself the truth. There is no better way to set things right with yourself.
Once you get a taste of freedom of honesty. It’s hard not to want more.

7. AM I PROUD OF MYSELF?
Do you know that’s it’s fun to just make jokes about yourself? Make fun of your face, your weird smile. How talented and boring you are.
You enjoy thinking about how much you hate yourself. It’s just more comfortable for you.
Why not take a moment to think about how proud you can be. Look at you, you’ve grown so much.
You’ve achieved so many things, you might not be where you want to be but believe it or not you’re getting closer. Isn’t that enough to be proud of? Every day you grow older, you just get better and better even when you’re not trying.
Admit you are proud of yourself and appreciate what you’ve become.
Self-evaluation discovers more of who you are and who you are to become. It sets you free. What’s your priority in this little world if it’s not setting yourself free.
The only people afraid of this life are the ones who cage themselves in themselves, bizarre right?
Put this to practice and see life getting easier and better each day.
