10 Self-Evaluation Questions To Help You Begin Your Growth

Last Updated on

Self-evaluation can be extremely important in order to understand where you stand, what you need to improve to achieve your goals and in this post, I share some self-evaluation questions that can be answered to get a better insight.

I’ve always felt like the best place to write is at the airport. There’s so much ridiculous stuff to observe. All of the little nonsensical things that drive our us a little crazy. In fact, you can make an entire career out of it.

Wait. Never mind. Jerry Seinfeld already did that. Dang. I thought I was onto something. For now, I’ll just stick my toilet seat. There is not much happening here, nothing to make a career of, except my thoughts which are mostly reflective, self-assessment etc.

When I evaluate or assess myself, I am assessing what I know, do not know, and what I would like to know, what I’ve done, not done, and what I need to do to achieve my goals. I recognize my strengths and weaknesses. I become more familiar with myself, beliefs, values, life principles and possibly my misconceptions.

Why is self-evaluation important?

The thing is that our judgment of  who we are or what we think we are doing and who we really are or what we actually are doing is not always the same. This is probably the reason most celebrities, sportsmen, politicians look at their own video clippings to analyze how they can improve themselves, they look for loopholes in their current or past acts, games or presentations and use the information to improve their next act.

we are evolving beings. For most of us, our wants and goals change on a regular basis. It is important to realize when your personal goals change or have been accomplished so that you can make adjustments and probably get new goals.

By being honest with yourself about how you are achieving your goals and consistently evaluating how they line up with every area of your life, you can prevent yourself from getting into a situation where you are no longer satisfied by your life.

Another reason to reflect on how your objectives and reality are lining up is to make sure that you are actively and effectively performing your duty in your work, family, and every aspect of your life. Whatever your role is, if you are not accomplishing the goals you set out for yourself, the effect can be felt by everyone around you.

Self-evaluation is a very important tool for continuous self-improvement, personal development and growth.

10 Self-Evaluation Questions to help you get started: 

  • Where am I currently (financially, relationship with God, family, loved ones; career, health wise, etc) ? (rephrase: what is your current situation?)
  • What have I accomplished in my life so far?
  • Does my life right now breed happiness and satisfaction?
  • What went wrong? How did I get to where I am now?
  • How did I contribute to this situation? (something I had control over but did little or nothing about..)
  • How have I allowed this situation or the past to define my life (negatively)? What meaning have I given to it? What different  meaning can I give to this situation?
  • What lessons have I learned from this situation? What have I allowed the failures in my life to teach me?
  • If I stay in my current state, doing the same things I’ve been doing in the ways I have been doing them, where will I end up? Am I okay with this?
  • Given a second chance, what would I do differently?
  • If all my perceived obstacles, fears, etc. were removed what will I do?

Lastly, ask: How do I get back on track?

While these self-evaluation questions may not seem very all-encompassing, they will definitely go a long way in helping you determine where you are and want your life to go.
