Do You React – Or Reflect?

Do you react, or do you reflect in your life? What do I mean by that?

When obstacles or challenges come to you, are you the type of person that reacts to them instantaneously? Such as, if you get bad news, do you react in a way that brings you down? When you have a negative occurrence occur to you, do you react in a way that makes you feel bad, makes you feel lower?  Just feeling like you’re incapable of doing it?

Or do you reflect?

Do you reflect upon your previous success?  Did you reflect upon the lessons learned from a previous or similar failure?  That you have the mindset developed previously that you’re the type of person that can overcome any challenge or obstacle that you have in your life?

So learn to be a person that can reflect more and look at the positive in every situation, as opposed to the person that reacts to a negative situation and goes forward with that negative mindset. Be the person that reflects not reacts.

Until next time, take care and be well.

  1. Thank you Dr. Terence for bringing a smile to my whole being with your thoughts on reflecting.

    As we reflect on what another is saying, we mirror back to them their value and inner value. We also mutually receive the hormonal release of hormones from the mirror neurons in our interacting brains. Love and Peace!

  2. I always reflect then react when asked a question or looking for solutions , I react and then reflect when I am attacked and reaction is needed immediately then reflect on how I could have prevented it. If you think about life is a balance of both.
