Wow!  That was a lot of quotes for you to reflect on!  Some of them will have meaning to you and some will not.   Some of them you might use for social captions and others you won’t use.

Social media provides the opportunity to stay in touch with a lot of people, to have fun, but it can also be used to share some thoughts and quotes that someone can apply to their lives and mindset to assist them in creating a better life.

Not everyone who reads the same quote will attach the same meaning to the deep quotes.  That is why we haven’t provided our interpretations of what they mean.  It is up to you to apply your beliefs and experiences to develop what they mean to you.

Regardless of how you use our deep self-quotes online, we hope that you use them for your own personal growth and development.  In his book Personal Development for Smart People, author Steve Pavlina makes the following points.  I believe that they apply to what you make of the quotes you just read.  

  • “We grow by discovering new truths about ourselves and our reality.”  The only way to do that is by subjecting ourselves to new ideas.
  • “There’s something you think is true today that will later turn out to be false.”  You need to read and think about thoughts that you might not agree with today and that are not always easy to understand.  
  • As you strive to bring more truth into your life, you must cultivate a high degree of self-awareness. This includes becoming aware of your strengths, weaknesses, talents, knowledge, biases, attachments, desires, emotions, instincts, habits, and state of mind.

And, to wrap up our post, here are some ideas for questions to ask yourself to go beyond these quotes and clarify what you want your life to be like.  If you discover that after answering these questions, you need to make some changes to your life, get to work on it right away!

  1. Am I taking anything in my life for granted? 
  2. Am I living true to myself?
  3. Am I putting enough effort into my relationships?
  4. Am I letting things I can’t control cause me to be stressed?
  5. Who am I, really?
  6. What worries me most about my future?
  7. Am I holding on to something that I need to let go of?
  8. What really matters most in my life?

If you liked those questions, you can check out some other meaningful questions at Introspection Self Reflection.
