Self Awareness


Self Awareness can be described as having a clear perception of your personality, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. Self Awareness gives you a greater understanding of yourself, other people, how they perceive you, your attitude and your responses to them in any given moment or circumstance.

Being able to catch yourself when you realise that your thoughts, feelings or emotions are being counterproductive is an art worthy of mastery. And to the person who embarks on this journey and conquers the art of self awareness the benefits are mind blowing.

Self awareness is a key ingredient to success and leading a prosperous life, if you have it, teach it, if you lack it seek it.

4 Tips to enhance your Self-Awareness:

Create some space for yourself. Leave yourself some time and space every day – perhaps first thing in the morning or half an hour before sleep when you stay away from the digital distractions and spend some time with yourself, reading, writing, meditating, and connecting with yourself.

Keep a journal. Numerous studies have shown that people that keep a journal are happier and more successful. The whole point of this exercise is to become more in tune with how you feel every day and then look back and reflect on it. The value is not in the writing of itself but in the reading of it when you’re in a different state of mind.

Gain different perspectives.
Ask for feedback. In order to get a balanced assessment of where you truly are and how you’re perceived, it’s worth enlisting the help of family and friends who you respect and trust. Ask them what they think your strengths and weaknesses are and let them know that they can be 100% honest with you.

Always play to your strengths. It’s much easier to become a public speaker if you enjoy being the center of attention and a bit of an extrovert. The point is in life you’re going to have certain predispositions to certain activities. This can be from birth or something you acquired through life. Whatever the case may be, it’s much easier to work on your strengths rather than to improve on your weaknesses.

It's been a tough year and I would like to thank you all for all your continued support as I take this opportunity to take some time out till the New Year. Wishing you all the very best for the Festive Season Ahead.
