What you don’t know about yourself can hurt you.
Self-awareness is one of the cornerstones of success. Lack of self-awareness leads to indecisiveness, disorganization and feeling powerless.
Self-awareness goes beyond self-confidence. To know yourself – fears, foibles, strengths, successes, hopes, dreams and insecurities all included – is to be able to create goals and build plans, knowing in advance most of the glitches and achievements that are likely to show up.
Action – All it takes to start building self-awareness is to ask yourself these quick questions:
- What am I thinking about right now?
- Is this a positive or negative thought?
- How do I feel about it?
- What actions have I taken as a result of that feeling?
- Are my results what I want?
To improve your financial bottom line, the quality of your personal and professional relationships and the pleasure you enjoy from life, self-awareness is always the starting point.
