What is self-awareness?
Self-awareness. The term sounds a bit generic. It is unactionable if you don’t have it. So, it is not common to say: I want to be self-aware!
But what is self-awareness exactly?
Self-awareness: an awareness of one's own personality or individuality.
Still sounds a bit generic. Let look at what Wikipedia says: “…Self-awareness is how an individual consciously knows and understands their own character, feelings, motives, and desires.”
Bingo! Self-awareness is a conscious understanding of your own:
We learned that self-awareness has 4 building blocks: character, feelings, motives, and desires. Knowing this about yourself is actionable. But how?
One way to understand these topics about yourself is to reflect. Reflections can be done in multiple ways and at different frequencies. We will only cover daily reflections. Reflecting daily is the most effective way to find consciousness and self-awareness.
The first few reflections can be hard because you never did this before. It is important to write the first things that come to your mind to avoid hesitation. There are no wrong answers.
You will experience a lot of different answers. But the more you reflect, the more solid your answers will become. You will see similarities over time because you start to truly know yourself. This progress makes you conscious, and that makes you self-aware of you being conscious about it.
That last sentence is important. “This progress makes you conscious, and that makes you self-aware of you being conscious about it.”
