Self-Awareness and the Record of Your Actions

An important part of self-awareness is understanding how your behaviors affect not only you, but others as well. As you go through life, you create a record of your actions:

  • The way you treat yourself and others.
  • Whether you live authentically or not.
  • Whether you heal your hurts or run from them.
  • Whether you follow your true path in life.
  • The beneficial vibes you spread.
  • The good deeds you do.
  • The quality of your relationships.
  • Your inner health.
  • The depth of your understanding of yourself.
  • Your level of kindness, compassion and balance.

Each one of your actions reflects who you are at that particular moment. The pattern you establish throughout your life becomes the verifiable record of whom you chose to be. It’s up to you to consciously decide how you behave in life and whether you leave a positive imprint on the world around you. What will your actions say about you?

Building a Better World

As someone who values self-awareness, you likely understand the role you play in building a better world for everyone. Here are some ideas on how to become a person who makes a difference:

  • Heal the inner hurts from your past so that you feel as good about yourself as possible. People who understand themselves well and have worked out their difficult issues are better able to help others because their own stuff doesn’t get in the way.
  • Take action each day to make your dreams come true. Wake up each morning ready to do things your really love. Don’t settle for just anything that comes your way, work deliberately to make things happen. You don’t have to do everything at once, just take a small step every day.
  • Be yourself. Don’t live someone else’s life, be who you really are deep inside no matter what others say.
  • Believe that the world can be better. If you don’t believe in a compassionate, equitable, caring world, you can’t be part of the solution. Only people who believe in feeling, thinking, and behaving positively can create a more positive world.
  • Love more. Love yourself, love others, love the earth. Fill your days with love.
  • Keep doing things you love and that come from your heart. Your contribution is unique and valuable.
  • Keep building your self-awareness.

Do these things and you’ll feel so great about yourself that you’ll automatically generate positive vibes. What are your ideas for building a better world?

Self-Awareness and Listening

People who possess a high level of self-awareness tend to be good at listening, which is one of the most vital skills to live consciously, meaningfully and compassionately. The ability to listen allows you to:

  • Avoid getting your stuff all over other people.
  • Learn more about other people.
  • Avoid jumping to conclusions.
  • Honor other people.
  • Treat people with respect.
  • Build trust.
  • Connect on a deeper level.
  • Practice self-awareness by not stepping on the important things people are trying to tell you.
  • Show how healthy and balanced you are.
  • Build positive relationships.

It takes a lot of restraint to let go of having to be in the spotlight and give other people the time and space to tell their stories but it will help you live a richer and more meaningful life. What will you do to listen more?

On Perseverance

Perseverance is one of the most important traits a person can possess. To me it means having the self-awareness necessary to move forward and trust my inner voice no matter what happens. Very often, talented people will stifle their work or choose a “safer” career path because of what they heard from well-meaning people as they were growing up. I’ve found it helpful to keep going in spite of the inside and outside detractions and just do my thing.

It doesn’t take superhuman effort to keep going, simply do one small thing each day that helps you continue your journey. Keep building your self-awareness so you can continue clarifying what you really want to do in life. Repeated modest actions will eventually add up to a great body of work and deep fulfillment. What insights do you have on perseverance?
