Self-Awareness Means Looking Inside Yourself

Self-awareness means looking inside yourself rather than relying on outside influences, entities, or events to make you happy in life. Countless people spend inordinate amounts of time living based on what some outside person or entity tells them to do, or reacting to whatever circumstance they find themselves in, rather than charting a course based on who they are deep inside and what they find meaningful and fulfilling. The key to being truly happy in life is being able to look inside yourself and:

  • Define who you really are.
  • Discover your true inner voice.
  • Determine what you really want to do in life.
  • Figure out what you need to do to live authentically.

When you do these things you’ll live life based on what’s inside you rather than always reacting to outside people and situations. It’s up to you whether you live life consciously or passively. What will you do to look inside yourself?

    Thanks, this really helps me. I am not understanding my inner feelings. What do I do to understand them?

      Thank you Sadiya for your question. It’s OK not to understand your inner feelings. A lot of people have never been taught how to understand their feelings. Perhaps a good way to start understanding your feelings is to simply acknowledge that you have them and continue to evaluate and think about what they are and what they mean to you, as well as their effect on your life. Over time, as you look inside, you will gain insights as to what your feelings are and what they mean and you’ll be able to focus on the ones that bring you joy and fulfillment. Cheers, Guy.
