Self-Awareness and Being Happy

Self-Awareness and Being Happy

One of the most important reasons to increase your self-awareness is so you can be happy. There are a lot of people walking around who insist they're happy but who really are hiding a lot of turmoil just under the surface. Being happy means that the various parts of your life are in balance rather than conflict or tension. It's nearly impossible to feel genuine happiness if you have areas of your life that always remind you that all is not well.

A big part of self-awareness is working on your warts by taking an honest look at yourself. Heal the parts of you that create tension in your life and you'll be able to feel joy like never before. It may be difficult or painful at first, but the long-term rewards are immense. What will you do to use self-awareness to be more happy?

The Emptiness of Power and Control

The Emptiness of Power and Control

There is an emptiness to power and control that many people in positions of affluence and influence experience when they increase their self-awareness and realize it doesn't matter how much they dominate others when they themselves don't feel balanced and happy inside.

A lot of people seek power and control even though it doesn't provide them with deep, abiding fulfillment. Sure, it can produce temporary, superficial gratification, but that doesn't feed the need for meaning. The only way to be truly happy in life is to have inner power and control by healing one's hurts and being as healthy as possible toward oneself and others.

A lot of people think having power and control means subjugating or dominating others; qualities that are dramatically different from inner peace and balance. The key to living a genuinely happy life is to be so self-aware that it radiates outward and helps others grow and succeed. What do you think about power and control?

The Peace of Mind of Self-Awareness

The Peace of Mind of Self-Awareness

Self-awareness can bring you amazing peace of mind if you let it. The challenge is being able to let go of all the noise and obstacles that get in the way of learning about yourself and living authentically. A lot of people struggle with the idea that there is a different way of living where they get to be themselves and enjoy the results they get from thinking, feeling and acting naturally.

You can start increasing your peace of mind and self-awareness by taking time each day to think about your strengths and areas for improvement. Celebrate the wonderful things about you and also work on one thing you'd like to improve. Repeat the process and, along the way, you'll discover more and more about your amazing gifts. What will you do to increase your self-awareness?
