Self-Awareness and Fear

Self-Awareness and Fear


Many people live in fear rather than actively working on increasing their self-awareness so they can live more courageously and happily. When you know yourself deep inside you have the power to resolve the issues that scare you rather than repeating them unconsciously. Here are some of the signs of living in fear:

  • Afraid of new experiences.
  • Fear of people who are perceived as different.
  • Resistance to new ideas or change.
  • Strict adherence to routines.
  • Mistrust of anyone not in one's inner circle.
  • Constant feeling of lack of safety.
  • Uncomfortable with uncertainty.
  • Lashing out toward people and things perceived as threats.
  • Reluctance to acknowledge or heal inner hurts.

People don't do these things because they feel happy and balanced inside, they perpetuate them because they don't know what else to do. Thankfully, there are ways to alleviate fear and they all start with the person's willingness to change direction. Eliminating fear is a gradual process where the person in question deliberately decides to move in a positive direction and replace the old thoughts, feelings and actions with new ones that aren't based on anxiety or alarm. What will you do to not live in fear?

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?

Self-Awareness and Negative Beliefs

Self-Awareness and Negative Beliefs

When you possess a high degree of self-awareness you tend to bypass negative beliefs because you have a more complete understanding of what's really going on inside and around you and how you can move things in a positive direction rather than staying stuck in fear, superstition, inaction or inauthenticity. Here are some ideas to help you reduce the negativity:

  • Realize that you can't possibly control everything around you.
  • Work actively on understanding yourself on a deeper level.
  • Take action each day to do things that are meaningful to you.
  • Believe that your perception of the world doesn't have to be negative.
  • See the big picture rather than getting mired in endless detail.
  • Focus on what's going well.
  • Learn to redirect negative feelings and replace them with positive alternatives.

Negative people and events can't hold you back if you don't let them. You have many options available to you rather than despairing or giving up, what will you do to increase your self-awareness and get rid of negative beliefs?
