Why Does Self-Awareness Matter at All?

Why Does Self-Awareness Matter at All?

Why does self-awareness matter at all? Because it's the key to living a deeply fulfilling, happy and authentic life. Imagine waking up each day, doing things that mean something to you and behaving like the real you. So many people spend their lives trying to be someone else or thinking and behaving in ways that don't reflect who they really are deep inside that they miss out on being themselves.

When you build self-awareness you give yourself the gift of being yourself without having to ignore, compromise or minimize your amazing ideas, talents and abilities. You get to do what you find meaningful and live in a way that's free from the restrictions and limits that many other people experience.

Self-awareness matters because you get to be your wonderful self.

Why Self-Awareness Matters

Why Self-Awareness Matters

You've probably met people, even very successful ones, who behave like they're clueless or unbalanced in some part of their lives. Perhaps they don't deal with others very positively, can't get past some childhood trauma or have ideas about the world that aren't grounded in reality. What they're often missing is self-awareness, the ability to understand how their thoughts, emotions and behaviors affect them and others.

People avoid looking at themselves because they're afraid of what they might find. It takes courage to admit that they're not perfect, that they've made mistakes, that they've been wrong in the past or that there are areas that need improvement in their lives. Those who do decide to take a candid look at themselves soon discover that they can live deeply satisfying, meaningful, healthy and balanced lives.

Self-awareness matters because you're worth it. You deserve to live a fully conscious life that reflects the real you rather than doing all the other garbage that makes you (and the people around you) unhappy. When you understand who you are and why you think and behave the way you do, you get to live an authentic life being yourself rather than trying to be someone you're not or relying on outside sources for your happiness.

Increasing your self-awareness gives you the opportunity to live the life you were meant to live without restrictions. It's a journey that begins with your willingness to look at yourself honestly and become the most healthy, balanced you possible. How will you start building your self-awareness?

What Is Self Awareness and Why Is It Important?

What Is Self Awareness and Why Is It Important?

People often ask me what is self-awareness and why is it important? In a nutshell, self-awareness is the ability to understand who you are and why you feel, think, and behave the way you do. It's important because it means the difference between living with your eyes closed or open, being unconscious or conscious.

Think of someone you know who never seems to have a clue about what they're doing or why things are happening in their lives; that's a person without self-awareness. People who know themselves well are able to live much deeper, more fulfilling and balanced lives as opposed to just stumbling from one accident to another. Here are some of the characteristics of people who possesses a high level of self-awareness:

  • They heal the hurts from their past.
  • They know who they are deep inside and what they really want to do in life.
  • They understand why they feel, think, and act the way they do.
  • They are able to step outside themselves and empathize with others.
  • They enjoy more meaningful interpersonal relationships.
  • They get along with others.
  • They don't need to control everything.
  • They don't have to win all the time.
  • They constantly learn and grow.
  • They understand how their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors affect not only them, but others, as well as society in general.
  • They care about reality.
  • They're comfortable with themselves.
  • They're generally happier.
  • They make the world a better place.

The reason why self-awareness is so important is that it gives you the opportunity to live consciously and actually affect your destiny. People who are self-aware are able to enjoy living at a more meaningful level.
