Who are you?
It amazes me how much I have been able to learn from what I did during my darkest period particularly about the power of self-awareness. In reality I stopped dreaming, thinking about those goals that could have pushed me forward. I also stopped analysing my life and being aware of what was happening inside of my head. In fact all those things I had learnt and followed previously which enabled me to enjoy the success I had, were now forgotten and hence my life just stood still.
I allowed myself to be a prisoner to my problems. Attaching myself to my financial difficulties and losing myself in work I shouldn’t have continued doing. I wasn’t aware of what I was doing in reality, I think I’ve described myself before as being at that time one of the living dead; I was living like a zombie.
If only in those days I’d allowed myself to use the power of self-awareness. Self-awareness is about learning to better understand why you feel what you feel and why you behave in a particular way. Once you begin to understand this concept you then have the opportunity and freedom to change things about yourself enabling you to create a life that you want.
Having clarity about who you are and what you are is empowering, it allows you to take the actions necessary to move your life forward. Now I am always making sure that I’m using the power of self-awareness and standing outside of myself so as to ensure I get a clear picture of everything I am doing. I can clearly see what is working and what isn’t, what I like and what I don’t.
The power of self-awareness allows us to identify areas where we would like to make improvements and determine those things about us that we are happy about. But we have to be looking to see and we have to allow ourselves to be self-critical but also recognise when we’re doing well.
Many of the students in my Reinvention University group have already come to the realisation that self-awareness is key if they want to find success in any area of life and if you want to escape from bad times. They are beginning to see the infinite number of possibilities that are available to them. It is through developing a sense of self awareness that you will be enabled to discover your true power and will come to discover the real truth concerning your unlimited ability to attract and experience those things that you most desire to have in your life, regardless of what they may be, or how farfetched others may tell you that they are.
The one thing I came to realise once I woke up from my enforced slumber following my bad times, was that it is a lack of self-awareness that leaves us helpless and unable to change the events, conditions, and circumstances that leave us down in the dumps. It leaves us unable to take the initiative to find the answers that may have come to serve us, which would allow us to abate the effects and duration of enduring our challenges.
With the power of self-awareness we have an early warning system to tell us when things are moving of course, but also a clap monitor to tell us when we’re doing well.
So please give yourself time to check inside with yourself and be self-aware.Just realise the power of self-awareness and how it can change your life.
