Do you want to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life?
Most people are not aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. This leads to ineffective decision-making, poor communication, less productivity, and unsatisfying relationships with others.
By gaining increased self awareness you can improve your personal performance at work or in school, become a better leader or parent, increase your confidence levels and achieve greater success in all areas of life.
But that’s just a few benefits. Keep reading to see the top 5 benefits of self awareness.
1) You Will Know Yourself Better
When you know yourself better, then it’s easier to make decisions that suit your personality type, lifestyle choices, and goals. When you have an accurate view of who you are, what motivates you, and what obstacles block success in your chosen path – people start seeing beyond their assumptions when interacting with you.
They understand why certain things upset or irritate you; when you are open to looking at your own behaviors and feelings you understand others better too.
2) Improv e Your Relationships with Others
Your relationships improve because you know what you value, so it’s easier to choose who will support these values and who won’t. You can set boundaries on how much time is acceptable for certain behaviors from others, so when they exceed those limits, they need to respect your wishes or let go entirely.
Increased self awareness allows more focus on quality, not the number of relationships because you are better at knowing when someone is emotionally needy or limiting.
3) Career Success Increases
Your career success increases when you know what tasks suit your skillset and which don’t because it’s easier to make choices about the jobs you accept or reject – not just based on money but also intrinsic rewards like opportunities for growth and good work-life balance.
There are other benefits like increased resilience to stress (because you understand how to best deal with problems), increased motivation (because empowering beliefs to motivate you to take both small steps towards any goal and big leaps towards realizing bigger dreams).
4) Avoid the Pitfalls of Repeating Negative Mistakes
Self awareness allows you to catch negative self-beliefs before they undermine your chances for success. That belief that “I’m not smart enough” is fair, even though it isn’t true – but you can avoid perpetuating this lie by noticing when doubt creeps into your feelings about yourself.
When you notice limiting beliefs, you are better able to discard them because you realize how untrue they are. This helps improve self-esteem – knowing who you are based on the reality of your actions, rather than lies created by distorted thoughts and false beliefs.
5) Everyone Will See the Real You
When you understand what motivates your behaviors and what your core values are, people will see the real you. They’ll know where you stand because you take responsibility for how you act towards them.
It’s easier to be authentic when decisions aren’t about ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, they’re about the choices that suit who you really are – based on your core values and beliefs.
