Finding that something in your life that makes you happy and fulfilled is something we are all seeking for as human beings. Let’s face it, whether we like it or not, we all have to work in order to live in this world.
We all know this and every single person I have met wants to feel like what they are doing is making a difference. Whether they are unhappy in their current situation, every single person feels they are destined for something greater and more meaningful. Yet, interestingly enough, very few actually do anything because they don’t know how or what to do.
The single most important trait to have in this life, according to many of the successful people I have spoken with, is self-awareness and to understand:
- what you are good at
- what you are not good at
- what makes you tic, and
- What tics you off.
Becoming so self-aware of who you are leads to what we all are seeking, “clarity” –
Clarity of what we should be doing and how to do it and
Clarity of not only how to do it but when to do it and why we are doing it!
When we are clear, we become focused, attentive, and assertive. We begin to see what we have been searching for and more importantly how to get it.
So, Colin, how can I become more self-aware?
Simple, start paying attention! Stop hiding from your problems, stop trying to avoid confrontation, stop blaming others, stop feeling sorry for yourself, and start opening your eyes.
You have the answer, whether you choose to seek the answer is up to you.
