Key #1: Self-Awareness

Self-awareness is the foundation of all personal and professional development.

It’s your ability to develop a clear perception of yourself.

A holistic perception that includes;

  • your feelings, actions and thoughts
  • your beliefs and motivations
  • your hopes and dreams
  • your values and needs
  • your talents, skills and personal interests.

The greater your self-awareness, the more you’ll understand other people and how they perceive you, your attitude and your responses to them in that relationship.

Developing self-awareness is a process of asking questions of yourself and others, getting feedback and noticing how others respond to you.

  • It’s about self-reflection and asking yourself what you don’t know about yourself.
  • It’s about being willing to have an open heart and mind so you continue to learn.
  • It’s about waking up and noticing what’s going on in your life.

Self-awareness is the first step to personal mastery. It allows you to have greater choice about where you want to focus your attention in life. Self-awareness is a major component of emotional intelligence and achieving what is important to you.

Self-awareness leads to clarity. It allows you to make changes specifically where they need to be made in your behaviour, actions or thoughts.

Self-awareness puts you firmly in charge of your own life.
