Self-Awareness: The Breakthrough To Your Personal Freedom


It's May so, you know what that means?! We have a new challenge for this month! This one is going to revolutionize your life! You ready? This month we're going to focus on self-awareness! Now, before we get into anything I want you to take a minute to consider what comes to mind when you think of self-awareness. Do you think about what people have told you about yourself? Do you consider meditation? What does self-awareness mean to you?

Self-awareness is simple: it's being aware of yourself. When you know yourself you're not waiting for anyone to approve who you are or what you do. You don't need affirmation for every decision you make. You're not only confident, but you also thoroughly enjoy yourself!  It's amazing and completely liberating. You no longer compare yourself to others or try to live up to the standards other people place on you. You allow yourself to be yourself and you enjoy every minute of it! Self-awareness is really the foundation of your personal freedom and it changes EVERYTHING! 

So, how do you know if you're self-aware? Well, if you compare yourself to others you haven't yet discovered the personal treasures that make you special which means you're not self-aware. If you strive to fill shoes you were never meant to walk in, you're not self-aware. If you aren't satisfied with your life, but you can't figure out why, you aren't self-aware.

As much as we talk about self-awareness the majority of us don't experience the power it unleashes when we practice it. I know that if I'm honest with myself I need to develop my self-awareness. There was a time in my life a few years ago when I lived completely care-free of what people thought of me and my confidence level was a million because I knew that my identity and value stemmed from no one around me. Guys, I was living on the clouds! I was able to freely love and respect people without expecting anything in return. I was able to see beautiful people and not doubt my own beauty or compare my features to theirs. I was able to take positive feedback for exactly what it is. I didn't allow it to cause me to question myself, instead it helped me to see my blind spots and upgrade into an even more beautiful, self-appreciative version of myself. 

But over the years like many of you, I've lost intimate touch with myself. I got distracted and fell into the traps of comparison, self-doubt, and wanting to impress others. Having experienced both worlds I can tell you that being self-aware is the foundation for establishing a life of personal freedom. Without it you crumble under the pressure, with it you sore and fly with the eagles.

So, let's develop self-awareness this month! 

Here are two exercises you can practice for the next 30 days! You ready? Let's do it.

Exercise 1: Everyday look for one good thing about yourself that you didn't notice or pay attention to before. It could be something as simple as your friendliness with strangers or your joy in playing with kids. 

Benefit: The more you practice noticing good things about increases your self-awareness and results in you valuing who you are and what you have to offer.

Exercise 2: Every day spend at least 10 minutes processing how you feel about your day. Journal your thoughts and feelings. Answer questions like "What made it a good day? And What made it a bad day?"

Benefit: This will help you to see how you view the world and overtime enable you to create a better experience for yourself by changing negative thought patterns or adjusting what you expose yourself to. 

Self-awareness is the foundation of how we think about ourselves and others. It produces what we say and what we do. This month let's really dive into this and completely transform our lives. Are you with me? Trust me, if you do this you will thank me later! *Wink*

Until next time,
Xoxo!
