Self-Awareness

Your personal success depends solely on your ability to be honest with self. What is success to you? How do you plan to obtain that personal level of success? Are you willing to sacrifice time, pleasure and even sleep for it? Before moving forward to answering any of the three prior questions, you must first address one key component; self-awareness. Self-awareness as described, is being conscious of one’s character, feelings, abilities and desires. To simplify, what do you offer to society? This question could be answered in more ways than one, but only from you through personal awareness. I’ve developed a series of short questions to consider while determining your contribution. What do you do well? What would you wake up and do daily, even if you wouldn’t be paid for it? What is your ideal job? What is your passion? Determining your passion is likely to be the number one step in self-awareness. After keening in on passion, you would then have the essential tools needed to move forward in answering the three prior questions of success.What is success to you? How do you plan to obtain that personal level of success? Are you willing to sacrifice time, pleasure and even sleep for it? Only through relentless hours of honesty and self-auditing can this be obtained. By no means is it an easy or overnight process, but I urge you to make it a priority at this very instance, for the well-being of your success depends on your ability to be honest within. I’ll conclude with the cliche story of Micheal Jordan and Scottie Pippen. Of course, we’d all love to be the star player (Jordan) but I’m aware that there must be an assist man (Pippen) that plays a lesser role but contributes equally to the success of the team. Metaphorically speaking, the team is society, and we are it’s players. Whether you’re the number one player (Jordan) number two (Pippen) or even the number three player who doesn’t receive as much notoriety, you have a role on this “team” that we call society. Now please, dig deep within self and find YOUR role. Self-awareness!
