How To Be More Self Aware

Why would you want to know who you are? Why would you want to know your talents, strengths and weaknesses? Why is important? Why would you care? Who should care?You should be your own best self! You should know who you are, so you can improve your weaknesses, work more on your talents, try to make the most out of your strengths.

Self-Awareness can make you feel more happy, because you are more aware of your actions, feelings and emotions. Your relationships can improve, you can better perform at work…

If you wanna develop self awareness you need to ask yourself some deep questions? Just ask! But yourself! This is the only way how you can get to know yourself better. Asking yourself questions at all times, on a daily basis.

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.”
― Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

You can”t get away from yourself by moving from one place to another, is another quote by Ernest Hemingway that I love so much. It teaches us that all is within you. All your flaws and victories. People travel massively. They are being bored in their home country, and that is all right. But if you are not happy in your country, how can you be more happy in another? You can”t get away from yourself by moving from one place to another. You better know who you are!

You need to find yourself again. You need to forgive yourself and praise those victories. You need to know yourself better.

Yoga and meditation is one of the tools that can improve your self-awareness. I like it so much, especially meditation, and yoga of course (I don”t know which is more important to me), because it teaches me to be more self-aware of my thoughts, feelings, emotions, habits, actions, etc. Yoga is one of the self-aware tools to wake up your body, to be more awake in general.

Self awareness doesn”t stop you from making mistakes, it allows you to learn from them. You are not going to beat yourself up by making mistakes, rather, you will learn from them, accept them, and move on, try different approach.

When it comes to making mistakes, you are aware that this is a journey. The ones who are successful now, they made most mistakes, and you should know about that, be aware of it.

“It does not matter how long you are spending on the earth, how much money you have gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive vibration you have radiated in life that matters,”
― Amit Ray

Don”t compromise yourself. You”re all what you”ve got said Janis Joplin. Know who you are and you are going to be unstoppable. Do you know the saying: “Know Thyself”? It is knowing your core being. It is knowing why you are doing certain actions. etc.

You cannot move from one point to another (better one) if you are not aware of the situation that you are in now. You need to accept the situation you are in now. You need to look closely at the situation, what led you to here, how you ended up here, and how you are going to move on to next, again (better one).

Journaling is one of the best methods to get to know yourself better. What did they say, what it meant for you, how you felt about that, how did you responded to this. It is really great method to see what is going on underneath the surface for you.

Mindful activities. When you wash your hands. Shower. Feel that water on your body. Rubbing soap in hour hands. It is training you to be more mindful in other situations.

“I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing.”
― Socrates

Record yourself. 😀 How bad do you wanna to get to know yourself better? You can record just your voice, or record yourself whole, talking to camera. It is a great exercise to see how the world perceives you. Tonality of your voice and your face expressions are everything. You are going to better perform selling yourself, at a job interviews, you will have better communication in general, your relationships will improve.

Working on your perception you can deliver your message better. People will start taking you seriously. But with a poor posture and low tone of voice will not take you anywhere. Start acting like the most confident person, like the one who has all in his or her hands. That is working on yourself. Working on being more self aware.

“Wisdom tends to grow in proportion to one’s awareness of one’s ignorance.”– Anthony de Mello

How To Raise Your Vibration

Don”t you wanna live your life to the fullest? Everyone would love to feel happy, fulfilled and joyful all the time. It is possible, for the majority of time, but it takes practice, lots of refocusing on the things that you want, feeling good about your current situations, taking actions regularly and believing in yourself. How to raise your vibration never been easier.

The key word here is feel. Feelings are so powerful. Cherish the ones that you feel the best with. Go and make the shortcut, find the reason why should you be grateful NOW.

I have a list of things on a piece of paper that I go through whenever I feel negative emotions. The list of things you can do too are: laying on your bed and listening favorite music, spend time in nature, read a book about your favorite topic, playing with your pet, meditate, watch comedies… Make your own list. Everybody”s list are different, you make your own unique.

There is so much more, like a movements, like drinking plenty of water and gratitude. Also, let”s say you “hate” your job, and you are trying to build your own business, just to end that slavery and become time free and financially free. Everyday you are running thoughts in your head like a: “When will all stop?”, “Why am I here trapped even though I know I can do it much better?”, “Why me?”, “I feel so tired, this job sucks energy out of me!”, “Why I need to go through all of this?”, “Not one more day there!” You get the point?!

That would not put you in a state of gratitude, excitement and joy, right? So, re frame it! You can say something like this: “Soon I will quit that job.” “I am working on it.” I am building my on line businesses, and eventually I will quit that job.” “Nothing lasts forever, so this will end up as well.” Do you understand now the power of re framing words? Words that you speak to yourself and out loud are also powerful. Everything is, all that you emanating out comes back to you.

There is actually a thousands ways how to vibrate high, how to feel good. There are thousands of books, courses, teachings, one of them is this one HERE. There is a small test that will show you where are you on the list when it comes to manifesting either your soul mate, dream job, lottery, or anything else. This audio book is life changing. The changes will not occur if you don”t open yourself up to a new things, new teachings. Open yourself up, think outside of the box, and watch what will happen. Just open yourself up, really listen what they have to say, and work on it, take some action, NOW. Tomorrow might be to late. Don”t forget that you are creators, not observers.
