Top 5 Tips: Top 5 Ways to Become More Self-Aware


Do you really understand yourself? This is what Self Awareness all about. People of high self awareness knows what they want and what’s right for themselves. Here are my top 5 ways to enhance your Self Awareness:

1. Have Some Time Being Alone. This makes your attention going inward instead of just focusing outside.

2. Focus on Now. There are about 60,000 thoughts each day. Most of them are about either the future or the past. But missing the Now. Furthermore, 90% of our thoughts are just repetitions of those thoughts we had before. Practice asking yourself: What do I feel now? What am I thinking now?

3. Ask Yourself Questions. We seldom ask questions as we are educated to answer instead of asking. Ask yourself questions and hear your own answers.

4. Rethink Your Conclusions. What are you absolutely sure of? Make a long, long list of everything you are 100% sure. Then ask yourself for any other possibility for each of the items.

5. Settle Unfinished Business. Unfinished business blocks our vision towards our true self. List all you should have done but still outstanding, including all your regrets and issues that still make you angry. Finish them, one by one.
