Last week’s blog post talked about a general definition of EI with its four domains: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management. With today’s post we are going to take a deep-dive into the first attribute, self-awareness and learn how to monitor our own stress, thoughts, emotions, and beliefs.
In her TED talk , psychologist Tasha Eurich provides a simple way we can get to know ourselves just a little bit better and covers the following points:
📍 Definition of self-awareness
📍 Benefits of being self-aware
📍 Reasons why we are doing it all wrong & why we shouldn’t ask “why”
📍 Asking “what” and how this approach moves us forward to our future
If you are as eager as us to build and practice your self-awareness now, here are some of the most effective ways to do so:
Also, if you are not sure about your own strengths and weaknesses, why not take this free personality test and get a description of who you are and why you do things the way you do.
Summing up, self-awareness has the potential to enhance virtually every experience you have, as it’s a tool and a practice that can be used anywhere, anytime, to ground yourself in the moment, realistically evaluate yourself and the situation, and help you make good choices.
Self-awareness gives us power! Let’s get it!
