Self-awareness need not be a spiritual thing.
20-Sep-2016

Self- Awareness is a high and mighty sounding word. You probably thought of some sort of a spiritual Guru or the Gautam Buddha himself when you read it. It’s true though. Self-awareness is more often than not associated with meditation and yoga and a bunch of rigorous spiritual practices that most of us are not acquainted with or not interested in.

If you do like them, well good for you but let’s face it. For most of us meditation and trying to climb to a higher spiritual level isn’t really our cup of tea. We lead busy lives and often want to leave out these higher pursuits for the post-retirement blues.

Meditation is not for us. But Self-awareness just might be. It’s a common misconception that self-awareness has something to do with chanting mantras and finding answers to life’s difficult question.

That might be one way of doing it. But self-awareness can simply mean being aware of one’s own personality.  There are always aspects of our own personality that we are often completely unaware of.

We know our favorite foods, our beloved songs, we might know the color we like to wear on a bad day but we aren’t often aware of what makes us tick. We don’t know what kind of situations we are good at handling, we aren’t aware of aspects of our personality that help us cope with stress, we aren’t sure of what kind of social situations make us feel uncomfortable, and the list goes on.

But imagine if we were aware of these things. Just imagine if we already knew what we’re good at. We’d step forward with confidence and take charge of the situation without hesitation. We’d be able to avoid situations that we aren’t good at. Or if those situations were unavoidable we’d be able to avoid our own pitfalls.

It would make us better workers, parents, students and, in general, more efficient human beings. This is the power that self-awareness can give us.

But you might ask, how does one attain this kind of self-awareness? Well, the trick is to reflect and study your own personality in such a way that one can use one’s strengths and weaknesses to one’s advantage.

It helps to take some self-evaluation tests like the CB5 to help gauge what kind of person you are and what makes you work the way you do. Combining this with a little bit more self –reflection can make a huge difference to the everyday. So why not try a little non-spiritual self-awareness. You never know how much it might help.
