My Self Awareness

A while ago, a guy called Daniel come up to me at the gym and asked me a question that blew my mind away. Daniel is one of those charismatic people who always has a smile on his face and seems to have an instant connection with those he meets. This would explain why he is a top sales rep. “Why is it that you seem to have it all going for you Bev?”. I far from believe that I have it all going for me, I suppose I know me better than anyone else so I know the battles I have and the weaknesses I try to improve on. I definitely don’t sit around thinking I have it all. But his question did get me thinking, I do lead a pretty good life where I get to spend my day doing the things I love with amazing people who seem to always show me their best sides. 

After thinking for a second I responded; “To be honest, I think I’m doing alright because every day I stop and think about the path I’m on and if it’s the right one for me. If I discover that I’m not on that path, I make adjustments to get back in the right direction”.

If I have done one thing well in my time it is to constantly improve my self-awareness. This has been an ongoing process for me which I have evolved and is now part of my daily life.  It’s this awareness that helps me know who I am today and what actions I need to take to keep on the path that is right for me in this one life. When you think about it, most of the big changes in your life come when you either choose to stop and reflect on your life or when a big event makes you stop and think. It’s this awareness that helps you to find your path. 

What are some things that you could add to your life to bring self-awareness into it daily? 

A while ago I read the book ‘The Winners Bible’ and while I did struggle with some aspects of it I did identify with the concept of using a ‘Winners Bible’ as tool to help with self-awareness. I had been doing a similar thing for years so I thought I would create one that was more in line with some of the lessons in this book. I thought that I would share with you guys my version of it. 

Over the next few post I’m going to share my ‘winners bible’, what it means to me and how I use it. 

If you have any comments of questions feel free to post them on there. 

 

Here's a mind map of my current goals:

This is a very interesting topic, Bevan
I think we have sometimes to stop a little bit and think about in what direction we want our life to go. It's a question of choices too and self-awareness

Nice Bev, thanks for opening up your Winner's Bible for us to take a look at. I got the book for Christmas, read it and then didn't do anything with it - oops! That's not very winner-ish!

I suppose this is a superficial comment, but what program did you use to do this? Looks really good. Mine looks like crap.

Hey Andrew

I just used the Pages program on a Mac, it's their word processing program. I did try to make it beautiful looking because I have a thing for design.

Bev ;-)
