Why Is Self-Awareness Important?
Self-awareness is step number one and the cornerstone of emotional intelligence. Without adequate self-awareness, we struggle to understand others, to manage ourselves, and to develop healthy relationships. Self-awareness is a process. Because the world around us is continuously changing, and because we are forever changing, we never finish developing our own sense of self-awareness. Self-awareness is never wholly about one’s own self. We mostly learn about ourselves in relation to others. No one succeeds alone. All major accomplishments occur within a system of cooperation and competition. . To learn who we are, we have to act upon the world by trying things. We learn by action, by making mistakes, and by learning from these mistakes. We cannot become self-aware solely through self-reflection. We must act upon our world to learn from it. A good, successful life begins with self-awareness. Robert Pasick, Ph.D. 12 Februari 2018 https://robpasick.com/self-awareness-important/
