Photoshop, selfies, and filters. While we are so blinded by the glamour of this outer world, we often tend to forget that the out worldly or materialistic things hardly affect us. In fact, it is one’s inner self that one should be concerned of. This is an era of weakness and strengths. If a person is open to learning and owns up to his/her mistakes, he/she is the one who knows himself better than anybody. Here are few pointers to help you develop self-awareness. 

Recognise your emotions

One should be aware of its own emotional behaviour. Having the knowledge of in which situation what your behaviour will be, will definitely help you overcome the obstacles.

Control the impact of your emotions on your work

Once you recognise your weakness and strengths try to control your weak points and its impact on your work. Don’t react right away, reacting immediately to emotional triggers can be an immense mistake. Ask for divine guidance, faith is our saving grace in our darkest moments. No matter your creed, developing a healthy relationship with the divine world will help you surmount your obstacles more easily. Replace your thoughts, negative emotions bind us to recurring negative thoughts, creating cycles of downright negative patterns. Whenever you are confronted with an emotion which is making you feel or think something bad, force it out of your mind and replace it with a different thought.

  Know what others view towards you

Every person thinks what he is doing its right but it is necessary to look at other’s point of view. You should know if your work or behaviour is satisfying others or not. And if in any case, one feels that his/her behaviour is wrong towards others then only the behaviour should change.

Keep a record of your experiences

It may be tiring to keep a record of your experiences and actions but that’s one of the sure shot ways to know whether introspection is helping you or not. You will be able to recall and reflect upon your actions if you have maintained a record of it.

A self-aware person may commit numerous mistakes but will never forget to learn a lesson from it. He/She understands and reflects upon his/her actions on regular basis and is open to new experiences in life.

The day you decide that you are more interested in being aware of your thoughts than you are in the thoughts themselves- that is the day you will find your way out.
