Tasha Eurich – One simple fix to be more self-aware
You all are aware of the word “self-awareness. It means knowing yourself better, and it empowers us to be more and do more. Boosts up the confidence level. And when you know yourself better you take better decisions. you might think that you are self-aware. if you are, then that’s great.
Self-awareness flourishes beautiful relationships, makes us more capable to understand anyone. but in a study, it found that 90% of the people are not self-aware. they are in their own mind trap. so if they are thinking about self-awareness they are self-aware. But it is not true. Being self-aware and thinking about self-awareness are two different things.
So probably you might fall under the category to be more self-aware.
How do we become more self-aware?
So when are in trouble never ask questions like “Why me?”
Whatever the scenario maybe- if you are feeling stuck in a lane, you just scored less in your masters or you just had a fight with your spouse for a very silly thing, or probably you lost something worthy, anything which didn’t align with your plan.
It is easy to ask questions like – Why I am so unlucky? why I am not able to do this? Why did this happen to me? etc.
But you shouldn’t ask such questions, because our brain responds to every single question you ask, and the more you ask such questions the more reasons it gives us to justify it. the answers it gives are negative most of the time.
So change the why to What.
What can I do to improve my situation?
What are the possibilities?
What are the other way round?
How can I deal with this?
You can come up with your questions which gives you a broader perspective.
