Welcome Back…The benefits of increasing your self-awareness are abundant. By increasing your self-awareness, you’ll be a better leader, a more successful business owner, have better relationships, and have a more fulfilled life in both your work and your personal life. You’ll improve your self-control as well as how you relate to others and your business, and you’ll reach your goals faster. Digging deep and paying attention so that you can see how you react or behave in certain situations will give you an insight and additional information about your behavior, performance, and how you make decisions. By doing this, you can become more proactive about how a situation may unfold and how you’d like to handle it. Self-awareness will help you reach your goals not only by making sure you are going in the right direction but you’ll be able to view situations more objectively and think through how your decisions may impact your business or your personal life.


Most people let their past influence their self-awareness. By taking the time to dig into the stories, you may be telling yourself, as well as why you are currently believing what you believe about yourself, you can decide how you want your past to influence your future. Did you know that you can simply let your past be in your past? When you make a decision that what you do today is what is going to impact your future, you may start thinking about things differently. If your life is filled with anger and resentment, or maybe fear of the unknown, you have the power of self-awareness to reframe your life to be filled with joy and possibility. Take some time to reflect on how you currently see your business or your personal life. Where do you want to make changes? What are you willing to do differently? You can become more self-aware by increasing your awareness by questioning your current perspective and incorporating new beliefs so that you can reach your goals or achieve more fulfillment in your business or your personal life. By being clear and purposeful about what you truly want in your business or your personal life, you can do so much more for yourself. You can develop new behaviors so that you can reach your goals, and over time these behaviors will become habits. Recognize any triggers that bring you back to a belief you’ve had in the past, but learn to be proactive about how you handle it in the future. You’ll be able to grow from these past experiences to where you really want to be in your business and your personal life. Self-awareness will not only help you begin a new journey, but it will also help you build your motivation to continue down your path to success.


You need to understand yourself. Self-awareness will help you to understand your strengths and weaknesses by monitoring your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and your beliefs. You need to be objective about what you find when you are being self-aware and apply self-control. You need to observe your actions and your inactions. You need to keep an open mind, and rather than judging yourself, you can get so much further by being non-judgmental and accepting who you are. By gaining self-awareness, you’ll have the ability to look inward and to relate to everything in your business and your personal life much better. Understanding your limitations and having self-awareness most likely will cause you to take action for improvement knowing where you currently are and where you may find your weaknesses. Self-awareness increases your overall potential. Being able to manage your thoughts, feelings, and your behaviors proactively rather than reactively leads to a better overall business and personal life. Think about where you are now and where you want to be. What does your ideal self as a business owner look like? How about your ideal self in your personal life? Where are you currently, and do you know the steps you need to take to get to your ideal self?


Let’s take, for example, a business owner who is self-aware that they lack the knowledge of how to do the bookkeeping for their business. Knowing their weakness, they will either get the help they need to increase their knowledge about how to do their bookkeeping correctly themselves, or they will hire a bookkeeper to do their bookkeeping for them. A business owner who doesn’t take the time to be self-aware and understand their strengths and weaknesses may continue to do their own bookkeeping without getting any help and may be relying on financial statements that are incorrect. The business owner who receives the help they need and has accurate financial statements will be able to make much better business decisions.


So, how can you become more self-aware on your own? You can be aware of your strengths and weaknesses, understand your emotions as well as how you react to them, you can monitor how you are thinking, how you feel about it, and the behaviors you take, you can think about how your actions are impacting others, you can try meditation, you can get to know your values, you can practice self-discipline, which I talk about in episode 134 of the Mastering Your Small Business Finances podcast, and you can get feedback from others. When you understand and know yourself better, you’ll react differently in situations that come up in both your business and your personal life. You’ll avoid unnecessary conflict, stay grounded, be more productive, and be more focused on tasks. Self-awareness leads to a greater well-being.


You can increase your self-awareness on your own, but when you work with a certified life coach like me, you’ll not only become more self-aware, but you’ll receive honest feedback and tools to create the future you want to achieve and deserve. When you work with a certified life coach, you’ll be able to recognize and be aware of the blind spots that may be holding you back. You’ll see the importance of reaching your greatest potential. While we work together to solve problems and consistently work towards your goals, you’ll reach your goals quicker, and your journey to reach your goals will be easier. You’ll also benefit from results like avoiding burnout, increasing your overall satisfaction, building better relationships, and leading a more fulfilled life.


Self-awareness helps you to bring clarity to how you see yourself and gives you an understanding of how others see you by cultivating it, you can take action so that you can be proactive on your journey to reach your goals and increase your well-being.
