With the rise of social media and motivational speakers, many people are giving false hopes. They insist that you need to become something great in life. The reality is many of the motivational speakers are not guiding you. That is the self-awareness that is necessary to achieve anything in life.
Being self-aware is not some magic trick or a hat that you can wear anytime. It takes years of patience and self-probing questions to be completely self-aware. Also, one of the famous quotes by Buddha points out that.
“ Your worst enemy can not harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts”.
Self-awareness comes in many forms and struggles in life. Thus we bring to you three main reasons for:
Why you should be self-aware even in this technology-driven world:
Make Valuable Life Decision & Maximize Your Potential
Life is not about getting up, going to school or office, and sleep. You have one life and with that one life, you have to decide what you need to do. Remember. We, humans, have limited energy and capacity and how can we maximize our potential? Being self-aware of your surroundings, situations, and thoughts.
Famous speakers don’t tell you that motivation comes after knowing your true potential. And 2nd, the observation in life. Thus, explore and probe yourself as often as you can. One of my favorite quotes by Zig Ziglar states that:
“When you are tough on yourself, life is going to be easy on you”.
Getting tough with yourself does not mean overthinking. And not to kill yourself for all the mistakes that you have done in life. But rather accept yourself and try to overcome your mistakes in the future. When you do this you will be on the path towards a more motivated individual. And you will definitely see some great changes in your life.
Determine Your Strengths & Overcome Weaknesses
Everyone says this and we are repeating it LOUDLY. To know what you want out of life, you need to know what you are capable of. Know your strengths and weaknesses. people who say ‘I have no weaknesses are too blind to overcome their weaknesses’.
The path in changing your attitude in life starts from writing down your weaknesses. And how you are going to tackle them one by one. Know that you are human like others and it is completely okay to fail at something. Failures are not totally bad, they may teach great life lessons too! Sometimes in many things.
But the problem is. How to stop yourself from doing these small mistakes? That are causing you anxiety attacks, panic attacks, and insomnia? Well, the answer is somewhere within you.
Set Clear Goals In Life & Live It
If you are a person who loves reading. You will know that the greatest people that have lived before did this one thing. They set clear goals after knowing what they are good at and stick to them. They are the doors and do not rest until their task at hand finishes. Until or unless you set some goals in life and ask yourself. What you need out of life when you die you will never find the answer.
The answer is not out there in some hidden place locked away in a treasure but the real treasure lies in your own self. When you know that you need to achieve X in life in a certain amount of life. Give your 101% and see how much happiness it will make you feel. You will start living your life with purpose. Rather than a breathing living being who exists and drift with life like a dead fish drift in the sea.
We have given you three reasons to change your attitude in life and make something out of it. Tell us what do you think about it?
