Powerful Ways to Build Your Self Awareness Muscle




In the coaching/therapy space that I work in, self-awareness is often heralded to be the key to personal growth and fulfilment.

Until I reached around 40, I felt quite confident in my self-awareness. But when I started delving into deeper introspection and had the mirror held up, I realised I'd been wearing blinkers, oblivious to important parts of myself. Ignorance can feel comfortable (or even blissful), but once those unseen aspects of ourselves start to surface, they can't be ignored any longer.

Self-awareness researcher Tasha Eurich discovered that 95% of people believe they are self-aware, however, only 12–15% possess both high internal and external self-awareness (I spoke about Tasha Eurich’s archetypes previously).

How would you rate your self-awareness?

Eurich’s research suggests that there’s a profound opportunity within each of us to deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. I believe self-awareness is the most powerful practice we can embody to discover true emotional freedom and deeper connections.

Imagine for a moment that every external trigger, every challenge and every uncomfortable conversation could serve as a stepping stone towards greater self-awareness. As we peel back the layers of our consciousness, we not only enrich our own lives but also become catalysts for transformation in the lives of those around us.

So, how do we embark on this journey of self-awareness?

In today’s podcast I share Powerful Ways to Flex your Self Awareness Muscle, here are a few areas I will be discussing:

  • The power of brave conversations
  • Why presence and mindfulness hold the key to our awareness
  • Why feedback is your friend How working with a Coach or Therapist can expand your self-awareness
  • Why journaling is a powerful tool for awareness (get my prompts)
  • The role of empathy and compassion in building awareness

As we embark on this journey of self-awareness, let us remember the words of Eckhart Tolle: “Awareness is the greatest agent for change”. May we courageously shine the light on the seen and unseen aspects of ourselves, paving the way for growth, healing, and transformation. Tune into the full podcast where I dive deeper into this topic.
