  • Organizational awareness: Being aware of relationships, attitudes, and politics of a group.
  • Service orientation: Responding to the needs of the situation.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

Social Awareness

.. means having an in-depth understanding of societal setups, communities, environments, norms, and cultures.

Human beings are social creatures, but many lack proper social awareness. In any professional or personal situation, one’s success and wellbeing largely depend on how other people are communicated with, how social interactions are managed and how efficiently one interacts with society. Social Awareness is often equated with Emotional Intelligence(EQ).

A regular meditation practice calms you and connects you to your surroundings, muting your inner noise. You then become better at observing yourself and those around you.

Life is short. Practice quick forgiveness and move on. Holding a grudge will only slow you down. 

Forgiving others frees your mind and makes it agile, not easily triggered by current situations that point towards any painful memories of the past.

Practicing affirmations (positive self-talk) and self-hypnosis removes our internal blocks and heals us from the inside while aligning the outside circumstances in our favor.

Develop Self Awareness

To know others, first, you must know yourself.

Expand your self-awareness and observe your response mechanism, trigger points and social behavior. This will also help you expand your consciousness in the long run.

See how people react to your words and your mannerisms. You may have to fine-tune your listening skills and get a glimpse of the emotional states of other people, by understanding what isn’t being said.

  • Introspection is simply looking in. Stopping there not only limits your perspective, but it can also diffuse it. It can lead some to pessimism, or even depression. 
  • Reflection is looking in so you can look out with a broader, bigger and more accurate perspective. Without reflection, your life becomes happenstance—activity without insight.

The underlying complexities of the human psyche quite often go overlooked.

Our ability to analyze and rationalize, remember and question, form ideas and take precise action.

It’s all far more incredible than we give it credit for.

But with a better understanding of the consciousness definition , we may find ourselves more aware.
