Self-Awareness

It means having an accurate view of our capabilities and shortcomings and of how others see us. This is critical to develop self-acceptance, what drives self-esteem, thus alleviating conflicts with others.

Self-awareness encourages us to lead ourselves with authenticity and integrity — and in turn, better lead others. Teams with high self-awareness make better decisions, interact better with each other and manage tensions and conflicts more effectively.

Skills are temporary; meta-skills are permanent.

Learning a second language gives you a skill, a learned ability. A meta-skill, on the other hand, is your ability to learn new languages. Developing that meta-skill, makes it easier to learn a third or a fourth tongue.

The Scarcity Self-Awareness

90% of people believe they are self-aware but only 15% of them actually are. That’s an indicative that most people rather than accepting what’s going on, act on denial.

Resisting reality leaves us stuck, while accepting it leads to action. We can't always change what’s happening in the world, but we can change how we react. Accepting reality is focusing our attention on what happened rather than on what we wish should have occurred.
