What is Self-Awareness? Self-Awareness is the capacity for honest introspection and the ability to bring awareness to your felt senses, thoughts, and emotions in the present moment. It’s having a clear perception of your personality, values, needs, patterns, strengths, weaknesses, and everything else that makes you tick. This requires more than an intellectual self examination. It demands a willingness to be compassionate and curious about your inner landscape, as if you were your own best friend. This type of awareness leads to personal growth and professional success. You have an opportunity to experience greater fulfillment and deeper meaning in your work and in life. It empowers you to live life honestly, in integrity, and in alignment with your values and purpose.
