Challenges can be daunting, but we can improve self-awareness to embrace them and grow. We all go through a variety of seasons and personalities as we grow up and turn into the best version of ourselves. These various personalities and seasons are frequently imprinted on us as adults. When this happens, it can feel a bit chaotic if we don’t have deep roots.
Improve self-awareness to overcome obstacles
There are things happening that are outside of our control, but if we become masters of what’s within us, we can overcome any challenge. You have to have the discipline and confidence within yourself to not let the outside world determine your value. It’s a cold world outside (for some of us, literally!), so we need to do some work on the inside. You can use the Hedgehog Concept:
- What can you be the best in the world at?
- What are you deeply passionate about?
- What drives your economic engine?
Envision these three questions in three circles. The intersection of the circles is the sweet spot that you need to find. And to do that, you need to dig deep into your roots. As we examine the causes of our actions and beliefs, we dig those roots deeper. The deeper we dig the root, the higher the summit.
For instance, Glenn’s team had their weekly team meeting yesterday, where they talked about their core values and their vision as a company. During that meeting, they dug deep and talked about what the company they are building should look like. Everyone on the team agreed that they are digging their roots really deep so that they can build incredible summits.
This is something that holds true for you as well. Enroll your team in your vision to enable your entire team to create the impact you collectively desire. Business outcomes achieved in this manner are incredibly rewarding.
When it’s cold outside, work on the inside
Once you remember who created you and where you come from, take the time to dig those roots deeper. If you do that, the summit of what’s possible only gets higher and higher. How crazy is that? We need to make sure we are focused not only on the external but also on what happens internally. We must do everything in our power to establish those roots.
The rest of the world may tell you that you are average, that you are not good enough, or that you just don’t have it in you. But here’s the truth: Everything we seek is already within us. Every problem you face is a chance to find your inner strength and grow.
It’s a cold, cruel world out there. The answers are within us. When we improve our self-awareness, we get the answers we need to overcome any obstacle. You just need to dig deep and do the work. You deserve it.
Conclusion: Improve self-awareness
Self-exploration is the key to unlocking your true potential. It’s a cold, cruel world out there. The answers are within us. The more inside work we do, the more connected we get. You just need to dig deep and do the work.
- We can only find the keys to unlocking our true inner potential through self-exploration.
- The more we listen to the whispers inside, the more rooted and connected we get.
- Deep roots allow us to react with intentional actions even when we are responding to unintentional behavior and situations.
