Part 1: Self Awareness
Transcript of Part 1: Self Awareness
1. You're a bully.
Because it helps you set and achieve your goals, make sound decisions, improve your people skills and relationships, and cultivate a sense of inner peace. Self-awareness can help you get anywhere you want in life as long as you know how to use it to your advantage.
WHY SELF-AWARENESS IS YOUR
YOU’RE CONSCIOUS OF YOUR EMOTIONS AND HOW YOU REACT TO THEM.
Goal: Emotional Intelligence
Part 1: Self Awareness
Does It Matter?
Self awareness is the foundation of personal growth and success. The ability to recognize an emotion as it “happens” is the key to your EQ. Developing self-awareness requires tuning in to your true feelings. If you evaluate your emotions, you can manage them. The major elements of self-awareness are:
Emotional awareness. Your ability to recognize your own emotions and their effects.
Keep a journal of your feelings.
Write down what was happening, what you're feeling, and how you reacted. Was there a physical reaction, such as racing heart, sore neck and shoulders?
Make a list of your roles and write down the feeling connected to each role.
You might be a brother, sister, employee, husband, wife, mother, father, sportsman or woman - think of as many as you can. Your feelings for each role might be happy, frustrated, anxious...again, think of as many as you can.
Predict how you will feel
: think about a situation you're going into and predict how you will feel. Practice naming and accepting the feelings. You might say "I may feel angry", or "I may feel frustrated". Naming the feeling puts you in control. Try to choose an appropriate reaction to the feeling rather than just reacting to it.
-The ability to monitor our emotions and thoughts from moment to moment is key to understanding ourselves better, being at peace with who we are and proactively managing our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.
-Self-aware people tend to act consciously rather than react passively, to be in good psychological health and to have a positive outlook on life. They also have greater depth of life experience and are more likely to be more compassionate to themselves and others.
2. You're defensive.
3. You're controlling.
4. You're passive agressive.
5. Your behavior changes.
6. You make excuses.
You go on the offensive and bully to protect something deep within you, something you don't want people to see, often feelings of weakness and vulnerability. Ironic, isn't it?
When genuine and objective feedback makes them agitated or even angry, that's a sure sign
When you behave in a controlling way--when you micromanage, pick on the little things--it usually means you're not dealing with a big thing that's really bugging you. It means you're not paying attention to something really important. Left unchecked, that can definitely take you down a dark path.
When you say, "Sure, no problem," then turn around and do the exact opposite, it means you don't want to confront others or be confronted by them
When your behavior changes to the point where it's noticeable to others who know or work with you, that's definitely a sign that you're really bothered by something and not aware of how it's affecting your mood. If someone brings it to your attention and you're defensive, that's an even bigger sign.
Signs You're Not as Self-Aware as You Think
Excuses, any kind of excuses, are ways of avoiding or deflecting negative attention. Pointing fingers and blaming others are common avoidance techniques that communicate our resistance to being held accountable. That's why playing the blame game is such a transparent sign of dysfunctional leadership or management. And yet, we see it all-too-often, don't we?
YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO CHANGE.
YOU’RE MINDFUL OF YOUR ACTIONS.
