Do You Have This Important Self-Awareness Skill?

Do You Have This Self-Awareness Important Skill?
Susan Vernicek
Written by Susan Vernicek

I’ve got a skill that has worked magic for me over the last decade.

It’s Friday AM and maybe your sippin’ on a cup of joe like I am or maybe it’s tea, or maybe it’s spiked tea or coffee, LOL

I’m aware that I haven’t showered yet, or fit in my 30-minute at-home workout. I’m also aware that my twins, June and Cade have their stuffed animals literally all over the house, and their booger-y blankets are in my bed. Yea, I’m so aware that I’m grossed out thinking about it and having to touch them when I wash their blankies every week.

Hey, I’ve never claimed to be supermom. 

I’m aware that I just MAY forget that I have to now pick the twins up for early dismissal and I may forget, so let me set 5 alarms.   

I’m really aware that I just cracked and broke my milk frother for my coffee.  So sad and yes, it’s chaos over here for sure.  

However, I’ve got a skill that has worked magic for me over the last decade. 

It’s called Self-Awareness.

Self-Awareness is a mental strength skill. With all this self-awareness, I’ve discovered how to laugh at this hot mess, find the bright side in every situation, and move forward.

Let me ask you something?

Can you list at least 3 things you did well this week or 3 things you’re proud of? I’m not asking for your final results, I’m asking for how you showed up at work, at home, as Mom, as Wife, with your health, fitness or as the boss of your own business?  

How engaged and aware were you?  

I want you to tap into your effort from this past week. That’s the kind of self-awareness I’m talking about. Why? Because when you are tapped into this kind of awareness, your effort, your thoughts, your shifts and consistently—the growth, success, and results usually fall into right into place. 

Expert Example

Dig deeper into your awareness.  Instead of “I ate better”, celebrate more specifically. “I cut out all dairy this week”, “I’m hydrated because I finally drank half my body weight in ounces of water”  or Instead of “I worked out” to “I’ve finished a full week of my program at the modified level, and I built my form and posture so my foundation is getting stronger” Or “I didn’t yell at my children for the stupid stuffed animals all over the place, I shrugged my shoulders because really what’s it harming?”  

Our brains are wired to focus on the negatives and what’s lacking or what’s not working. That’s keeping the resistance with your self-awareness, effort, and reason to celebrate.  We’ve got to implement and practice this skill so we experience a bit more balance—mentally.

With my signature “Get All A’s” formula, I’m able to process my awareness quicker.  What have I had to Accept, embrace and own this week? What did I stand up to in not accepting?  Rude behavior? Breaking self-trust?

What do you Appreciate from this past week? What or who helped you, guided you or supported you? Then the last A is all about Achieving, which brings us back to what did you do well, how did you give your best A game? Self-Awareness has many layers, but let’s start with your daily effort.  

I’d love to hear what effort you’re proud of from this past week? I’d love to invite you to a FREE training starting next week (February 10th). The Most Authentic Self-Awareness Practices You Need for Success. You can join us HERE.
