In his motivational talks, Matthew Parker Indiana realized that the biggest problem with improving oneself was a lack of self-awareness. He believes that self-awareness holds the power to help build a feeling of security and comfort that cannot be built by something else
Below are some important things you need to be aware of yourself:
What is your personality?
You need to know your personality. You could be sunny and chatty, strong-willed, opinionated, easy going and relaxed. Your personality leads you to specific jobs and dictates how we deal with other people.
What is your gift?
Are you talented in mathematics or gifted in music? Are you very organizational or people oriented? You are more likely to be successful in pursuing your gift using the same effort that you would when pursuing any other direction.
Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
Can you stand the crowds or you like your space? Are you outgoing or love staying indoors? Both types of personalities are okay, and none is better than the other.
What skills do you have?
Skills are developed from the knowledge that you acquire from school. The skill could be in social sciences, arts, medicine, or commerce among other disciplines.
How have the life experiences shaped you?
Where is your childhood home? How was it growing up in the area? Your life takes a course that is heavily reliant on the life experiences that you had in the past. The experiences also shape how you view others and your opinion on the common life issues. You can use your life experiences to your advantage and take the lessons learned in order to improve certain areas of your life that are not working well.
You have all that it takes to improve yourself. As Matthew Parker Indiana puts it: “Just do it.”
