There are three big reasons for developing self awareness. There could be many more but the following are the one’s which help you to achieve your goals.
Eye for detail
"When you pay attention to detail, the big picture will take care of itself." George St-Pierre
A person has to have an eye for detail for doing anything worthwhile.Excellence can never be achieved unless you go deep into the subject. A person who is not self aware is likely to overlook the minute details which may be necessary for what you are doing. This signifies that such an individual always focuses on his priorities and does not miss out on anything important by getting distracted by what is not.
"Opportunities are presented to us each and every day, but do we see them. To see an opportunity we must be open to all thoughts."" Catherine Pulsifer
Unless you are self aware, opportunities will go over your head. They say opportunity is like a bald man. You have to catch from the front, you can never follow and catch an opportunity. Once it’s gone,it’s gone forever. Self awareness enables a person to be alive to any opportunity and ensures that he is active and alert in his response. This really indicates that such a person never misses the bus. He is always ahead of time.Loosing an opportunity is a bane of life, and which has literally handicapped many personalities.
No one is perfect
"Self awareness is the ability to take an honest look at your life without any attachment to it being right or wrong, good or bad." Debbie Ford
Among other things, self awareness also inculcates in the individual consciously observes his or her habits. A person is able to observe himself in terms of what is good in him and what is not. He also tries to assimilate the good of others again by observing what to emulate.Habits mainly are responsible for your day-to-day productivity. In the competitive world today, productivity is the key to growth and prosperity
