BECOME MORE SELF-AWARE.

  • This is not as a complex subject as it sounds.
  • Anything we frame as complex in life, we stay away from or worse still, we leave it to the experts.
  • Self-awareness is a gift we have all been given but has too often been dismissed as too complicated so we deem it unnecessary to know about.
  • ONE THING is so very important about becoming self-aware:  ASK THE STUPID QUESTIONS. 
  • Why do so many shy away from asking the questions when we don’t know or not sure if we understand???  The answer to that is called “self-consciousness”.   
    • Being self-aware says; it is more important to know than to worry about “looking silly”
  • There is no problem that does not have a suitable solution and that the solution can often be found in the circumstances that create the problem ...
    • …. .. every problem has a solution. But the solution is in the question! You ask the right question and the problem will reveal the solution.
  • Questions are the answer:
    • ... "If you define the problem correctly, you almost have the solution" - Steve Jobs
    • "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them" - Albert Einstein
  • Lack of self-awareness can push us away from a relationship with ourselves. 
  • ** If we don’t know who we truly are, we will live someone else’s version of our lives.
  • We must LOVE ourselves despite what much of the church has tried to teach us. (to put under the flesh does not mean to dimmish self-awareness!!)
    • to put down the flesh deals more with non-fruitful thinking and carnal desires than it does our body (temple) and our self-worth (whom Jesus died for)
  • Mark 12:30-31New Living Translation. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. 31 The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these.
  • By loving self, we can then love others and accept them for who they are!!
    • By loving self – we don’t have to try to conform nor get others to conform to us!

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is in and among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith.

Psalm 139:13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.

  • We all came into THIS world at this time for Kingdom a kingdom mission.the place and people in your life are a result of your decisions but your mission purpose remains the same!
  • Jesus was very self-aware. He understood who he was, what he came to earth to do, and how he was going to accomplish the mission (Mark 1:52; Mt. 28:29-30).
  • ** understanding who we are, how we think, and how we operate is vital to knowing who we are and who God has called us to be. (not “what” but who)
  • What exactly is self-awareness? Self-awareness has been defined as the ability to make an accurate assessment of your own personality, strengths and weaknesses.
    • It is the conscious knowledge of one’s own character, emotions, desires, and motivations.
  • Self-awareness is NOT same as self-conscious.  self-consciousness is ego based…which only focuses inward—
  • Self-awareness does not cause us to fixate on ourselves but to better understand how uniquely God created us.
  • simple definition of self-awareness is the ability to think about yourself and how and why you think that way.
    • It is the gift of self-knowledge which becomes self-knowing.
    • It is having thoughts but not becoming them.
    • Self-awareness is the ability to disengage autopilot thinking and fly your life manually.
    • Just because you think it, doesn’t mean you have to catch it
    • “It’s just how I am”, is never true
  • Self-Awareness is based on the idea that you are not your thoughts, (thoughts enter) but the entity observing your thoughts; you are the thinker, separate and apart from your thoughts.  IT IS AS A MAN THINKS!!!! So is he!
  • When discovering a discrepancy in our efficiency and desired outcome – it is through self-awareness we determine to do something to correct the discrepancy.
    • …For example; take a course.  Hire a mentor/coach.  Do the research or whatever is required to make you the better person you now desire to be!!
