107 self-awareness activities to live a robust and fulfilling life

Lack of self-awareness is like a blind man trying to drive a car. He can steer with his front wheels, but he has no idea where he will end up.

If you don’t know where you are going, how can you possibly know when you have arrived? And without a clear picture of who you are and where you are going, it is impossible to have any real sense of direction.

In the world of personal development, self-awareness is king.

Without it, it is almost impossible to make any progress whatsoever.

You see, if you do not understand where you are coming from, it is difficult (if not impossible) to go anywhere else. You will be mired in a sea of confusion and frustration.

On the other hand, once you develop a strong sense of self-awareness, everything else in your life will fall into place. It is almost like discovering a secret map that shows you the hidden pathways that connect the dots of your life.

Sadly so many people never learn this. They never discover the value of self-awareness. And thus, they spend a lifetime struggling.

In this article, I’m going to reveal how to use self-awareness activities to help you learn to become aware of your true self.
