Prior to pursuing love, happiness, and success, we need to evaluate ourselves. It is only once we have established our core beliefs, values, characteristics, and attributes that we can develop confidence in our own abilities, cultivate more meaningful relationships, and invest ourselves in others.
Self-awareness is the catalyst to peace of mind. When we understand who we are and what we believe, it frees us from judgement and expectation. We are able to embrace our strengths and accept our weaknesses, and ultimately begin to develop a greater sense of self-worth. It is this combination of self-awareness and self-esteem that ultimately enable us to exercise patience, empathy, and forgiveness in our relationships.
Self-awareness, Self-esteem, and Selflessness are the prerequisites to leading a more passionate, fulfilling, and successful life.
