The Power Of Self-Awareness

When it comes to learnable skills that can change your life and help you become a true force to be reckoned with in the world, there's one that seems to exist apart from all others.

And that skill is self-awareness.

Self-awareness enables you to see your own patterns clearly. It awards you the perspective and objectivity to choose a different response to things, instead of being stuck in the prison of habitual reactions.

And it's a skill that can be cultivated like any other. You just need to know how, and apply it relentlessly.

In this episode, Dean and Shane discuss the trans-formative potential of self-awareness as a practicable skill. And as always, expect some practical tips and takeaways.
