Develop self-awareness
Self Awareness is having a clear perception of your personality, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. Self Awareness allows you to understand other people, how they perceive you, your attitude and your responses to them in the moment.

With better self–awareness, we can improve our relationships, and reach our goals more effectively so that we can live the life we desire. Self-awareness leads to better self-assessment and finally to greater self confidence.
Self awareness is developed through practice in focusing your attention on the details of your personality and behavior in the moment. A mindfulness practice is the foundation for self-awareness.
