4 Keys To Self Awareness


In the game of life almost everyone wants to win at something, and it got me thinking about how we approached trying to win a game as a PRO athlete.

In the NFL winning the game can come down to the most minute detail. You can do everything right for 90% of the game, but a mental error here, blown assignment there, or lack of awareness in a single situation during the game can be the difference between victory and defeat. Because the margin for victory is so small our coaches would spend hours studying the opponent, how they respond in specific situations, creating game plans, and communicate everything they had seen so that we had an awareness of the exact keys that it would take for us to win the game.

A great coach knows when to press the gas pedal, and when rest may be needed. A great coach holds their team accountable to the standard, and knows how to motivate each of the players individually to get the most out of each of their talents.

A great coach is constantly analyzing the available data looking for the one or two things that will give their team an advantage, and ultimately a great coach understands how to put their team in the best position to win.

The greatest coaches are able to win if they have to come from behind, are able to bounce back and make adjustments in game, and even when they don’t have the most talented team on paper they are able to win because of their game plan on execution.

When we apply this same process and strategy to our personal lives using self awareness we gain access to the tools that allows us to coach ourselves to our highest level so that we can actualize our full potential.

To win our individual games of life we can’t only rely on others to coach, challenge, and push us, we have to develop ourselves into being our own great coach by utilizing self awareness.

Self awareness is more than knowing what your strengths and weaknesses are, with self awareness you know exactly how to put yourself in position to win regardless of the situation.

On today’s episode we’re going to talk about self awareness, why it is so key to leveling up, and I share 4 keys that you can implement so that you can perform at your highest level.
