How Self-Awareness can bring you Meaningful, Powerful, and Inspiring Relationships


By: Sonia Di Maulo, Feedback Enthusiast


What is self-awareness?

MPj04023250000[1]Self-awareness means being aware of how we feel (mind, emotions, spirit, physical) and why we feel this way. It is a great skill to learn and continue to perfect day to day. 


Why is being self-aware important?

Understanding how we feel allows us to:

  • Channel our energies and passion to the right areas
  • Inspire ourselves
  • Inspire those around us


Sam is self-aware. Samantha is not quite there yet.


MPj04431300000[1]Sam has been working hard; his physical energy is low & he is knows it! He decides to slow down today, sleep an extra hour and avoid a strenuous workout. He benefits and so do the people around him. Sam is calm and as in a rypple effect everyone he encounters is calm. As a result of being focused and aware, Sam is able to identify the needs of his people. He smiles and is at his best. People smile when they are near him.


MPj04223250000[1]Samantha has also been working hard; her physical energy is also low but she is not listening to her body’s signals. She sleeps less to get it all done, gives an extra effort during her workout in less time, and then unknowingly affects the people around her.  Stress and anxiety ooze out of her and the people around her absorb this energy. Smiling is difficult with all that needs to get done! No one smiles around her.


Are these scenarios familiar? Are they realistic? I bet it’s easy to identify these situations in other people, but do they happen to you?

  • Are you a Sam or a Samantha?
  • Which leader would you want to work for?
  • Whom would you want to have a personal relationship with?


Samantha means well; she would benefit from learning how to listen to and act on her state of mind, emotion, spirit, and physical well-being.

If there was an easy to use free program that can help you and those around you become more self-aware, would you be interested in hearing about it? 


2010 is *your* year of self-awareness!

Being self-aware is a lifelong journey.  We never attain perfect self-awareness because life is well… life. Changes happen all around us, we communicate with others constantly, and anything can happen at any time. We live in our own reality show… the goal is to make this show enjoyable for others and for us to enjoy being a part of.


Sam and Samantha could both benefit from enhancing their self-awareness. 


Here are some benefits of being self-aware (you may have others):


  • To inspire those around us.
    • MPj04074380000[1]Being self-aware allows you to make the right decisions for you.
    • So that you can engage in meaningful, powerful, and inspiring relationships with others.
    • Like Samantha… she was not able to see that her people were being affected by her stress and consequently affecting customer and co-worker relationships.


  •  To be inspired.
    • Are you looking to start something new, improve an aspect of your life, or take on additional responsibilities?
    • Being self-aware will help you “see” things that you would not otherwise be able to “see”.
    • When I feel great in all aspects of my being, I become very aware of my surroundings and how my actions and behaviours affect others. I am outward-focused and find inspiration in all things.


  • To improve your daily conversations.
    • Like Sam, knowing your state of mind, emotion, spirit, and physical well-being allows you to communicate effectively.
    • You are better able to positively enhance their day and work performance through better conversations.



  • To align your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being.
    • Alignment creates positive energy.
    • People are attracted to positive energy because you are on fire! Your heat warms minds, emotions, spirits, and hearts!



Who would benefit from being self-aware?

Anyone! In particular anyone who leads people such as managers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners. Others that can also benefit: mothers/fathers, husbands/wives, daughters/sons, co-workers, sports coaches, teachers, and more…

    I went back to this posting to help me center myself – there are so many people and responsibilities pulling at me in different directions that I realize the need to be self-aware in order to be able to respond to all my obligations. It all starts within ourselves in order to summon the strength of character and physical stamina needed to succeed and inspire others!

    Many people find it very difficult to meet
    the right kind of partners to date because of the amount of time they spend on work.
    Online Leeds Escorts and dating Service has become a very popular method for
    meeting and finding a partner for a relationship.
    You end up revealing many personal details over the course of an online dating relationship, but these details can be used against you to steal your identity.

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    . Whatever the occasion, this gemstone is the granddaddy of all
    gems. According to the place where the warehouse is situated and the cost of
    shipment the cost of the diamond ring also changes.

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
