We’ve all had those situations where we think we know the answer, but we really don’t. The truth is, in certain situations you are as likely to be wrong as right. This is why the question of self-awareness is so important. In a nutshell, self-awareness is a mindset that you have of yourself. It is the understanding that you have the power to determine your future, but you simply don’t know what it is.
I know it’s hard to understand. How can you not get it? I mean, you’re right. We need to know who we are, why we exist, and how exactly we will be using our lives. Self-awareness isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it can be a very good thing.
Self-awareness is a very important and valuable trait, but the problem is too many people don’t have it. Too many people don’t understand that they have the ability to influence their way into their lives. They just don’t know how to use it. This problem is actually quite simple. There is a part of us that controls our lives, and that part is very easily taken away in the blink of an eye. And it is only through awareness that you can find it.
There is a good chance you are one of the people that has been controlled by the part of you that controls your life. People that have done something bad, that have done something stupid, that have done something criminal, or that have done something that they would never do again. The only way to find this out, is to become conscious of the part of you that controls your life, and to find out how to use that part of you to positively effect your life.
There are times when you can’t just snap your fingers or go to the store and just buy something because it is the right thing to do. And there are times when you do just that and then it doesn’t make sense. And this is not to say that you shouldn’t buy things, or that you shouldn’t go to the store and just buy things.
Well, that is a bold statement because I am not saying that you shouldnt buy things, I am saying that you should be conscious of what your buying. If you buy a new computer and you dont know how to use it, then you should not buy it. If you buy a new sofa set and you dont know how to use it, then you should not buy it. And that is because you buy something that you should be conscious of.
The question is if you are conscious of the price of your products and the people who are using them. If you do not buy your own products, you should not buy them.
The question is how conscious of the price and the people using them are you? The first step to being conscious is understanding what your buying, what you are buying, how you are using it, and what you are buying, used to be called the “self-aware consumer.” That is a little more difficult now with the advent of the internet and the ease of shopping online.
The main concern is to avoid the problem that everyone thinks they are. To be consistent I say “I want to buy the same thing as you do”. Because to buy anything is to commit to it. Not buying anything is the problem. To buy anything is to commit to something. To be consistent is to buy what you want.
Because we have always been a self-aware consumer, we are now in an age of self-awareness. We can see, evaluate, and take a bit of a different path. For example, I don’t have a problem buying new cars, but I certainly have a problem buying used cars. I am concerned that I am not taking a better path to buying the car that I want to buy.
