What is Self awareness?
Self awareness is simply giving time to get along with yourself. Seeing yourself in life as if you were another person observing you. It is about focusing on the reality of your behavior and not on the story you tell yourself about yourself.
What is self reflection?
One of the reflection definitions;
Serious thought or consideration.
Self-reflection-in simple words- looking at yourself from a mirror to assess your behavior, feelings, emotions, and reaction regarding an event.
Why self reflection is important for your self awareness?
Self-awareness is important to manage and
permanently change your life. Regular practice of self-reflection can help you take the right
actions to achieve your goals in the future.
The goal of self-awareness is to feel
relaxed, happy and lives your life in calmness. It is to learn and know about
considered an essential learning tool about yourself.
How to practice self reflection?
As I said you can and should
apply self-reflection in every aspect of your life. However, I advise my
clients in life and executive coaching session to start with 10min a day then
gradually increase it when it becomes part of your inner system to reach the level
that you do reflect right after the event or situation you been though. I will
give you six simple questions you can start with;
What is the issue?
What did I felt, seen and heard?
How did I react?
What was the impact and
outcome of my reaction?
How could I have reacted differently?
What my reaction will be in a
similar future issue?
Being in control of your mind and body is an important factor to reach any goal you set for yourself, hence have is a strong self awareness is an essential skill you should build and empower. I help my clients during life coaching, executive coaching and career coaching in Dubai, KSA, Egypt to excel self reflection.
Start today to observe yourself and reflect, I recommend recording your self-reflection using writing, voice or video recording tool. That makes it simple to retrieve it in the future. You can use the Modelawer app to set a goal with your reflection outcomes in order to stay aware and reminded. Start with 10 min a day preferred to be evening time and in a relaxed quiet place to avoid any distraction and gradually start to repeat reflections through-out the day.

Once you decide to engage a coach what are the specific benefits?
Recognizing your purpose
At times of transition, it’s normal to feel a bit lost or confused, wondering what direction to head. Being unsure of what you have to contribute to the world can leave you feeling adrift in uncertainty. You see self-confidence and success in others and wish you had more of that.
Discovering one’s life purpose is both easy and hard. It’s easy because the answer lies within yourself, waiting for you to recognize it. It’s hard because weeding through the varying messages we get (and give to ourselves) confuses our search.
Through coaching, you can sort through those messages, find what’s true and what’s not, and begin to live a life of clarity and direction. And as your coach, I’ll be your partner on that journey.
Rediscovering your passion
Sometimes life can seem like you’re living on a hamster wheel, continually going through the same motions day after day: get up, go to work, cook, clean, sleep, then start over again tomorrow without seeming to arrive anywhere new. Life can seem a bit mundane, tedious, uninspired. Sometimes you can forget what excites or moves you. Maybe you’ve even lost sight of what you truly love.
Coaching can help you rediscover your passion and bring the color back to your life. It can rebuild your connection to that deep knowing within yourself and help you live your daily life from that space. It can put what you truly love at the center of everything you do. It can help you live an inspired life.
Reigniting your energy
Maybe you already know what you want for this phase in your life but find something keeps cropping up that prevents it from coming true. Maybe you know there’s much more that you’re capable of but just need the opportunities to show it. Maybe you feel burdened by the obstacles between you and your dreams
Coaching can help you kick the obstacles you face in your life out of the way. It can help you find the opportunities you need to unleash the potential that is you. And it can turn your feelings of weariness into vigor and radiance. Really.
Rekindling your hope
When uncertainty and obstacles abound, the world can seem empty and hopeless. It can appear there’s no way out of the ruts in which you find yourself. The future looks bleak. Maybe you can’t even envision a future. Know that it doesn’t have to be this way, that everything really is possible, and that I’m here to help.
Your future is in your hands. You don’t need to put up with the status quo any longer. All you need to do is take the first step in creating the life you want.
