Do you know yourself?

Or tell us about yourself? How is it that this simple question in an interview can cause an otherwise articulate individual to falter and stumble their way through a response?

How is that so many people are stuck by this straightforward request?

Surely, as we spend our entire lives with ourselves, we must learn something about our strengths, weaknesses, interests and preferences along the way. Do we really not know ourselves?

Maybe you’re one of those people who escaped from school or work for a year to go “find yourself.” So, what did you find?

As life-enriching as these adventures can be, you don’t have to go granola, live in the woods or climb a mountain to find yourself. Besides, you may not have the means or interest to do such things.

Self-awareness comes from within.

So how do you access it? What are some things you do to get at that self-awareness? What do you ask yourself? Surely at least some of you have gone through this exercise. What worked for you?

Whether your goals are personal or professional, knowing who you are and what you want is the place to start. There are a number of tools and resources available to help you get to know yourself. Take the time to get to know yourself and practice delivering the message clearly, confidently and succinctly. When the question comes up again, as it most certainly will during your job search, you won’t fumble for an answer.

Do you know yourself?

About Dr. Surya

Using Quantum Physics and business research, Dr. Surya explores the correlation between the science of consciousness and patterns in the business world, to suggest innovative ways of using this wisdom to lead and succeed in a business environment that is constantly evolving at a rapid pace.

Self-awareness is the awareness of the self as separate from the thoughts that are occurring at any point in time. Without self-awareness the self perceives and believes the thoughts that are occurring to be who the self is. Self-awareness gives one the option or choice to choose thoughts being thought rather than simply thinking the thoughts that are stimulated from the accumulative events leading up to the circumstances of the moment.

Along with his work as an Author, Writer, Blogger and popular Internet Radio Talk Show Host, Dr. Surya is in-demand as a public speaker. Clients include small to large corporations and individuals.
