HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOURSELF?
Self-knowledge is desirable. However, like perfection, it is tough to achieve. It is a ‘work-in-process’. Hence we need to Rediscover, Realign and Reconnect with our inner self to raise our self-awareness.
Our biases due to our experience and choices that have shaped our behaviour and attitude are one of the most significant barriers in the way to enhanced self-awareness. We live a life of pure fulfilment. We are in a race with everyone. And that includes ourselves.
We are happy living a life of self-rationalised. We believe in internal arguments that have never been challenged. We sleepwalk an experience called life, playing allotted roles with a variety of masks. As a result, most of our thought out reaction and responses are merely involuntary reflexes and habits.
INSTEAD OF BEING SELF-AWARE, MOST OF ARE TRAPPED IN SELF-FIXATION.
We live by values, moral and ethics that have rarely been tested. They are contextual and conditional. And we have created flexibility in our approach to suits our needs. We are a result of our convenience.
We have sketched an image of ourselves we believe in. We allow default tagging of our professional and personal life. And we slog to justify this acquired image. In the process, we have continued to generalise, distort and stereotype within our ecosystem to escape from responsibility and accountability to self.
The threat of our mask slipping is real. We are no way prepared for that eventuality. What if we find someone, we will hate to recognise or love. It is a possibility and a threat. Or we can continue to deceive ourselves and further strengthen the fake surrounding that is our creation.
REDISCOVER WILL LEAD TO
- More probability of happiness.
- Polarise us to know our desires/dreams and help us make them a reality.
- Reduce inner conflict.
- Realign our internal spaces, feelings and values.
- Improving our decision-making.
- Lead to better experiences from better choices.
- Establish a framework guiding our lives.
- Enhanced self-control. It is a natural by-product of Re-discover.
- Get better equipped to handle social pressures and demands by reconnecting with self.
When we know our coordinates, demands and constraints, and we are aware of our dreams, aspirations, resources, capabilities and ecosystem, then we are more relaxed, alive and full in life. Rediscover is a small part of Brand-i.
REDISCOVER YOURSELF. THE ALTERNATE ROUTE.
Self-awareness is not easy. It is not about getting into an ashram, rescinding responsibilities in the quest of knowing self. It is a guided self- examination, where one reflects to rediscover what was always within grasp. Maybe it is buried under a few layers of societal, personal and professional dust.
Introspection the deep meditative practice is one of the ways of looking inwards. It is not easy. However, Re-discover follows inclusive discussion, events and fun exercises done at a relaxed pace.
