This past week, my wife and I were out of town and we had a lot of time to talk.We had some really deep conversations about life, family, ministry, dreams, and discouragement.
We talked about the danger of self deception and how easy it is to fall into the trap of looking out the window instead of the mirror.We must be self aware.
Have you noticed that people who have little self awareness are usually the most dysfunctional?
You cannot be blind to your true self. Have you been blind so long that you have made it impossible to see yourself as you really are?
Not only do you need to know your own strengths and weaknesses, you must look in the mirror and tell yourself the truth.
Are you arrogant?
Do people think you are full of yourself?
Do you treat people with respect and dignity?
You must answer these questions and others that are similar honestly.
Awareness is always the first step to progress, so, take a deep look within. Take inventory.
Put the spotlight on your own life. We must become self aware.
Do you know yourself? Are you a really insecure person? What do others perceive about you?
Are you closed off to the advice of others and you "just can’t see it" or are you truly self aware?
