EPISODE 274: The Power of Self-Awareness

Do you know yourself? Really? Do you know what makes you tick and what drives you… what lights you up and what dims your fire? Self-awareness doesn’t come naturally. Like all forms of intelligence, it’s cultivated over time—but very few people invest in this skill. On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll learn how both internal and external self-awareness can be meta-skills in modern life.

Listen in to learn:

  • Internal vs. external self awareness
  • Why self-acceptance can be better than self-esteem
  • Why the tendency is to avoid giving feedback when we really need it
  • Why you must be picky about whom you receive feedback from
  • The Dinner of Truth: find a “loving critic” and ask them what they most appreciate and what most drives them crazy
