The Benefits of Knowing Oneself

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Arizona Resource Realty BR518926000

Self-knowledge is strongly related to success at work and life. Several studies have concluded that the best predictor of high performance appraisal is seeing yourself as others see you, conversely overrating ones achievement is negatively correlated with high performance appraisal.

Knowing who you are is the best way to discover your true calling. It is also essential to choosing your ideal business or work. Your career can get turbo charged, if you really knew what you are good, average and bad at, what are the areas where you are yet to be tested and what are the things or actions that you overdo.

Instead be all of who you are by knowing who you are and you’ll never go back to mimicking others. Get inspired by these powerful benefits to being the individual you we always meant to be.

1. Honor of giving space to who you are – gives access to so far hidden wisdom
Gain access through asking your most challenging discovery questions. Residing within this wisdom are jewels in the form of thought connections, fresh insights and rich realizations.

2. Be open to and solicit constructive criticism
Your colleagues may be reluctant to give you feedback, especially when it is negative or corrective in nature. Seeking negative and distasteful feedback increases both the accuracy of your understanding and people. Evaluation of your overall effectiveness – people tend to increase their estimation of you. If you seek out and accept more feedback.

3. You will be more productive
Authenticity allows you to tap your purest vein of inspiration so you do not have to use will power, discipline and self-control to get things done. Inspiration is often the only effective antidote to resistance.

4. Listen privately
A private discussion and feedback sessions will unearth more data than the one given in public. Do not be blindfolded by your public feedback, for most individuals it is an excessively positive feedback. When the feedback giver knows that the results will be public, scores go up and the accuracy comes down.

5. Avoid being defensive
Defensive people get less feedback, because people suspect that you cannot take it in the right spirit. One of the signs of being defensive is to blame someone for your behavior or when you justify your behavior as a trigger reaction to an event or action. To break this cycle, you need to be an active listener and suspend judgment, whilst it may sound unfair, the key is to initially accept all feedback as accurate even though when you know it isn’t.

Blind spots can land your career into trouble, because you do not know or you may be unwilling to admit that you are not good at it. You will venture into areas that you should be making you cautious and humble instead of being confident and jetting into it, disaster is on the heels in these cases. An important life and career goal in life is to minimize blind spots.
