Here’s what I really mean: When you’re an undergrad, you’re probably pretty self-aware. You know that you have your name, your major, and your major-related papers to write, you know who you are and what you like, you know what your favorite hobby is, and you probably know that you have a pretty impressive work ethic.
But when youre an undergrad, youre probably also a little bit self-aware. You know that you have your name, your major, and your major-related papers to write, you know who you are and what you like, you know what your favorite hobby is, and you probably know that you have a pretty impressive work ethic. But when youre an undergrad, youre also a little bit self-aware.
Because you don’t have any hobbies that you can think of that would make you a better grad student, it’s pretty hard to get your brain to think that you could be better. So just to take a closer look at the three levels of self-awareness that you have here, you’ll see that this level of self-awareness looks very much like a level of self-awareness in some ways.
This is the level of self-awareness that lets you know youre not going to get laid. You do have a lot of self-preservation instincts that can get you into trouble, but even then youre not really self-aware that you shouldn’t be getting into trouble.
It’s also the level of self-awareness that lets you know youre not a real person. You are a figment of some guy’s imagination. Youre not really you and you don’t really mean anything to any of those people.
The point here is that the most successful individuals in our society seem to be those who are self-aware. Their accomplishments are almost always the result of a process of self-awareness. The self-aware are so self-aware that they can see themselves as others see them. The non-self-aware have no idea how they are perceived by others. Their only idea is that they are a figment of someone else’s imagination.
I don’t think most of us realize all the trouble we get into when we decide to become self-aware. We seem to think that we are the center of our universe. We are usually at least a bit self-aware of what we are doing in this life. The other problem is that we often fail to realize that we are doing it all for selfish reasons.
Self-awareness is a great thing. It shows that you can be honest with yourself. It shows that you can recognize when you are being selfish.
The problem is that a lot of us are so busy trying to be self-aware, we don’t see how self-awareness is the opposite of selfish. Self-awareness is about making others happy. It’s about loving them and being their friend. But self-awareness is also about being the center of your universe. Our lives are full of selfish things. We are not the center of our universe. We are at the mercy of others. We are at the mercy of ourselves.
The problem is that we want to be the center of our universe. We think that by doing self-awareness, we will be the center of our world. But if we do self-awareness, we will also be doing self-awareness. How can you be at the mercy of yourself and yet still be the center of your universe? The answer is, you can’t.
