Success Thought of the Day – 7/11/18: Self-awareness

When nobody around you seems to measure up, it's time to check your yardstick. -- Bill Lemley.

In a previous Success Thought of the Day, we touched on the fact that we can become the average of the five people we spend the most time with.  Thus, if we can’t change the people around us (e.g. help them become better), then we need to change the people around us (e.g. be around different people).  However, how do we know that we, in fact, are not the challenge, versus the others?  The question is one of self-awareness.

One simple definition of self-awareness is the curious knowledge of one’s own character, feelings, motives, and desires.  So, as you check your yardstick today, don’t just measure others, do a little self-examination as well.

Have a great day!
