Cool Personal Checks On Awareness

April 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 164

How aware are you and how do others perceive you? Do you let others judgments affect your self-esteem or do you filter your persona to look good in other persons perspective?

Personal Awareness

Being self-aware has its benefits. Like smiling when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Appearances matters. You don't want to go around with food stuck in your teeth when all you have to do to mitigate that is to brush your teeth before you step out. Bland speech, bad breath, body odor all can be prevented.

Other traits that are within ones control is body posture and body language that broadcasts tells to everyone as to you disposition, confidence and approachability. Talk slowly but think quickly. Analyzing ones' own and others' body language is a useful tool in knowing how to present oneself. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'

Attraction is like a business in that they want options. These are common traits in men and successful women. In business you want to hire someone who is proven in what they do, someone who comes highly recommended. The same goes for a woman looking for a man. She doesn't want to date or get to know a man intimately who no other woman desires to be with. Everyone is looking for a standout, a knockout, someone who is desirable. It's an innate, inborn sense.

When you are yourself, outgoing and comfortable in your natural skin, you'll appear more attractive. Walking confidently, genuine smiles, warm handshakes, when you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye are all perceived as cool. Changing who you are artificially by putting on airs to appear attractive to others usually falls flat. Sticking with your own character and morals, Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully and others will look up to you.

Your ability to become more familiar with your own skin and revealing yourself to others is valuable. This is both a conscious and subconscious process. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

Fitness not only improves your appearance, but increases endorphins that alter your overall mood. Pursuing a somewhat vigorous general fitness routine with adequate sleep will help get cobwebs out of the brain. You'll find you'll get more done and feel physically better.

Thinking about your life and deciding what you want to achieve is important. Don't put off setting a direction and if you haven't, it's never too late to start the process. Set your lifetime goals first and break them up into smaller time segments. Separating what is important from what's a distraction, irrelevant and not important is a method for seeing clearly. It helps to build self-confidence and motivation towards reaching those goals.

Goal Setting

Set goals that motivate you. Review you plans and make sure they fit into your lifestyle and the way you want to spend your life. Setting your sights on goals in a big deal and you need to be doing it. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. Many tell you to figure out 3 to 5 things you want to accomplish and list them as goals; achieving these would make the biggest difference in your life. For each goal, write out or make strong mental note of the factors about how these changes will benefit your life for the better.

Goal setting is like doing mental pushups. You need to hammer them into your head and into your subconscious. They become personal checks, an unconscious roadmap. Goals should be specific, attainable, and measurable and the timing should be realistic. When you lose, don't lose the lesson. Keep on track and keep your perspective.

Many suggest using personal affirmations and using goal pictures as a motivational representation. Accomplish this by going online and finding a picture that represents things you want or want to do and print them out or have them in a location that you visit daily. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Others go on to keep a "goal journal" or those with internet connections, a goal blog. They'll write out a financial statement with their financial objectives and read it to themselves each morning. Each month they'll go over their accounting for the month on an income report and track the totals and write out the next months goals.

They will even have goal rewards. When I reach this amount, I will buy this for myself. They layer their goals with more expensive perks for higher dollar value achievements.

Goal setting is done by businessmen, athletes, and achievers in all fields and endeavors. It gives short-term and long-term vision and motivation and focus to your attention. It helps you organize your time and resources to make the most out of the way you pass time here on earth.

By setting clearly defined goals you can better measure your progress so it will not seem like a pointless grind. Small targets along the way allow you to see and measure your achievements. This is especially important with big long term (10-year type) goals.

One way to keep a goal in sight is through your choice of cool personal checks that are specific to your listed goal. You'll find these cool checks online for every conceivable category and niche. They'll be an unconscious reminder and visual affirmation you make as you write your check.

Cool Checks On Awareness Goals

We're aware that as evolved beings, we need certain basics to feather our nest and make life more meaningful. There are career goals, financial, educational, family, artistic, attitudinal, physical pleasurable and spiritual goal setting. It all begins with a to-do list of things that you should do today in order to work towards you goals. This way we have performance goals instead of outcome goals, which is especially important in business type matters.

Career and Finance: For your career goals, you'll want to target the level you want to reach in your chosen discipline. If self employed, it could be a certain financial target or if related to career goals, a certain level of achievement.

Educational: How much formal or personal education do you want to accomplish? What information do you need to attain your career, financial or other goals?

Family: Do you want to get married, have children? If so, how are you preparing for parenthood and providing nourishment in the physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions for the lives of those you plan to interact with intimately?

Attitude: Is there any part of your behavior that you deem needs changing? Are there things in your mindset that you perceive as holding you back and want to change?

Physical: Are there fitness goals, weight goals you want to achieve? Are there athletic goals you have in mind? All you need to do is take steps to reach your objective.

Spiritual: Do you make time for quiet? The un-definable, un-measurable, boundless is found only in stillness. Do you have a location and time set aside for quiet time and deep meditation?
