I came across chapter 17 on SELF-AWARENESS from the book titled, #AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur’s Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness. It is officially my favourite chapter of the book. I have to read the chapter twice to get the depth of the understanding.
We heard positive attributes like hardworking, dedication, commitment and much more. SELF-AWARENESS does not seem to get much attention. I believe it is important to be self-aware of your own strength and weakness. The next level is the ability to use your strength to your advantage and the ability to work around your weakness. For you to do that, there is a process known as the elimination process. You need to jump and hustle to discover your strength and weakness.
Here are the 8 self-awareness quotes taken from the #AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur’s Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness.
Knowing how you come across to others can often give you an advantage as an entrepreneur!
There’s one hack, and it’s asking people straight up to tell you your strengths and weakness. You have to be prepared for them to tell you things you may not want to hear or that you disagree with.
Get yourself thick skin. I hate reading bad stuff about me, but I can handle it. I respect it, accept it, understand it, and I try to learn from it!
What works for me doesn’t necessarily work for you.
If you are self-aware enough to know that you lack confidence, you could definitely execute to get more!
At the very least, start working to surround yourself with confident, positive people.
Not everyone will understand what you`re doing, and the more you work, the more chances you have to be disappointed. Or even to be the disappointment. But don’t let those moments fool you. An instance of failure could be a huge opportunity.
