Awareness


“We see people and things not as they are, but as we are.”


The book is a short and fresh take on the concept of self-awareness, that is put into practice via real-life examples and anecdotes.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

1. Awereness is observing and understanding what is going on around you and inside you, without attaching any meaning to anything.

2. While most people say they want to be more self-aware, the reality is that they don't, as self-awareness comes with the inevitable: to see our flaws and the most uncomfortable truths about ourselves.

3. What you are aware of, you are in control of. What you aren't aware of, you have no control over.


READ IF: You would enjoy the intersection between philosophy and real-life practicalities when it comes to self-development.
