The "Grind" ( #grind) refers to the daily struggle to get ahead. Why do we use this term? Is there a better term to use?
Self-Awareness is having a clear perception of your personality, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. Self-Awareness allows you to understand other people; how they perceive you,; your attitude and your responses to them in the moment.
When we are self-aware, we are tuned in; in contrast, when we lack self-awareness, we are tuned-out. Being self-aware means that: I am are of my past ( where I came from) , my present ( where I am now), and my destination ( where I am going/ heading); I am aware of both my strengths and weaknesses; I am aware of who I am; what I believe, what I think and what/how I feel; I am aware of my potentials or the opportunities within me and without me; I am aware of my relationship with others; my environment and the interaction of the three.
