  • Knowing yourself is imperative to reaching your goals and being successful. Without self-knowledge, you'll just glide through life without really 'living' it.

  • Sometimes we believe that we know how others view us character wise. . Many times, however, others may see us totally different than what we perceived. What is most important, however, is how we see ourselves. We can only see our true selves through self awareness of our physical, spiritual , sexual , emotional, and mental being. Once we have come to terms with this awareness, we can honestly say that we know ourselves and where we are headed. The good thing about knowing who we really are is that if we don't like what we see, we can always continue to make changes.
