Here’s a quote to start this post: “Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening.”

Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it’s painful… now I want you to do something and I want you to be totally honest with yourself. Until you know where you’re at, you cannot establish where you want to go. Every day is a new starting point, every week is a new starting point, every month is a new starting point it doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, today is the starting point for what happens tomorrow.

So I want you to get a tape recorder or use the recorder on your cell phone and  I want you to record yourself in 3 scenarios. In the first scenario I want you to imagine that you’re talking to somebody that you have an interest in, not somebody that you already have a relationship with or a relative, but somebody that you’re emotionally attracted to, somebody you would want to be in a relationship with etc. I just want you to have an imaginary conversation with that person, and I want you to record it for 3 minutes… just go with the flow there is no right or wrong things to say this is just an exercise.

I know it sounds weird but this is a great little technique I learned from one of my mentors and wanted to share it with you guys because this information could be very powerful to the right person.

Next scenario, I want you to do it as with you’re speaking to a multi-millionaire… how would you speak to somebody who’s worth $50 million dollars. Now I want you to record that 3 minute conversation with this wealthy entrepreneur. You set the stage, it could be at a restaurant, or after they speak at one of their seminars, whatever you want!

Third scenario, I want you to record your dialogue with somebody who offended you. Just record it, 3 minutes each. Same as the first two scenarios. Just let it flow and let it go, this isn’t you actually talking to that person and they will never hear it… most likely YOU will be the only person to ever hear these recordings so don’t worry about being perfect or sounding like a pro.

I would do this self observation exercise every other week because I know we all don’t have the time to do something like this everyday or once a week even. But as you do it more and more, go back and listen to your first few recordings and see how you mature and sound differently as time goes on.

The way you view yourself is more important then how others view YOU… one day I tried to pay my bills with other peoples opinions, and guess what… didn’t work. So don’t let peoples opinions of you bring you down, it is simply showing their true colors and that they have some type of insecurity they are trying to hide from you.

Don’t be afraid to look at yourself in the mirror from time to time… YOU are beautiful remember that! If you’re not happy with the way you look go get a haircut, start to exercise more or eat healthy. I have seen people totally transform themselves just by making a simple decision and taking daily consistent action.

Don’t just be YOU… be the BEST version of you at all times!

I hope you have enjoyed this post about self observation and how they way you look at yourself or even talk to yourself in your head can either make or break whatever you are trying to achieve!
