Awareness, Choice and Leadership

On today's episode, we are examining the big picture, specifically focusing on awareness and choice, and how both are crucial for leadership. 

We inherit our physical bodies and patterns from our families and culture at large, as well as from our direct experiences. Until we become aware of our patterns, they simply appear familiar and normal to us. It is only when we develop awareness and begin to question them that we can initiate change. Until we question them, our lives remain a reflection of our past experiences.

Becoming fully aware and understanding the impact we have on others, including ourselves, enables us to exercise choice. How do I want to be in this situation? What do I need to change about what I'm doing in this situation. With choice comes responsibility, and this is essential for effective leadership. 

Awareness practices can help us get closer to what is truly valuable to usβ€”what we believe is good in this world. It's so easy to slip back into old habits, so we need to have an awareness practice. 

In this episode, I offer a simple awareness practice. They can help you understand how you are doing and give you a choice to shift your physical experience and thus, your mental and emotional experience. There is actually a skill to awareness. We can get better at catching our habits and changing our behavior to meet the situation in front of us and it's so important that we practice awareness and we practice bring it in to our daily lives.
