Summary

Equal parts scientific, philosophical, and practical. Become your best self by first defining it.

The Art of Self-Awareness takes you on a journey - not to an exotic destination, but inwards. It’s perilous, scary, and uncomfortable, but the end rewards will be fantastic. Self-awareness is not simply knowing your name; it’s knowing what makes you happy, what makes you sad, and the underlying beliefs and values that create those emotions.

Most people look externally for answers to their problems, but that’s like putting a band-aid on top of a pothole. Everything that makes your life good or bad comes from within, and it’s time to finally learn what lies beneath. The toughest skill of all: metacognition, which is thinking about your thinking. The keys to avoiding self-delusion and self-sabotage. 

Patrick King is an internationally best-selling author and social skills coach. His writing draws of a variety of sources, from scientific research, academic experience, coaching, and real-life experience. Self-awareness is social awareness. Know thyself, and your relationships will benefit tenfold. Self-awareness is not just a journey about yourself - it involves the people around you. Understanding how your own emotions, values, and beliefs work will finally allow you to truly empathize with your friends, family, and significant other.

To get to Point B, you must know what Point A is. Listen to this book to find your starting point, your end goal, and what must happen in between!
