Let me tell you why self-knowledge or knowing yourself is that important for you. You may also call it self-awareness.
Self-awareness is important because it is often touted as one necessary factor in an individual’s attempt to maximize their potential.
So, how does one get to know oneself?
Well, leaving the technical jargon aside, I’ll try to put it as simply as possible.
Discover your “self”
You can get to knowing yourself by paying very close attention to your behaviour, feelings and reactions to situations. They either make you appear similar to a lot of people around you or make you look very different from them.
Another way of knowing yourself is to identify the things that you do effortlessly and with great passion. These are the things that make others admire you.

You should at the same time find out the things that you struggle to do. These weak points usually bring you nothing but failure and discomfort.
One amazing discovery that you will make upon knowing yourself is this: not only you but each individual you see is an imperfect but unique package.

Self-awareness is important because it will give you certain advantages. You will need these advantages of self-awareness to be able to keep moving forward.
