#2 – Reframing Your Narrative: Turning Past Wounds into Strengths and Gratitude
In this deeply introspective episode of “The Power Life Coach,” host Sabine Schoepke explores the integral role of internal self-awareness in achieving happiness and success. Sabine differentiates between internal and external self-awareness, emphasizing the importance of the former in self-understanding.
Sabine proposes a shift from the traditional introspective method of asking “why” questions to asking “what” questions. This, she explains, reduces stress while promoting a more effective introspective experience. Sabine further provides useful tips on how to practice self-awareness and encourages listeners to embrace silence, recognize, and accept their imperfections.
Sabine believes that self-awareness is a conscious, intentional process and requires time. This episode offers listeners a journey to understand their own thoughts, feelings, behaviors, strengths, weaknesses, motivations, and aspirations. Emphasizing the need for a non-judgmental and curious approach, Sabine also suggests that mindfulness, feedback seeking, and journaling can all be helpful tools in developing self-awareness.
The episode is filled with several thought-provoking questions, including ones related to unique strengths, core values, emotional management, personal desires, and life goals. Sabine encourages listeners to note these down and gradually answer them while paying close attention to their breath and body sensations.
In a practical exercise, Sabine suggests that listeners ask their family, friends, and colleagues for feedback about their strengths and extraordinary qualities. This provides an external perspective and often reveals surprising insights about how others perceive us.
Whether you’re on a self-discovery journey or looking for ways to achieve happiness and success, this episode offers you a wealth of insight and practical advice on developing self-awareness. Tune in and discover more about yourself, your desires, and your unique potential.
