3 Podcasts That Will Help You Become More Self Aware

Hey friend, have you ever wanted to be more self-aware and didn't know where to start? That can be frustrating. You know you should ask yourself more questions. Being aware of why you do what you do isn't a half bad idea. It would benefit you to be able to articulate your deepest held values but when you try it feels like you don't really even know where to start. You don't know what questions to be ask yourself and you don't know why you feel the way you feel, you just feel it. Seems simple enough. But there is a great value in knowing ourselves well. So, if you don't know where to start, I have included three podcasts that might just get the ball rolling.

The Next Right Thing

This podcast is all about decision making and there is nothing like a decision that calls our true selves to rise to the surface ready to be looked at and examined. When we are in the process of decision making, our values, priorities, and feelings cannot help but to come to the surface. Decisions and our feelings that accompany them are great commentators on what is already deep within us. When our fear, excitement, or stubbornness arise then we may ask it questions. We can ask, "Why have you come?"

Fear may tell you, "I am here because if you make the wrong decision then you will waste a lot of time and money that you can't get back."

Excitement may tell you, "Pay attention to this thing you are doing here, it might be connected to your purpose."

Stubbornness may tell you, "You're going to mess up a good thing up. I like where we are right now and there is no reason to change that."

I believe if we sit with our questions then our inner self will answer. Plus, if you thought that we were going to do all of the work then you may be delighted to know that we won't. In this podcast Emily asks very thoughtful questions and shares intentional stories. If self-awareness is something that can be caught then this podcast would be the place to find it.

Trailer Cast

Elyse Snipes is a therapist and in her podcast Trailer Cast she takes you into the world of therapy to demystify it. Well, as you might imagine, therapists are basically professionals at self-awareness. They know there is always more to the story we are telling. In one of her most recent episodes she talks about how being upset over choosing paint for your house may be an indicator to what is going on underneath in your heart. "Do you think you can trust yourself? Do you always wonder if the grass is greener on the other side?" She asks and many more questions like that. I think if you take the time to listen to her podcast you will see yourself in some of the stories. You'll see that maybe there is a little bit more underneath the surface in your own "house paint" moments as well.

The Life Coach School

For this podcast, be prepared to think deeply. Life coaching is a practice that deeply relies upon and encourages self-awareness. Not only do you have to be aware of your emotions, but this takes it another level deeper, you must be aware of the thoughts that create those emotions in the first place. Brooke introduces us to what she calls, "The Model," which is: You have a circumstance that triggers a thought, that causes an emotion, that causes an action, that produces our results. If that sounds complicated to you then take the time to listen to her first two episodes. Brooke is a wonderful teacher and breaks down huge concepts in easy to understand ways. If you listen to her podcast long enough, you'll eventually realize your thoughts are the reason why you do everything you do and these are thoughts that we are mainly unaware of. If our thoughts are essentially controlling our lives and our results then I think it is awfully important for us to be aware of them and this podcast will definitely get you there.

I hope you find these podcasts helpful in getting you started on your self awareness journey. Do you already listen to any of these podcasts? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Thanks friends!
