Blind spots are things you are unaware of. Identifying our blind spots and understanding them heightens our level of self-awareness.When we develop a greater self-awareness, it puts us in greater alignment with our higher selves and who we are meant to be. The net result is a speedier progression toward achieving your own level of greatness.
Blind spots aren’t necessarily negative traits or weaknesses, though they usually are.
When you are oblivious to something, there is a high likelihood that:
- You have never worked on it before, which leaves an opportunity for improvement.
- It is acting as an invisible boundary that limits your experience in your life.
When you uncover your blind spots and actively work on them, you start becoming more conscious as an individual, of your strengths and opportunity areas, and the boundaries you operate within.
If you don’t uncover these blind spots, you will never be able to work on them, simply because you aren’t aware of their existence. Just like growth is a life long journey, the process of uncovering blind spots is an ongoing opportunity. With every blind spot you identify and tackle, there is always a next blind spot to uncover. The best strategy is to ask someone who knows you well what is your most impactful blind spot, and then work on that one. As you become conscious of your blind spot, it is likely that others will surface for you.
