“We will either heal as a team or we will die as individuals”

The video inspires us to ask the question whether we can win alone. It seems to be about time to realize the importance and strength of community. This is a perfect moment in time to give up our differences and focus on what makes us similar. In that we can embrace each other and find strength and courage to move beyond our limitations. 

7 Pillars of Insight

“For millennia the discipline of self-knowledge was confined to philosophy and religion. Roman philosopher Plotinus believed that happiness was achieved by knowing our true self. And perhaps most famously, the seven sages of ancient Greece inscribed the phrase “know thyself” at the entry of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, a mantra that Plato later reinforced in the teachings of Socrates. And though most people associate self-awareness with Buddhism, nearly every religious tradition recognizes its importance.”

7 Pillars of Insight

Confucius advised that to govern others, one must first govern oneself. The Hindu Upanishads said that “enquiry into the truth of the Self is knowledge.” In the Jewish faith, self-knowledge has been called “the prerequisite for any self-improvement.” Avicenna, a tenth-century Muslim philosopher, wrote that “self-awareness is essential to the soul and [our] awareness of ourselves is our very existence.

We’d all like to believe we’re self-aware, but in reality, the facts point to a more sobering truth. Organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich has spent the last 4 years researching what it truly means to be self-aware, and in the process, has made a surprising discovery about human perception. In this illuminating talk, Eurich dissects common misbeliefs about introspective thinking and provides a simple way we can get to know ourselves just a little bit better.
