3 States of Being… Yourself

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]F[/su_dropcap]OR A WHILE NOW, articles about self-awareness keep coming across my screen: everyone needs to be self-aware in order to improve their life. And, this is true. The better you know who you are the easier it is to adapt to the world. However, most of the techniques proffered require time and discipline; something most people just don’t allow themselves. My take on the subject is – I think – more practical and provides faster results.

Without going into the whys and wherefores, the human being exists in 3 states:

  1. Physical Being; this is your physical and physiological self. This part of yourself is the most basic animal part of who you are. It eats, drinks, pees and poos, reproduces, uses the five sense, and so on.
  2. Intellectual Being; this is the thinking and reasoning self. This part of yourself is responsible for abstraction, creativity, calculation, reasoning and such.
  3. Emotional Being; everything you feel deep down inside you, in your heart.I have met so many people who let their emotions dominate their lives; they are raw.

Likewise, I have met – and, am considered to be – people whose bodies exist just carry around their heads (thanks Rory Sutherland) because they deal with the world from an entirely intellectual point of view. And lastly, I even know of people who are go to work with fear in their gut (that’s just nuts, if you ask me). I’m sure you can all see in your mind’s eye people just like these; people dominated by just one state of being. When you live your life out of balance it is often the result of finding refuge in that state of being. It protects you from the world. However, it also keeps you from knowing your true self.

Any self-aware person will be aligned with all 3 states of being. In other words, all 3 yous have to been given equal weight. Try it, you’ll like it! Live your life paying attention to all 3 states of being to find your true self.

From this work, Alessandro identified an across the board pain point in leaders’ decision-making: a tendency to focus too much on techniques and not enough on what gave the business its raison d’être. As a result of this experience and supported by independent studies he developed the ROKC™ Method which is now used by business leaders in high growth companies operating internationally.
