As I’ve mentioned before, self-awareness has a lot to do with not putting your butt in front of a chair all the time. So when I do my leg press, I want to make sure that it’s not causing me to lift my butt into the chair and onto my back.
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve tried to get people to start lifting their legs when they’re doing squats, and I’ve been met with gasps of dismayed disbelief. And yes, I know that this is not a new idea, but I think it’s important to mention that it’s an important difference between someone who’s self-aware and someone who isn’t.
I believe that being aware is more difficult than not being aware. In fact, I think that the difference between awareness and self-awareness is one of the hardest differences of all. As I mentioned above, I think its more difficult to be aware of your own habits and routines. You can still do everything you do without having to think about it on a regular basis. I think the key here is that you can still do these things without noticing they’re happening.
When we say we have self-awareness, we are essentially referring to two different things. One is being able to remember to tell yourself things that actually happen, and the other is being able to remember to tell yourself things that you have no idea actually happened. Having a memory of something you’ve never done is the essence of being self-aware. So when we say we have self-awareness, we’re really referring to one of these two different things.
You’re referring to two things, but the second is the most obvious. By self-awareness we mean being able to remember to tell yourself things that actually happen. And the second part, that is, being able to remember to tell yourself things that you have no idea actually happened.
We need to be mindful of the fact that we don’t always remember things that we’ve never done. The human mind is very good at storing all sorts of information about events that have never happened. We know things about someone that they never told us, and we still use that information in a variety of ways. Many people, for instance, are not aware that their name is the same as the person they remember as their grandmother.
I know we’ve all been there, and it sucks. To be honest, I’ve never been that person. I’m not a fan of these “get out of jail free” cards, and I don’t like to get into arguments about people who have been convicted of crimes that they didn’t commit.
The point is, the way we use information is different depending on the situation, and we use it in different ways. I know weve all been there, and it sucks. It doesnt mean that we necessarily have to be like that person, but it also doesnt mean that we should ignore the information we have learned. It is our responsibility to know about other people, and to be aware of our own prejudices and biases.
We have all been there, and to make matters worse, we have been there many times before. It is easy to forget who we are and what we know, but it is much harder to forget the ways that we have been conditioned to think and act. When we are in a situation where we are in the wrong, the only way to know that is by being in the right place at the right time.
So if you have a glute-focused leg press, and you’ve been there before, it’s really easy to get stuck in bad habits. You might start thinking about every move you made as you lift your leg, and you might feel that you never should have done that move if you were a non-glute-focused person.
