Self-Awareness Is Part of Situational Awareness

Whenever we get the chance, we remind you that the name SemperVerus is Latin for Stay True and its foundation is the Bible verse 1 Timothy 4:16 (NLT) — “Keep a close watch on how you live and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right for the sake of your own salvation and the salvation of those who hear you.”

In his article, Leadership and Self-Awareness…, Dr. James Scott, Jr., says, “Sin is humanity’s great problem, but a wholesale lack of self-awareness…is a leading contributor to the problems and troubles we create for ourselves. We hurtle through life more unconscious of our own selves, and the lives of others, than sharply aware and purposely alert.”

He references the SemperVerus verse 1 Timothy 4:16 and emphasizes the phrase, “Keep a close watch on how you live.” He says, “In essence, Paul exhorts his young friend [Timothy] to make sure he is adequately self-aware,” so that he knows his own strengths and weaknesses, his giftedness, personality, and leadership style. Being self-aware is an important component of being situationally aware.

Scott suggests one way of strengthening your self-awareness is to know and develop your core values. The core values of SemperVerus are what comprise the SemperVerus Brotherhood/Sisterhood™.
