Watch your mental content. You will likely find, as most do that the mind is very turbulent and is messier than any child's room. This observation of the mind is called conscious "mind drift," and is a wonderful way to know what is going on inside you. By watching your mind drift for a few minutes each week you can know what you dominantly feel about life and yourself. You can be clearly aware of your fears as well as your hopes.
You will notice your mind is particularly turbulent unless you are aware of your character flaws. Whenever you try to concentrate your mind drift gets worse unless you face and deal with your flaws faithfully.
Consider, too, that since you live in your mind drift, all the activities of your life are conducted in spite of or because of the turbulent flow of images and feelings that pour through your mind.
Watching your mind in your normal waking consciousness you will likely find that numerous components make up the present content of your mind. For example:
. . . . . . . . . . My son . . . . . . . . . . . . The rose . . . . . . .
