It is a self-referential word isn't it? "Meta". The cognizance of one's cognizance is the foundation of Humility.
"The first stage of Humility is to force yourself." - Sh. Hamza Yusuf
Focus on the self & be mindful of others as far as it does no harm.
Mollify yourself, reproach your thoughts, scrutinize your failures, remember them, then forgive yourself & forge on.
Change afterall is an act not a concept.
