To truly know yourself is the most important skill you can possess. When you know who you are, you know what you need to do instead of looking for permission from others. Once you know yourself, you will become more confident, you will understand your purpose, and you will begin making a bigger impact on the world.
You cannot and will not be able to know yourself until you take the time to be still. Many people don’t know themselves because any sort of silence scares them. It’s too uncomfortable to be alone with every flaw staring back at them. Be quiet and discover your true self.
Realize who you truly are, not what you want to be. When you know who you are, you will finally see where you and your specific gifts fit into the bigger picture.
Find what you are good at and not so good at. When your actions do nothing, but drain you, rather than produce more passion and increase your drive to do more, that’s a good sign it is time to focus elsewhere.
Find what you are passionate about. Focus more on passion, understand yourself in better ways and you’ll make a bigger impact. Passion produces effort and continuous efforts produces efforts.
Ask for feedback. Sometimes those closest to you can see something we might not be able to see in ourselves.
Use your reflections to fight your biggest fears, because when you understand who you are, your purpose will finally become more bigger than your fears. When you realize who you are, you will spend less time spinning your wheels.
Now go take action and find your true self, starting today.
