Who are you? How can you discover yourself? To find yourself, first learn about yourself. It is an enlightening experience. You become self-sufficient and do things for yourself. It is hard to ignore what others say when you have self doubt. The process is not easy but worthy.
Here are 5 sure ways how you can discover yourself
1. What are my values
What do you believe in? What drives you? Is it ambition, is it empathy. Once you have categorised them identify the central theme that guides you. Life is easier when you acknowledge your values and make decisions that honour them.
2. What I’m I always worried about
What is it that bothers you? Worry might be a motivating and constructive feeling, but it is easy to drain you energy and instill fear. It also leads to loss of time. Write them down and pray about them.
3. What are ashamed of
What is it that you do not like about yourself? Is it how you walk, speak, dress? Document what you are ashamed of. If you can change, work on them and if you cannot do not let it bother you. Shame is a powerful destructive feeling.
4. What do you like doing for fun
When you are bored what is it that you enjoy doing? Swimming, writing, cooking. Whatever it is, build on that and just do it. Happiness predicts optimism and long lives.
5. What matters the most
What are the 3 most important things to you? Recognize them and live by that. Life is short, live your dreams and share you passion.
