Have you ever thought about who you are? What you stand for?
Today’s post is all about finding your true self and not what the society dictates.
To know your inner self is to know your purpose, your values, your vision, your goals, your motivations, and your beliefs. Not what you have been told by others, but what you have discovered for yourself. Knowing your inner self requires a high level of introspection and self-awareness.
Don’t ever be discouraged, it is never too late to discover what you stand for. It took me so many years as well.
1 Think about the moments you are most proud of in your life. Finding meaning in your life is not easy, nor should it be, but you can get wonderful clues from your own past. Think about the things that brought your great pride in yourself, as these are often the moments where you found the most meaning and purpose while working, traveling, or learning.
2. iDENTIFY YOUR VALUES– For example, if you felt proud at your high school graduation, then you might value education. If you felt proud when you received a promotion at work, then you might value professional achievement. If you felt proud when you planned a surprise party for your mother, then you might value family and doing nice things for other people.
3 Determine the things you want in life. Finding your inner self is as much about looking forward as looking back. Whether it is a job, a house in your favorite town, a loving partner, or lazy Sundays with a book, your desires reveal a lot about you. Simply jot down the things you want in life. Don’t be shy, and don’t filter this list of things in any way.
4. Dig beyond the simplistic labels given to you by others. At any one time, you may be considered a daughter, a girlfriend, an employee, and a tennis player. These labels are important to help define your roles and responsibilities in the world, but they are not you.They are just labels, and you are far more complex and nuanced than a few words. Instead, look beyond these labels at the concepts behind them.
5 Meditate or spend 10 mins each day in quiet reflection. You’re not going to find your inner self if you don’t go looking for it.
Finally; Always have self confidence in yourself; without this and your beliefs, you will never believe in you and reach your full potential.
Thank you for stopping by, see you next time.
