Knowing Yourself is the Beginning of all wisdom

The greatest and most important adventure of our lives is discovering who we really are.

Yet, so many of us walk around either not really knowing or listening to an awful inner critic that gives us all the wrong ideas about ourselves.

We mistakenly think of self-understanding as self-indulgence, and we carry on without asking the most important question we’ll ever ask: Who am I really? As Mary Oliver put it, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Finding yourself may sound like an inherently self-centered goal, but it is actually an unselfish process that is at the root of everything we do in life.

It’s a matter of recognizing our personal power, yet being open and vulnerable to our experiences.

It isn’t something to fear or avoid, berating ourselves along the way, but rather something to seek out with the curiosity and compassion we would have toward a fascinating new friend.

The following questions may help you better to assess yourself.

#1. What is something you believe to be true that nobody else agrees with you on?

#2. What are the top 7 emotional states that you are supposed to be in as much as possible?

#3. What are the top 3 things that you will do to increase your emotional well-being?

#4. What are the things that you have started measuring regularly in your business and life?

#5. Do a brain dump of everything that is there in your mind in a notebook. This is a mega to-do list of everything to clear your mind.

Self discovery is NOT an a one-day or a one-week affair.

In fact, it can take a lifetime to discover who you truly are.

In conclusion, the more you know yourself, the more empowered you are going to be. A clear self understanding results in renewed confidence, centeredness and strength. You Live Purposefully and You Are Truly Happy!

Love and abundance always,
