Self Discovery is about Knowing Yourself! Knowing Who You Really Are!!! By knowing who you really are, You can Be Who You Really Are, and can Live the Life that You Truly Want to Live!
“Discovering who you are today will lead you to who you become tomorrow.”
“We must not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time.” – T.S. Eliot
Self-Discovery is the beginning step for personal growth and personal development. And, Self-discovery is a lifelong quest to find your next level.
We all have our dreams and hopes for our life. We all have our purpose in life. And we all have our Core Values.
Self Discovery is about finding out your important dreams and hopes, your purpose. Once you know clearly, then it will help you to focus on achieving them. It is not only about achieving your dreams and hopes, but it is also equally important to know clearly WHY these dreams are important for you.
And also HOW do you achieve them is very important. Living in aligned with your Core Values is very important. Only when you are living according to your Core Values, you will feel sense of fulfillment and sense of inner satisfaction in your life. Otherwise, just being ‘Successful’ may give you material and outer possessions, but not inner satisfaction. You will still be feeling something is ‘Missing’ in your life. Self-discovery begins with Self-Awareness. And Self-Awareness is raised through self-reflection.
Self-awareness is about being aware of yourself – being aware of yourself, your habits, your emotions, your patterns, the way you act, you behave, you react, etc.
Self-reflection is about taking time with yourself, being Still and being Quiet, and asking yourself questions that will help you know about yourself more, and by being still and quiet, you listen to your own inner voice. Through the process of self-reflection, one gains deeper understanding of one’s own self, Dreams, purpose, character, values in life.
Being still and being Quiet, doing meditation, and taking time with oneself will allow you to refocus your mind and will help you see yourself, your inner self!
Listening to your own Inner Voice
You always have the answer within you. You just need to take time and create space to let it come out and you being able to listen to it.
‘What lies behind us and what lies before we are tiny matters in compared to what lies within us.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
