Discover and uncovering the hidden self
Man's main task in life is to give birth to himself to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality. In this article, I will be centering on the caption"Personal discovery". As the year is about to end you have to discover some stuff about your self. Visualize and have the time to discover your hidden self. Make a transformation this year as we are crossing over. Suscribe and comment for more.
Now let's get to the main agenda here.......
What is personal discovery?
There is more in us than we know. If we can be made to see perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less.
Personal Discovery is the process of understanding who you are and what you are meant to be. It is the journey of self. I believe that there is an undiscovered leader in every individual. I also believe that there is more to life than you see. There is more you can do than you are doing now or have ever done. Your personality is the product of your beliefs and values. Your values and beliefs inform your behaviour ,your behaviour forms your habits , your habit determines your character and your character defines your personality.
The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you discover will be wonderful. And what you discover will be yourself.
He who knows others is Learned, he who knows himself is wise.
What do people say about you? how do you receive what people say about you? How do you use the information people give about you? It is said that the unexamined life is not worth living. There comes a time in our lives when we must open our lives up for people to tell us what they see or have realised about us. Now you need to give people you trust and will be honest with you the opportunity to give you feedback about yourself. I am not buy this asking you to solicit for feedback in friends who will not be honest with you because they would not want to hurt you. In fact you are better off without that.
In life you need people you can trust to give you honest feedback when you need it, not those who sing your praise because of their selfish gains.If those you call your friends always make you believe that you're always right that you are the best in everything watch out. It could be that they are not telling you the truth or only telling you what you want to hear. You need to surround yourself with people who can give you honest feedback. The family friends colleagues and even neighbours may know something about you that you didn't realise. If you ask them, the information received will help you to increase your level of self-awareness and once you increase your level of self-awareness ,you increase the probability of knowing your true self.
You can do this by writing of questions such as the ones below that you want to know from someone you really trust and get them to answer them honestly.
What do you like most about me?
What do you dislike most about me?
What is the most difficult thing about me to come to terms with ?
What do people say is unique about me?
What are my weaknesses?
What would you consider as my strengths?
What do you see as very unique about me?
Receiving honest responses to these questions will assist you to discover who you truly are. Once again it all depends on what you do with the feedback received. Remember these questions are not exhaustive you can add on so as it serves the purpose of receiving honest feedback.
