3. I compete with no one, I can only strive to be better than whom I used to be

As I walked through the path of self-discovery, life taught me never to see anybody as a competitor, I am only in competition with myself because we are all created uniquely to solve a unique problem.

4. Live by choice, not by chance

On the path to self-discovery, there is no room for excuses, it is your life and no one will discover it for you, you must painstakingly discover who you are.

It needs to be noted that, in life, we live by choice and not by chance.

To discover who you are there is a need to choose wisely, what you choose today determines your position and stands in the nearest future.

10. Choose your friends wisely

Your circle of friends is very important to who you become.

Therefore, surround yourself with people of a positive mindset, who will see the greatness in you and also encourage you to be who you are.

In conclusion, it need to be noted, only those who are courageous enough to do what others are afraid to do or running away from, one of which is self-discovery, are those who will eventually become successful and fulfill destiny.

To avoid an identity crisis, you must discover who you truly are.                    

To remain relevant in your world, you must discover yourself

To stand out among your peers, it is a must to discover who you truly are

Above all, you are created uniquely, never compare yourself to anyone because                        

the world is earnestly waiting for your great manifestations.

                                     SHINE ON!!
