The most dangerous man to keep as company is not a madman, but a man who doesn’t know who he is.
Knowing who you are will help you increase your self-esteem and also give your life a meaningful direction.
Dear amiable reader, you are who you are by the reason of what you think, say, do, and proclaim with your mouth.
The need to know who you truly are is so important because as we gradually approach another year and the beginning of another decade, it will be suicidal and painful not to understand who you truly are as an individual.
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ― Aristotle.
To truly know yourself is the most important skill you can every possess. When you know who you are, you know what you need to do, instead of looking for permission from others to do what you already know you ought to do…
The above words by Aristotle are very key. Knowing yourself is knowing what to do, how to do it, and when precisely to do it. When you know yourself, you do not experience low self-esteem. You become an enviable asset to your world.
Below are five simple but important ways to discover who you truly are:
1. Observe Your Inner-self:
Self-discovery begins with self-evaluation. Do not wait for people to tell you about you. Be the first person to observe and discover the best in you.
2. Discover Your Passion:
Passion is important if you want to know who you are, your passion results from your innate ability and God has given strength.
3. Evaluate Your Friends:
The people you associate with will either speed up the discovery of you or jeopardize it. Therefore, always test those who occupy your life.
4. Stop Every Manipulation:
Manipulation is allowing others to control your life, even at the detriment of your progress in life.
5. Be Intentional About Your Progress:
Until you become intentional about your life and your desired progress, nothing about you will change.
The essence of knowing who you are is to influence your world and create a meaningful impact on your generation.
In conclusion, no one is born without an identity. We all have a source, God created us all, He owns the manual of your life. Seeks the face of God, be humble to learn, never looked down on yourself. Rather embrace the strength within and celebrate your unique individualism.
