Much more important than the expectations and opinions of others is understanding who you are. This is not about what your name is, what your job is or what your roles are in relationship to others. This is about being willing to look at yourself objectively, determine that you have value, and take a look at what your purpose is in life. This is about coming to terms with who you are—not who others think you are.
When you discover who you are, you can find freedom from the constraints of others’ opinions and expectations. You can discover wisdom that helps you make decisions on how to move forward. And you can experience less inner conflict as your actions match up more effectively with your identity.
But how can you find out exactly who you are?
Well, the simplest way is by walking down the path of self-reflection. For some people, this may feel a bit uncomfortable at first. Many people avoid self-reflection because looking in that proverbial mirror might feel a bit painful. At first, you may not like what you see. But the good news is that you have the power to make choices and changes!
Taking time for self-reflection inevitably leads to self-knowledge. And self-knowledge can change everything about the way that you choose to live your life. You don’t need to be afraid.
Asking yourself the following questions may help you to find out more about who you are. Knowing who you are leads to knowing what you want—and then achieving it. It’s all part of discovering your passion, purpose and vision in life.
Think about the answers to the questions and how they might motivate you to live each day and the sum-total of your life differently. Then move forward and begin practicing with purpose!
