The most difficult thing in life is to know yourself.
Want to learn how to know yourself? Knowing yourself is very important. I read a great book I found this principle which intrigue me. So here are my take on it. You can know and learn a lot about life if you know yourself. It is also written in bible Know thyself. Right. It is also return in many of the ancient books.
That the most important thing that a person can do in his life is to know himself. So that he can understand what he is capable of and what not.
We as human beings are very good at doing some things and suck at others. What you can do is focus all your energy and power in doing things that we are good at so that we can become worlds best some day at it.
So here are some things that will help you become more aware of yourself.
You need to pay attention to yourself what are the things that you like and what are things that make you crazy. Learn about yourself and your personality is the best gift that you can give to yourself in this life.
Appreciate your strengths
We all have both some strong points and somethings that we are bad at. But we are always so focused on our weakness that we totally forget our strengths. So today what we are going do is focus our mind on what are you good at.
We should totally focus on our strengths and delegate everything else. To other people who are great at things that we are not so that we can create great things with combined efforts.
You need to focus all your energy on the things which you are great at. To do that you have to find your strengths and work on them.
The more you know yourself, the more patience you have for what you see in others.
Have compassion for your weaknesses
No matter how good you are at anything. You will always have some weakness you need to have compassion for your weaknesses.
Because if you fight your weaknesses you will never be able to focus your energy on what your good at. It is important that you accept your weaknesses.
You have to understand as human being we are prone to have weakness. And if you have some of them that is not a big deal everybody have them.
The better you know yourself, the better your relationship with the rest of the world.
You have accept yourself what you are now to become great. If you do not like yourself now you will not be able to like what you will become so be yourself and accept who you are.
Getting feedback is the most important thing in knowing yourself. It is because when you get feedback you see yourself with different set of eyes. You start to focus on what you never thought of that you have in you.
But it also important that when getting feedback you should include only those that are really close to you. The person how know you and understand you.
You can always seek help of a professional. You can seek profession help when you want to get feedback about some specific field. Lets say for example you want to became a better pubic speaker so you should get a feed back from a person who is already good in it. And give coaching.
These are some things that you can do to learn more about yourself. Learning about yourself is a on going process and you keep learning as you grow and develop. So have an open mind.
If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.
If you know who you are what you want from your life. Your life will become more fulfilling and happy. So good luck find yourself. If you want to learn more about being yourself and living with authenticity then I highly recommend Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken: Transform Your Life with the Power of Authenticity I recently finished reading this book you should read it to.
