Socrates once said, “To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom”. So, how do you know yourself and why is it important? If you do not know who you are, you’ll have no idea where you want to go.
Knowing yourself is like a compass that will direct your path in life. If you do not have a full understanding of who you are then how are others supposed to get to know you. Remember that your happiness starts with you.
In today’s world, people are too caught up evaluating everybody else that they forget to peep into their own selves. We listen to what society wants us to do and forget who we really are.
Benefits of knowing yourself.
— You will be happier.
— Less inner conflict because your actions come from your true feelings and beliefs.
— Knowing thyself leads to better decision-making.
— You can control yourself in indulging in bad habits.
— You will be able to resist social pressure.
— You are better at understanding and empathizing with others.
— Keeps you more alive.
Your goals in life have everything to do with who you are and what you want to be. The thing that brings meaning to your life. The activities that you really enjoy doing.
Let me share this song lyric from Jessie J’s song
Don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising,
Just be true to who you are
The message of the song is to always be true to who you are. Believe in yourself and get what you want out of life.
Know your self. Plan your life. Get your LP Planner. Bring intentionality back to your life.
