Who am I?
When was the last time you asked yourself this question?
We often forget to do so and focus more on the part of (what do I want to have or do with my life?) but rarely do we ask ourselves who we really are!
And therefore, we tend to be more reactive than proactive, we change our opinions in an instant for the sole purpose of pleasing others, our moods and emotions undergo constant changes, we become slaves to coincidence, waiting for someone to compliment us to feel appreciated but losing this high to another situation of criticism or ignorance.
Knowing who we truly are brings clarity and ease to our relationships, interactions, career, even to moments of meditation when we’re simply hanging out with our inner selves.
To know ourselves better we need to be able to identify: our values, our personal traits, and our communication with those around us.
So now, ask yourself these three questions:
–What are the main values I want to live by and want my life to be a representation of? (Is it love, freedom, simplicity, truth, beauty, fitness?)
–What are my main personal traits? How do I want to be remembered? (Is it engaged, loving, generous, focused, calm?)
–How do I want my relationships to be? And how do I want to deal with those around me? (Is it inspiring, honest, supportive?)
By having these three areas clearly defined by your consciousness, you will start to subconsciously act in a way that matches your self- image.
Your actions and interactions with people will feel smoother, easier, more pleasant because you are being a life example of everything you stand for.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
