“Discovering who you are today is the first step to being who you will be tomorrow.”
The credit for my self discovering journey goes to COVID-19. It’s a bit shocking but true. I always thought of improving myself but I didn’t really work on it, every time I thought of it the procrastination along with and ‘no time’ slogan destroyed the self improver within me. With all of us locked in our homes, we couldn’t complain about lack of time. So slowly and steadily( with some days of fighting procrastination). I started reading self help books and watching videos about self discovering. Self discovering is first step for self improvement. The self help books encouraged me to evaluate myself and know who I am really, what are my strengths and weaknesses. Though it is a bit hard to evaluate ourselves.
But when we evaluate ourselves and try to understand ourselves as 3rd person, it becomes easier. We just need to dig a bit and we will be unlocking the key to meet most amazing person i.e. our true self. When we understand ourselves, we understand others in a better way too. We become more happier versions of ourselves along with being optimistic. Self discovery is an amazing yet untrodden path. It helped me to develop myself. It helped me to find greatest treasure of one’s life- power to control life. Yes!! Many of us think it’s in our control but it’s just a deception. Controlling our life is not a piece of cake.
Many a times our sub-conscious mind, external person or any other thing controls our life and we are not on the driver seat, we can’t determine where we are going. But the solution to this is simple, once we control our thoughts, we control our beliefs and then our actions and subsequently the end result. Thoughts are greatest weapon we have, we may use them against us or in building us. This is result of self discovery we can understand and evaluate our actions and take steps for self improvement after our self discovery. If one has not embarked upon this great journey, one has left the greatest path to be explored.
