We all hear this infamous word, self-discovery? We may think it doesn’t apply and may not pay it the attention it truly deserves. A path that at times we dismiss in the midst of life challenges. So this leads me to a few questions:
Do you recognize this person you see in the mirror each day? Are you making the changes you want to make? If not, what is stopping you?
We see ourselves in the mirror everyday, we should at least and it’s about paying attention to what you’re becoming and if it fits with what you value. You know before I even get into that, are you really looking at yourself each day? Yes, we can stand in the mirror but what are you focusing on? Is it every not so great thing about you, is it everything you aren’t right now, or are you slightly looking at yourself, afraid of what you see? I think that right there is the first part of all of this, being able to fully see who you are and being realistic with what you recognize and what needs an overhaul.
Business Plan, More Like A Self Plan
Just like a business, start thinking of yourself as a brand and what components need assistance to make this part of self-discovery something amazing.
- What’s your self plan looking like? Similar to a business plan but what are some pieces of yourself that you need to take a good look at.
- Get your goals in check, from today, a week from now, a month or year, what do you want to see for yourself in you?
- What things do you need to get you in check, what people can help, how can you help yourself in some way?
Being able to take a hard look at different parts of who are, makes the building process a bit easier to overcome.
I’ve questioned that person in the mirror several times and at times being able to be real on where you are in life and if it matches with your values can be tough. There are different aspects of life that take us away from us, but when your values are in check, that doesn’t happen as easily.
I can remember going back and forth on making sure it’s the right time to do something, maybe I’ve just lost myself and life is really taking its toll, or maybe it’s also trying to find my happiness from others validation. All of this really made it hard to look at myself in the mirror, bc that fear of what I truly would see once I peeled off the exterior and look deep within.
Sometimes you have to get down deep, may have to shed a few tears, may have to re-do aspects of your life to see YOU again, but overall this is where self-discovery starts.
If you want to live a life of purpose, with intention, a life that is yours, with no regrets, you start it by looking deep into that person you see in the mirror each day and figuring out what you need and what values are truly important to you and finding ways to match that in aspects of your life.
Kept this short and sweet, hope this was helpful to you in some way.
