THE NEED TO REDISCOVER YOURSELF
You must have heard motivational speakers say stuff like, “you haven’t been successful because you haven’t understood who you are” or “you haven’t started living your own life and that’s why your life is stalled”, or “you have to understand yourself to move ahead”. Most times, we just ignore talks like that and continue with what we do, most times we think they are just talking to get paid, or just speaking to impress, or just blabbering, but then, at a higher level of thinking, we really need those speeches because there is need to rediscover yourself.
So many of us have been running multiple jobs, trying to make people happy, so that maybe, they’ll link you up with something that might change your story and stuff like that. We’re all trying to find a way through to the light which we believe is waiting at the end of the tunnel.
But then, now than ever, everyone needs to relax and think, “WHO AM I?”
Now, WHO ARE YOU?
YOU ARE YOU. YES YOU ARE YOU.
A lot of people make mistakes in letting people define themselves for them believing that their lives will change. But then, they don’t, because you are you and you can never be someone else. It’s just a matter of time and the fantasies you have put up in your mind will fade away and you go back to being the you that you were before. Misconceptions don’t last.
WHY DO YOU NEED TO REDISCOVER YOURSELF?
You are you and you can never be someone else. The earlier you understand this, the better for you. It is good to emulate people who you see as though they are higher placed than you, but then you have to find those of them who are like you. Birds of a feather, they say flock together.
Rediscovering yourself helps you make right choices. It affects the kinds of friends you keep, those you go out with, places you go to and virtually every aspect of your life. If you want to be like others, you might end up failing and you will have yourself to blame for it.
There is need to rediscover yourself so you can find your path. Albert Einstein once said “if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, then it will live its entire life thinking that it’s foolish”
Your talents will pave way for you. Everybody cannot do the same thing. You use what you have to get what you want. You can only give what you have. Understand your capabilities and you will see life moving smoothly.
HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT REDISCOVERING YOURSELF?
Put GOD first. “All we like sheep have gone astray, everyone to his own way” – Is. 53.6. God is supreme and has a plan for all of us. We just have to calm down and listen to His voice.
Take a deep reflection on the life you have lived. Has it been really you living or you have just been playing along someone’s script? Check out things you’ve done, which ones have been successful, which ones have failed. Make a good analysis, and then you can claim a bit of mastery over you.
Don’t over work yourself. Stop trying to do everything you see. You will just ruin yourself. How do you think you will get to enjoy the taste of a new cloth if you want don’t take off the ones you are wearing?. The bitter truth Is, you are just one man among millions, don’t come and kill yourself over nothing.
Take life one step at a time. Don’t rush things too much.
After all said and done, don’t expect life to be a bed of roses for you. Life is full of complications. There are a lot of goods in bads and a lot of bads in goods. Relax and you will enjoy life. Life is meant to be enjoyed not endured.
HAVE A NICE LIFE DEAR and remember, DON’T LOSE YOUR SOUL☺ ☺
