Have you ever wondered what you are truly capable of achieving in a lifetime? Do you really know the meaning behind the person you are? The idea of becoming familiar or discovering yourself as a person can be quite a challenging task to some, simply people lack in their self confidence to step out and find their purpose in life. People become quite satisfied in their status pro quo and therefore don’t push the limits of life to truly discover themselves and the capabilities that they may possess. However, if you are willing to go that extra leap forward to truly identify yourself, you will become a much more successful person in whatever field that may be, weather it be playing professional sport, or professionally in a business office.
Stay true to yourself, don’t be that person that fails and gives up in the hardest of times, failures of the past are generally responsible for those people giving up and fearing the next time they see an opportunity to take rise to themselves. We need to let go off these fears and failures, and treat them as motivation and learning skills for the future. Its about stepping up, rather than down to the issue being faced, this is an opportunity to personally break free of all the past effects that have previously stopped you, and become true to the person you are, through self empowerment to chase your future in discovering the person you are and the person you wish to be. It’s also important to fully understand your past story and why you are where you are today. We can’t be covering up our past, rather we need to embrace our past and further look into the actions we took and understand our reactions so we can separate ourselves from the more harmful experiences and move in a direction of positivity.
Even though people like to let external factors control and shape them as people, its about accepting what life brings us, weather it be positively or negatively, and taking correct action to overcome these negatively issued fears. It should be within the person’s willing desire to break free from previous hard ache to take on a life course that will lead them into discovery, and as a result we need to take responsibility of ourselves when facing these fears.
There will always be those select few people growing up around you that will not believe in you or your goals. These are the kind of people you need to separate yourself from, these people will eventually drag you down, dampen your spirits and ultimately destroy confidence and stop any forward personal gain. You need to surround yourself with good people, people that believe in you, your aspirations and your dreams. People than you can turn to when you need help, or just someone to talk to when the going gets tough at times and seems impossible to overcome. Discovering yourself starts within your desire to step out and face life’s ups and downs on your own. I know I had some outside critics that believed I shouldn’t go to college and wasn’t ready for the journey, however, with the positive reinforcement from within me and my family, I took on this journey and it has definitely put me in the right direction in discovering the person I wish to become in the near future.
I encourage you to let go of your fears, and go out and try to discover the person you are. You’ll be surprised with what you find.
