Do you ever make time only for you, for you needs, trying to understand who you truly are? Do you know that there is something magnificent about you? You can reach beyond any limits, as high as you want and thrive in life if you love and accept yourself.
It took me years and countless amount of wrong decisions until I got to the point where I somehow understood who I am and what I want. There were two important points of this process. First was to grow up and the second was to think. Reaching deep inside of your soul and your heart is work. Who you are, with all the good and the bad don’t just show up. You have to work for it; you have to test yourself.
Since I find this personal knowing a bit challenging, I want to share with you a few steps I have taken in my life to understand myself better. Here are 4 ways how to understand your deepest inner self and do nothing else but to thrive in life.
1. Reach the edge
What I mean by the edge is to reach out to your wildest dreams, maybe you have some ridiculous pet-peeves only you understand or ideas out of one’s mind. Play with your thoughts and have fun with it. Think why you think about it, why you like it or dislike it, what it represents for you. What emotions and feelings this vision gives you? Is there something you can work with in the future or maybe eliminate?
You don’t have to like all the answers or things about your personality, but this exactly is what gives you space to fully understand yourself. Don’t be scared to admit who you are and why you like some completely weird things no one knows about. You aren’t going to stand in front of the world to admit it; this is no one’s business. It is a service to yourself; it is the best knowledge you may have.
2. Eliminate self-doubt
For you to succeed and accept yourself in the entire complex, doubt can’t have a place in your life. At first, some of your personal discoveries may be scary, but the point is to know and accept them. If you can’t accept them, change them.
Self-doubt kills your spirit, your belief and your faith for making it big in life. Remember we are reaching here to your deepest self. By eliminating doubt in your life, it will become easier for you to create healthy self-respect and become more certain in what you do.
There are two crucial things you can do to stop questioning yourself and gain more confidence. First is to quit listening to losers and people who don’t support you. Walk away, is that simple. Second, listen to your inner voice. Pay attention how you talk to yourself.
3. Be OK with who you are
Go and look in the mirror. Look close to what you see. You see this beautiful, unique, amazing person who can do anything in life. I know it may sound as serious motivational pep talk I am giving you here, but self-love and self-acceptance are very important. Yes you have your weaknesses, and maybe sometimes you do weird things (I definitely do). But that’s you and all that matters at the end of the day is being OK with that.
4. Haters and losers: OUT!
It is an unfortunate truth that a few toxic people are walking this Earth, trying to spread their poison on others. Losers and haters will never disappear, but you can ignore them. Keeping relationship with people who make you feel bad or empty is never a good idea, no matter how many years you were best buddies.
You can’t thrive in life if you are always surrounded with negativity and doubt. For you to fully accept yourself and succeed, you need to have people around who accept you as well. People who don’t criticize you, people who love you for who you are. It will make a tremendous difference in your journey to self-awareness.
I understand that being 100% satisfy with yourself is hard work for some of us. To this day I have moments where doubt take over my mind, and I guess you too. The important step here is to consistently work with your thoughts and make progress towards acceptance. Once you reach this point, it will fill you up with peace, confidence, and self-love.
