”Know thyself means this, that you get acquainted with what you know, and what you can do.”
Looking at where our strengths lie and where we need assistance can greatly help us grow and enabling us to make any necessary changes in our life. Self knowledge is a powerful tool that too many people often ignore.
Take a piece of paper. On one side, write down all the things you like about yourself – your personal strengths, difficult situations you have overcome, people whose lives you have effected, personal accomplishments, and values that increase your self respect.
On the other side, make a list of your personal weaknesses that you struggle with – perhaps you are selfish sometimes, or avoid taking responsibility, or maybe you have not followed through with your commitments. Whatever these issues are, by bringing them out into the open you will immediately feel more positive about improving on them.
You need to remember that you are human, which includes being strong, weak, flawed and even broken, but ultimately you are learning, growing and evolving on your journey of self growth. Encouraging you to live more, to learn and ultimately evolve to become a better person.
‘‘To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think. The only thing I am for sure is unsure, and this means I’m growing, and not stagnant or shrinking.”
