Self discovery is the process of acquiring insight into one’s own character. It’s unveiling the good and the bad, recognizing the strengths and the weaknesses, understanding one’s gifts and talents.
This self discovery journey is an inevitable one that everyone embarks on at one point or the other in life. However, it’s important for one to understand and always remember this:
- It’s a never ending process: Self discovery isn’t something you can just get over with and stop, it isn’t a destination you arrive at and end. It’s a continuous journey almost never ending with new discoveries each and every time.
- It’s a step by step process: As much as we’d like to sometimes, it’s impossible to know all about ourselves at once. No matter how frustrating it might get, it does take time to truly know who we are, to discover each unique gift and talent deposited in us but I believe each minute would be worth it at the end.
- It’s a conscious process: Imagine buying a new equipment you’ve never used before or heard about, then taking it home and without reading the manual or using any guidance at all, you expect to know all about it and how to use it. It definitely wouldn’t work that way and it’s the same with us, on the path of self discovery, one has to be very much conscious and intentional about it. Real efforts have to be made in order to discover who you are and find your real self.
