Getting to know yourself can blast through any negative preconceptions you may be persistently entertaining in your thoughts or mind. Remember, your self-image is usually based on the conclusions you formed from your past experiences. For instance, you may hold a belief that you are not a good writer, or you’re not a “people person”, or that you don’t have any special skills, but is that really true? How do you know for sure?
Please don’t say, “Because I tried it once and I sucked at it.” Trying something once or only a few times should not discourage you. You only need to make up your mind to succeed.
The truth is, you can become good or even great at anything if you truly want it and are willing to never give up.
My question is: Do you really want to get “there”? Getting to know yourself helps you separate what you really want from what others expect of you.
