Do You Know Yourself?
It's time to have the tough conversations with yourself
The extent to which you know yourself is hugely dependent on the extent to which you can search and question yourself.
Do you question yourself?
Remember you're not a dictator to yourself. You have a free relationship with yourself, therefore, you must encourage dialogue or self-talk from time to time.
Do you probe yourself?
Tell yourself the things that you know must change about you. It's that simple, don't settle for the version of you from yesterday. You can be a better version today and work towards an even better version tomorrow. You're only in competition with yourself.
Do you challenge your own thinking, choices, and decisions?
Mediocrity reigns when we refuse to challenge our thoughts and choices. Mediocrity has never imposed itself on anyone but wherever it exists, it does so side by side with its greatest companion; complacency.
Have you ever pulled yourself aside for scrutiny in your dealings with others?
The best lesson we can teach ourselves is that of putting ourselves in other people's shoes, to feel what they feel when they are dealing with us. Our ability to do this can go a very long in ensuring we enjoy peaceful and fulfilling relationships.
When was the last time you corrected yourself and actually took the correction?
Yes, we often forget to take our own advice. It's much easier to be objective and see where things are wrong with other people than to see it with ourselves. And when we do see it, the challenge is always being humble enough to take it and implement the change.
All these questions are ways and means by which you get to know yourself. The objective of this inward search or self-scrutiny is not to demean you or condemn your ways, but to fine-tune your approach to life and by doing so, make yourself a finer person, stronger, more powerful, more resilient and most of all, always teachable.
If you want to know yourself, you must search and have the tough conversations with yourself.
