At times we reach a point that we do not know how we are or what we really want, such confusion can be very damaging especially when we want to hit certain success heights. Unfortunately when we don’t find our true self we don’t achieve much in life. Finding your true heart’s desires is very important for you to make vital decisions that will result to success in your own definition.
So, the real question is how can you stay true to yourself? Apparently, there is no other way to be true to yourself than to live your life for you. To help you through this realisation, there are several self reflective questions you’ll need to ask yourself first.
1. Am I really happy?
This is the first question that you need to ask yourself. Your happiness matters a lot, and being true to yourself is when you answer this question truthfully. What really makes you happy and why?
2. Do I love what I do as my routine?
Your daily routine is something that you do almost every day for a very long time. What reaction do you get when you think of your routine? If it doesn’t excite you, then it doesn’t make you happy.
3. Do I love how I look?
Happiness comes from within you and the first step is to love yourself. If not, what do you need to change to get full satisfaction of your looks?
4. Do I really need to change how I look?
Is it really necessary to change your appearance to love yourself? Is it your own mind or are you letting others make your decisions?
5. Does it matter what people think about me?
If it really matters what others think about you, then you are not being true to yourself. Judging yourself as per how you really see yourself is what should really matter, not other’s opinion.
6. Am I doing enough to get where I want in life?
Are you where you want to be in life? If not, what is derailing you from hitting success heights? What should you stop doing that is hindering your achievements? What do you really need to do to get to where you want to be in life?
7. Do I have negative habits that are hindering my success in life?
With sincerity, list all the bad habits you have that you think have an impact to your life’s misfortunes.
Being to true to oneself is the only way a person can really take control of his or her life.
