How often have you been in company and have heard the phrase ‘I know you and …’ or ‘knowing you…’ used by others during the course of the conversation? Sometimes what follows the phrase is the absolute truth and sometimes it’s a version of the person. How often do we stop to check what we hear with our core or inner self to ensure what others see is a true reflection of who we are?
Do you check to ensure you are being true to yourself and what does that really mean for you right now or perhaps in the future? What if you were to discover you had drifted off track but could make a few tweaks to get back on track? Even better, what if you were to discover you were on track, living bravely while stretching yourself a little further to achieve more? Sounds great!
However for many people, being able to make better decisions, or for others, having the ability to start making decisions on where they go would be worth a journey of discovery. Frequently when facing an important choice we go to our friends, mentors and/or family for advice before taking a final decision. The advice received could be based on a version of yourself that may not accurately reflect the inner you – unless you are living bravely by being true to yourself.
Sometimes it is easier to take their advice and make a decision based on everyone else’s input but your own. At the very least you have support and others to share the outcome with. Obtaining feedback from those around is important and useful to shine a spotlight on our blind spots, enabling us to view the whole picture from many different aspects. It is though just part of a discovery and decision process rather than the whole strategy.
However, what if you were to discover a little more of your inner self and that by having a heightened self-awareness, you could take decisions with confidence as they would be based on your own personal values and beliefs systems? Living bravely takes courage and so does taking the time to look at what we want to discover – the version we present of ourselves to the world, our blind spots or perhaps discovering if the stories we have been telling ourselves still have relevance to our present day life.
Discovering the full and true version of yourself including the pieces we know, but perhaps side-lined for whatever reason, in addition to our blind spots empowers us to discover what living life to its fullest means for us individually. What we chose to do with these discoveries is our choice, so perhaps we could add to the title question,
“What would you do with the knowledge from your discovery?”
