Your true self is the part of you that is constant. It transcends your body, thoughts, emotions, and experiences. It is the essence of you.
How would you describe yourself? You might say that you are Tina, wife of George, a software programmer, and have Scottish ancestry.
However, if you had been named Sarah, married a guy named Colin, worked as a nurse practitioner, and had Irish ancestors, you would still be the same person you are now. Your life and experiences might be different, but you would still be essentially the same person.
There is something about you that is constant, even though it is hard to describe exactly what that is.
Who are you?
One thing is for sure: when you are living a life that aligns with your true self, you are going to be happy. If you are not living a life that resonates with your true self, you will feel like something is lacking. It does not matter how much success, fortune, and fame you achieve if your true self is not honored.
Here are some ideas to discover your true self and reveal your path in life:
1. What is your level of introversion / extroversion?
Do you feel more energized and comfortable when alone or with others? When are you at your best?
- If you are naturally introverted, a job that requires interacting with people all day long is going to create a lot of stress and anxiety for you.
- Spending time alone in a cubicle working on a computer might drive you crazy if you are an extrovert.
2. What did you like as a child that you still like today?
It might be baseball, Scooby-Doo cartoons, pizza, and afternoon naps. Go a wee bit deeper than that. You might find that you have always craved adventure, creativity, and helping others. Think about the characteristics and qualities in your life that have been consistent.
3. If you could accomplish anything, what do you think would be your greatest accomplishment?
Is it earning a billion dollars or winning a Nobel Peace Prize? Maybe it is writing a best-selling book or adopting a disadvantaged child. What do you think is the greatest accomplishment a person can have?
4. What do you consider to be the most important lessons you could teach a child?
What do you wish you had known when you were 10-20 years of age? What could you have known that would have made your life more meaningful?
5. What would you do with great wealth?
After you bought a mansion and a fancy car, what would you do with your life? What would you do with your free time and extensive financial resources?
6. Who are your heroes?
Albert Einstein? John D. Rockefeller? Mother Teresa? Whom do you look up to? Why? Whose life would you most like to emulate? Whom would you be most proud to be like?
7. Think about who you have been.
Sometimes we get too caught up in who we want to be and ignore who we are. You might dream of being a Rock-star, but cannot carry a tune, cannot play an instrument, and suffer from panic attacks when faced with an audience. We all must accept our limitations.
- It is important to make the most of your life but be realistic about who you are.
- What are your natural strengths and weaknesses? Likes and dislikes?
You cannot create your true self. You can only discover, acknowledge, and accept it.
Whatever your true self might be, you can be sure that it is auspicious. It is your job to reveal it to yourself and then honor and share it. Run with your interests and strengths. Avoid worrying about your dislikes and weaknesses. Honor yourself and enjoy your beautiful life!!
