We live in a world where people always want to put our best foot forward, to show the world how good they are — this is why it takes some people nearly an hour to post the perfect selfie! In an attempt to be what what you think the world wants you to be, you end up suffocating the person you were created to be.
Self-awareness goes two ways, some people aren’t aware of all the the wonderful qualities they possess because they constantly beat up on themselves; and others are so blind to their weaknesses that they hurt relationships and are not willing to improve.
Do yourself a favor and take an honest look in the mirror to see yourself as you really are. People you love and respect can help you out with this. Ask them to be completely open with you, and just know that it’s going to be just as hard for them as it is for you, so assure them that you won’t get mad or hold it against them — you’re just trying to get better.
Before you can conquer your goals, you must conquer yourself; before you can conquer yourself, you must know yourself.
