Know Yourself, You Can Become What You Are Meant To Be!

You can be anything that you want if you religiously follow the words inscribed below. If you are passionate about something – is merely having a passion enough or would you like to work towards your passion transforming your life?

Rationalize, identify, give clarity to your thoughts and start taking strides towards your goals. Everyone deep down knows what they want to be. A few make the effort and run the race, whereas, the rest sit and watch the race. It is for you to decide on which side of the table you want to be on. Now, that decision belongs to you.

To be successful, you need to first choose a path. And that’s the main task – not the main challenge. If you know your passion and the values that motivate your choice and personal velocity. You are more than halfway through to your goal. But, that isn’t always the case.

In order to make your passion your profession, you need to understand who you are within – a thorough understanding of your strengths and weaknesses. You have to recognize the drive and intensity that comes naturally to you. You have to be familiar with all the positives, neutrals, or negatives that you carry. You should be able to identify your behavioral style and know the pattern of your choices. Once you have teamed up your personality with your objective, you are not far from tasting success.

Success is not what others see, but how you feel. It is the happiness that you get by fulfilling your own desires, respecting the values within, and appraising yourself for what you are. You teach people how to treat you. If you don’t feel happy and successful yourself, nobody else can. A constant reassurance from others does no good.

The money will follow if you live your dream and do so, religiously. Hard work is all it takes. To assure you, success is like that magnet that attracts everything and everyone, and you are going to be no exception. People follow those who follow their dream. These people are the same people who would have stopped you once just because either they were scared themselves or did not want you to attain any success. But once you stop listening to them, they begin to pay more attention to you, because you are making your own way which they could not.

To start trusting yourself, and begin walking on the right path, you need to #DO the following:

Stop Procrastinating

Refrain from making excuses and abstain from complaining or blaming. If you do not do this, you will never be able to understand what you really want to do. Your mind will always be occupied by negative thoughts and there will be no room left for clarity. Start Living Today, YES, today is the day. Begin right now, right away, and stop postponing.

Find unlocks

Open up all that helps you identify who you are. Forget about the world; don’t think about what others think of you. For once, get selfish, and see yourself through your eyes. Visualize who you aspire to be. The answer is within you, just look for it. Strive hard to search for it; take a deep dive within. Let all the misery and trouble be a part of this pursuit. It will give you clarity, as these are hints to help you identify what you don’t want to be so that you can reject the rest and filter your wants.

Differentiate between living and existing

If you want to get closer to the answer of what you want to be, then assist yourself to distinguish between living and existing. Living is when you live life the way you had dreamt of, by living your passions and accomplishing your dreams. Whereas, existing is just for the sake of surviving because you are too comfortable in your zone and you are afraid of changes that success would bring to your life. That is, you only exist, but you do not have a purpose.

Feel the fear

Have fun with fear. The only failure is not to try. Take risks, experiment, and explore. Set yourself free and let your mind wander around a little longer to gather all that it has missed. Conquer self-doubt and negative feelings. Give yourself logic and answers to justify your course of action. But, don’t let it cause anxiety or terrorize you, as this can hinder your pace towards success.

It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.

– Albert Einstein

Adios to your comfort zone

Ditch your comfort zone. Let it not get toxic and soak you in. We all love our comfort zones but you cannot identify your talent sitting on your couch. You need to get up and start testing your mental. Most people don’t end up doing what they want to because they are too attached to who they have been.

Be persistent

Recognize your pattern and identify who you desire to be. The human mind is manufactured in such a manner that thought stuck in the mind once is obsessive enough to compel you to become noxious till the time you actually conquer it. So, use this ability to get to your goals. Use it in the right direction. And you can do anything, be anyone you want to be.

Have a purpose

Unless you have a purpose, all your actions will be futile. To do anything there should be a cause, followed by the effect. A reason is all it will take to drive you; to make you do what you really want to do. Find a good enough motive that keeps you going. To make it easier, look for a reason that drives you to wake up every morning without hitting the snooze button.


Go back to your basics. That is a good place to start with soul-searching, to get all your questions answered.

The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.

– Pema Chodron

Exercise 1: A simple exercise to do this would be to pen down the things you enjoy doing and the things you don’t. Mention anything and everything that you can think of, regardless of how crazy it might be. Pen it down on a piece of paper. Write it, for your own sake! Next, begin to strike out the things that are not on your priority list. Consider realistic and applicable factors; be true to yourself while executing or you may end up deceiving yourself.

Exercise 2: Ask your close ones to assess you, and speak their heart out. At times you know the answer and you have the potential, but you still want someone to reassure you. Talk to them, let them help you get your thoughts organized, or, prepare a list of questions around yourself that you want others to answer for you. Allow them to answer, what they feel about you – compliment or criticism. Be prepared and willing to face the results. Bear in mind, ask only those who know you well, or the ones whom you are sure will give honest feedback.

What’s your story?

Your story is what defines you. Who you are? What do you do? What are those experiences or adventures from your book of life that you can share with others and create an impact on yourself? Your story will help you discover aspects that you might have missed out on, but are the most crucial ones. This allows you to bridge the gap between your past experiences and future prospects.

Elevate your standards

Have the guts to answer all the questions your mind wants to ask – Face Them! They give you immense clarity, and once you are aware, promote your principles.

To get here, you need to take up self-discipline, modify your habits, become committed, and make sure you do whatever it takes. Practice is the key to all your questions. If you master this, you can be anyone you want.
