Know Yourself

The first steps towards living your own kind of wonderful

Here are some key questions for you when you are on your quest to live your most satisfying life:

  • What do you want? What is important to you in now?
  • Who do you want to be? Who are you when you are living your most fulfilling life?
  • How do want to feel? Everyday.

Being crystal clear about the answers to these questions will not only make it easier for you to shape your life the way you want it, this clarity will also help you in understanding yourself and other people.

Once you have this clarity, you also gain control over your life and the steps that you next want to take. With control comes responsibility for your own actions, thoughts and feelings. While that responsibility can sometimes be a drag… because yeah, sometimes it is just that, it also gives you Freedom with a big F. And I know many of you reading this are longing for a sense of freedom in your lives.

The possibilities that are opened in knowing yourself, fully, honestly, with clarity, and decided by that which is in your heart and not other people’s wants and expectations, are mind boggling. You now have choice.

You have choice about where you want to sit in the car of your life:

  1. Do you want to sit at the wheel, being in charge of where you are heading in life?
  2. Do you want to sit in the passenger seat, reading the map, giving advice on the best route, but ultimately not making the final decision?
  3. Do you want to sit in the backseat, being aware of the direction and road taken, but not with much to say about where you end up?
  4. Or, do you opt to be in the trunk of the car, oblivious of the journey and waking up at the end destination, positively surprised or mildly horrified of the end destination?

Whichever option you choose if completely fine, as long as you make a conscious and informed choice, based on what you want.

To explore this further, below is a Illuminations episode with me and Fi discussing what becomes available from crystal clear self-awareness.
