Discover the Best Ways How To Find Your True Self
We all experience moments in life where we feel lost. We aren’t sure which direction to go, or why we should even choose a direction at all. In those moments, we may feel overwhelmed with despair and hopelessness.
When we feel like we are just wandering through life, tapping can help us feel grounded and find direction. With this practice, we can learn to live in the present and tune into ourselves to figure out what we want and where we want to go. We also learn to surrender so that the universe guides us on the right path.
As we work on how to find your true self through tapping, we can also take other steps to find direction.
Steps to How to Find Your True Self
1. Be Quiet
You will not be able to know yourself until you take some time to stay still. Many people don’t really know themselves, because they are afraid of any sort of silence. It feels uncomfortable to stay alone, as people feel like every flaw is staring back at them.
But only when you stay alone, you can evaluate yourself and stay completely honest with yourself. Only then, you will be able to take a closer look at every facet of your life - both the good about the bad. Stay quiet and find your true self.
2. Understand Who You Are Instead of Who You Want to Be
Many people have a definite idea of who they so desperately try to be, but it might not be aligned with who they really are. With the social media around us, we see a false picture of other people’s successes and try to follow them.
When you know who you are and who you were designed to be, you will be finally able to see your specific gifts and how they fit into the bigger picture.
Pay attention and try to differentiate between your true self and the ideal person you are trying to be.
3. Find What You Are Good and Bad At
It takes trial and error to find what you are really good at and what you’re not good at, but it is a necessary step to finding who you are.
When you try to do something, and it doesn’t work out, it is important to find a balance between trying hard and knowing when to quit.
Don’t give up until you’ve had a sufficient number of attempts, but quit when you’ve put enough time and effort and aren’t getting anything back.
Only you can decide when is the right time to quit. When you do it correctly, you will open more room for something better. When the things you invest your time in don’t do anything but drain your energy - that’s the sign that you should focus your efforts elsewhere.
Finding your strengths and weaknesses will help you understand better how to find your true self.
4. Try New Things
It’s hard to find a new direction if you don’t change your life. New opportunities won’t just drop in your lap. Step outside of your comfort zone, take a chance and try new things.
Maybe you’ve been wanting to try something for a while, or you just learned about something that has piqued your interest.
Don't be afraid to take chances. You never know what new experiences will direct you to the next big thing in your life.
5. Do Things You Love
Life is short. Love every moment. If you’re spending all of your time doing things you don’t want to do, you won’t be able to find your path.
Do things that you love – no what you think you’re supposed to be doing. If you’re stuck in a job that you hate but you don’t know which direction to go, look inward.
Follow your own heart and start with the things that you love doing. Of course, we all have to do some things that we don’t like, but it’s important to incorporate activities that we love in our lives in order to learn how to find your true self.
6. Ask for Feedback
If you don’t know who you really are, hearing what others think about you may be helpful. Ask your friends or family members two questions:
- What strength do you believe I need to develop further?
- What weaknesses do you thinking I need to improve on?
Of course, you shouldn’t let the opinions of others to define how you feel about yourself. However, their feedback will help you see a few areas that you need to focus on.
This advice on how to find your true self is especially useful for those who have been trying and failing at finding themselves. Sometimes, people who are close to us can see something we are not able to see in ourselves.
7. Banish Negative Thoughts
Negativity can cloud our vision and make it difficult to see the road ahead. We lose motivation, we feel like we’re going to fail, and we lose our happiness.
Your tapping practice can also help you banish negative thoughts that may be stopping you from finding your direction in life. Adopting a positive outlook and preparing yourself to face any challenge you may face will help you find a path and follow it fiercely.
8. Don’t Hold onto Emotions
So many of us bottle up our emotions until that bottle bursts. Meanwhile, all of that repressed emotion takes up residence in our minds and keeps us from finding ourselves. Find a way to express your emotions in the moment.
Talking to someone is the simplest way to let those emotions go, but there are other healthy outlets that you can use to express your emotions, including: music, art, gardening and exercise.
When you’re free to express yourself and be perfectly honest about your emotions, you find yourself. You get to know yourself. That’s when you find what you desire and the direction you should be heading.
9. Assess Your Relationships
A huge part of knowing yourself can be found in your relationships. When you understand that you will never truly know another person until you discover yourself, the significance of knowing yourself becomes more obvious.
This is especially true for business leaders because if you don’t really know the people you are working with, you will be lost as a leader. Yet, this rule can be applied to virtually any relationship in your life.
Other people need to know who you are almost as much as you need to know yourself. People around need you - the real you. Only then can you understand how to find your true self.
