‘Life begins at the end of your comfort zone’
I always liked this quote and have made this my motto in life. Every single step I took in my life was because of this quote and it has helped me grow as a person. But this time though, I got out of my comfort zone and went really far out.
For most of my life, I wondered about my life purpose and was really eager to discover myself, to know what I really want in my life. Life lead me to India, a land where many have come to be lost, to be found, to be discovered, to be actualized. True to form, I ‘found’ myself here.
Here are 5 ways to go about your self-discovery:
1. Be courageous
One lesson I learned is to have the courage to seek new opportunities and experiences and to let go of the things that no longer help you grow. This is the hardest lesson but once you do it, you start learning about your own strengths and weaknesses and this makes you feel like a better and stronger person, ready to conquer life.
2. Never waste time
Time is the most precious thing in your life and you should learn how to use it well in achieving your future plans.
3. Learn to be an Observer
Make life more interesting by admiring everything happening around you. Life is a lot more interesting if you learn to admire, observe and learn from everything around you. As long as you are willing to learn, you will see e an impact in your life that makes you see things differently.
4. Be open-minded
Try to accept new situations and deal with them as challenges because amazing change happens when you decide to take control of your life.
5. Make plans for the future and pursue them.
When you pick something you enjoy and go after it, two things happen. First, you gain a sense of confidence in yourself. Second, this confidence brings new and interesting people into your life.
Finding yourself may sound like a selfish goal, but it is actually an unselfish process that is the starting point of everything we do in life. In order to be the most valuable person to the world around us, we have to first know who we are, what we value and, in effect, what we have to offer.
Finding yourself, my friends, will be the greatest and most important adventure of your lives :)
