With technology in all of our hands and our nose nuzzled deep into our social media feeds, it can be difficult to truly be ourselves. We live in a world where we crave for companionship and love only to push it away because of the lack of education in communication. We are familiar with having to type our feeling, but reading your concerns or happiness is not always the best way to deal with your thoughts. Sometimes others will take something you meant to be funny, rude.
So how do we overcome all the layers hiding our ‘pure potential’?
1. Knowing yourself from the inside out
Who are you really? Are you able to sit down and spend some time with just you? It is so important knowing the value of YOUR time. Getting to know who you really are and how you want to be portrayed by the world
2. Starting on the inside where you obtain the most power
Working on yourself is and always will be an ongoing project. There is no such thing as being perfect, but we can all try to be as close as we can. Your power truly lies within your heart. All that you can and will accomplish is buried deep just waiting for you to grab hold and take off.
3. Bringing awareness of who you are
Have you ever thought about who you are, who you want to be and how you want the world to react and treat you?
- How are you showing up to the world?
Think about how you portray yourself to others. Maybe you are very assertive and not knowing when to tone down, can deter opportunities from your life. Becoming aware of how you act and how others respond to you will truly help you create better opportunities and relationships in the future.
- Does it match with how you want to be portrayed?
Now after bringing the awareness to HOW you are showing up, is this how you want to show up? Are you too assertive without realizing it? Maybe you are really shy and you want to be loud and outgoing? You have your true self within you, exactly how you want others to react to you is what you can and will achieve if you make the choice to work hard at it.
4. Making that choice to be that person
In the last point I talked about making a choice. You do not have to do anything to change. Talking about who you want to be and actually taking action are two completely different things. You need to make the choice to choose your path in life. So choose to be better and do better!
Nothing happens overnight. Change is and always will be an ongoing process that every one of us will go through. Trust yourself and your heart, get to know yourself and truly begin to see the transformation your life will endure. There is no need for you to take such large actions right away. Change can start with simply starting a conversation with the cashier at the grocery store. By truly unraveling your layers to becoming the person you want yourself to be is the FIRST step in truly living the life you crave.
