Being someone who suffers from an identity crisis a lot I can assure you that it is important to know oneself. I have truly struggled with accepting the real me. This is why I find it critical to write an article about how to be the real you.
To be able to appreciate your own identity you must know who you are. What kind of image do you portray and who do you want to be in the future. In order to truly know yourself, you must understand your core. Your personality traits and your goals in life.
We often get asked this question in interviews, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? And to impress the interviewer we often answer hopefully working with you for the next 5 years on a managerial level.
How wrong is that statement? It just goes to show we haven’t mapped out our life at all. We haven’t planned anything. One must plan ahead. Not two days not a week but a year at least. And let life play its part as you try to grow and achieve your goals.
Set goals such as:
Find a reliable income source.
Try to be a better version of myself.
Recognize your bad habits and tackle them one by one.
Start reciting or praying more.
Be more independent
Have Faith in yourself to be able to achieve the goals that you have laid out for yourself. Trust in the fact that the goals that you have set for yourself are not only achievable but under your control. Life events cannot interfere with that. Hence, why it’s important to set goals that solely depend on you gearing up to achieve them.
“You are not made of gold”
You can’t always be perfect or right. Like everyone else around us, you also have good traits and bad traits. Lets for the sake of argument not call them bad traits rather use the word quirks. Everyone has personality quirks. Even our beloved celebrities have them, but they can get away more of the time as most of their audiences are very forgiving while some of them face ruthless criticism every step of the way. So try to recognize your own personality quirks and make a goal to fix them.
How to be the real you completely depends upon you. Stand strong and stand tall at all times. You are who you are and you must not change for the world. Try to be as real as possible. Present the best version of yourself. You are answerable to yourself only so try to be better and improve yourself for your own sake. So you can feel good about your self.
