Holding back at life is not an authentic way to live. Not only does it hinder you from discovering what you are capable of. It can also slow down or even stunt your growth. If you are looking for happiness and fulfillment, putting your best foot forward every day is the way to go. Whatever challenges you find along the way, the more you boldly move forward, the more you can live your story.
Get to know you. Spend time alone doing things that excite or inspires you. Cultivate self-awareness and notice the things that spark your curiosity. Find answers if you have to. Or ask questions that may lead to interesting discoveries. Take a spontaneous road trip alone. Or hang out with friends. You might be surprised with what you can learn about yourself as you devote time to things that lead to self-discovery.
Write down thoughts and ideas. Keep a journal. Take notes and keep track of ideas or reflections. Read old entries. This allows you to capture fleeting thoughts that might be worth exploring or thinking more about.
Do you. Don’t mind the labels. Or don’t be burdened by expectations. Don’t put yourself in the box to please anyone. Instead, strive to be a better version of yourself every day.
Step up, stand tall, and stand out. There are instances when you may notice that you seem to excel in doing a task at hand. Take note of situations where you stand out as it usually suggests that you are tapping into your strengths to get things done.
