JOURNEY TO SELF
Anybody miss me?
I am sure you did as much as I've missed you all. I am sorry for the break.
Don't let me bore you with the seven mountains I had to climb and seven seas I crossed to be back.
Guess what? I am back and even better.
Thank you for sticking through and through.
This would have been your perfect "Monday morning motivation" but it's Tuesday and hey, every day is the Lord's day.
In our quest to become a better version of ourselves. To discover who you are in life, we must be intentional and deliberate about who we are and what is our form.
Knowing your personality is key in self-discovery.
How Do I Create My Personality?
According to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Your personality is set by no one but you. It encompasses the actions you take and the decisions you make. Either you are a patient person or not, a responsible person, or not. Try asking yourself some searching questions to discover just what kind of person you are, such as: "if you found an animal hurt and alone, what would you do?" or "if you won the lottery how would you spend your time and money?".
You may not be able to change your personality type, but you can change aspects of your personality by taking determined, active steps to become a more balanced person. Taking up a hobby is a great way to become a well-rounded individual. Sports can help you learn teamwork, arts and crafts can make you more patient, volunteering can help you become more caring. Even just reading a book can expand your horizons and push you to be better.
How Can My Personality Affect Others?
Being positive and upbeat can influence everyone around you, and so can negativity. For example, a friendly smile to a stranger can brighten up their day, just as glare can cause their mood to drop. Bear in mind the famous Bible quote from Jesus of Nazareth, "Do unto others as you would have them do to you".
While you may not be able to help it if you are having a bad day, or if you don't like doing a particular task, changing your attitude changes everything. Complaining and sulking will only make time drag when doing an unpleasant job. Instead, try to shift your thoughts and redirect your mind. Being a more pleasant person helps everyone.
Be All You Can Be
Understanding these examples of personality traits is a great way to start your journey toward self-discovery. Make a concerted effort to fill up that journal with evocative questions and answers. Make the investment and mold yourself into the best possible version of yourself. If you're up for the challenge, you can make positive changes to your personality.
Your action plan.
- Pray, hold on to God. No matter how you want to go around it, God is the center of every other thing.
- Read_ read people's lives too.
- Remove the things that you have believed through life. Be ready to learn, unlearn, and relearn.
Whatever you do, make sure you keep on unveiling the best part of you.
