Self-Discovery: Why Unleashing Your Potential Is So Empowering
But self-discovery often gets lost in the busyness of life. You might look at yourself every day in the mirror, but still fail to see you.
Don’t give up!
It’s a goal worth pursuing because unleashing your potential will empower you. Here’s why.
It Helps You Define Your Core Values and Purpose
Many people go through life without really knowing what they’re all about. For instance, do you know what core values drive you?
Without truly opening yourself up to self-discovery, unleashing your potential is unlikely because you’re left blind to your true self.
Defining your core values requires you to pinpoint exactly what is important to you. When you determine what is important to you, that knowledge will empower you to fulfill your purpose in life. Only then will you be able to clearly operate from your true self. And, your true self isn’t motivated by fear, neither does it have a desperate need to put up walls.
It Does No Longer Let Defense Mechanisms Make Choices for You
It’s not uncommon for people to make decisions from a place of fear. After all, you want to protect yourself and guard what you have. So, defense mechanisms can play a huge role in the choices you make.
With self-discovery, you have the opportunity to peel away your layers of defense and look at your true self. Ultimately, you can empower yourself to make decisions from that place, rather than being motivated by fear.
There is an element of vulnerability in self-discovery that focuses on unleashing your potential. Not only does vulnerability empower you, but it also offers a sense of invaluable freedom.
It Opens Up a Door to Ongoing Learning About Yourself
Self-discovery is basically like entering a classroom where the objective is to get to know you. It might sound really simple or even like an easy A+. But it takes work and focus.
Yet, the interesting part about self-discovery is that once you unleash your potential, it’s ongoing. The self-discovery classroom doesn’t have a final test. Life itself is the test. More than a test, though, life is the experience that molds you into who you are.
The rut that many people get stuck in involves ignorance about themselves. They close the doors to self-transformation and accept the “old dog” status (in that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks). That is the wrong attitude to have.
It Allows You to Reconnect With Your Inner Child
To truly empower yourself through self-discovery, it’s important to reconnect with your inner child. Your inner child is where your core values originated from and also where you earnestly embrace your passion in life.
Nurturing that special place inside of you will help you in unleashing your potential. The further you embark on a self-discovery mission the more you will get to know the core of who you are.
Not only is this self-discovery process liberating, but it’s healing. Wounds that have been festering since childhood are often the same wounds that keep us trapped behind our defenses well into our adult life. Self-discover can empower you by allowing true healing to come to deep childhood wounds or traumatic experiences.
And to feel healed and whole is to be empowered.
