Understanding and knowing yourself and who you are is so crucial in your journey. How you think, process, and go about every aspect of your life will come to fruition. If you know you get in funks and start thinking negatively, understand that you have to get out of that quickly. You can bring yourself down even more if you don't process in your mind that you will succeed in whatever you're passionate about.
Take the time to think about your life and how much you truly know yourself. Do you understand your thoughts, why you think the way you do? Do you understand what causes you to get in a negative mindset? Is it because you're not seeing the results you would like? Is it because you see others getting ahead of you in your life? Do you think that you should be where you should be now so you can celebrate the fruits of your labor? This is the process of fully understanding yourself.
The next thing that I want you to think about when understanding yourself is what motivates you everyday? Do you need someone or something to motivate you? Are you naturally motivated to do great things? Is it a combination of both? This is part of your character and who you are and what's in your DNA.
Once you understand yourself and who you are, your journey becomes easier and endless.
Be good everyone and go accomplish your goals!
