Whenever someone tells me “I need to find myself,” I suggest checking between the couch cushions. “Where was the last place you remember seeing yourself?,” I ask.
Too many people drift for years with the belief that their real lives will begin the moment they finally find themselves.
The acorn doesn’t search outside itself to become a tree. Successful people don’t find themselves—they make themselves. Success is a process of learning and growth, a daily act of creation which requires concentration, patience, and dedication to purpose. I believe everyone has the potential to do at least one thing well, and with great joy. But we’re often blind to our inner strengths. Even worse, we may focus on our personal weaknesses.
Never allow feelings of awkwardness or insecurity to define you. Don’t take what is best in yourself for granted. Take time to identify your personal strengths, and commit yourself to utilizing and fine-tuning these inner qualities in ways that will provide a rewarding career of joyful work.
“The best is yet to come” is true, but only when we choose to explore the best within ourselves.
