Seek Your True Self!
Seek Your True Self and Find What Really Motivates You!
The hardest thing that a person could achieve is finding out who he or she really is. It’s not some literal question but rather who are you going to follow and who are you going to become? A lot of people look up to others as their role models, their inspiration, and their mentors. It’s fine to have these people around you. However, it’s also nice to build your own character rather than growing in the images of others. Becoming and living your life as who you are is the driving force to motivate yourself.
Why Is It Important to Seek your True Self?
It’s more like searching for the next puzzle piece. It’s a part of building the big picture that lies ahead of your life. As early as now, take a good look at yourself and ask, “Who am I and what will I become?” and when you find the answer to that, the rest is just following the right path.
Act Your Character: Be Who You Want to Be
The world wouldn’t have been the same if the most influential people who ever existed never had the guts to act out on their own will and carve a name and a brand for themselves. Uplift your spirits not only by merely trying to think of who you are going to be but rather do it for the sake of your dreams and future. The life we live cannot be defined with anyone else nor can they withhold the person you are to be once you act it out.
Along my journey I found out that it was impossible to seek my true self without God’s guidance. Therefore, I had to seek God by committing my life to him and then praying for God’s will in my life.
God's will, first and foremost, is that we have a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-4).
The Bible helped me to know God's will for my life. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105).
God promises to give us wisdom if we just ask Him in prayer, believing that He will give it. Sometimes we need to just ask God to give us wisdom to discern His will. “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5).
I had to trust God in faith that He will accomplish His will in my life. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Prayer: Lord, help us to seek You daily and allow us to trust the plan You have for our lives. Amen!
