You can easily be a much better person than you presently are. All you have to do is to not only know the kind of person you are but also to strive hard to be the kind of person you want to be. Self-discovery will help you do all that. Behind every successful person is a long series of self-discovery and continuous improvement. Begin now the journey of self-discovery and remember, self-discovery is a life-long process.
Be realistic about yourself. Uncover the limitations, faults and shortcomings that have formed a part of you, however upsetting, disappointing or surprising it may be. Only when you are willing to confront them directly will you be on the path of self-improvement leading to eventual happiness and success. Understand that a deep-held belief about your self is not necessarily a real truth.
What goes on in your life is either for better or worse. Ensure that it constantly becomes better by self-discovery and self-improvement. Begin this process at this very moment by recognizing that it is only when you accept that you are separate from your faults that you are able to discard them with ease. You begin to realize that these weaknesses are not existing in you as permanent qualities and so they can be overcome eventually. An awareness of your weaknesses facilitates the process of self-change.
Don’t just be satisfied with the kind of person you think that you are. Always bear in mind that none of you is born perfect. But you can make great efforts to bring yourself close to perfection. Even if you think you are nearly perfect, there will always be room for improvements. Have the determination and courage, and begin now the process of self-change.
