Are you on a path to self-discovery?

If yes, there are some questions that you must ask yourself. Even I have tried asking myself these questions- found answers to a few of them and still searching for rest of them. Even if you don’t get a prompt answer to any of these questions, you must keep trying as there is nothing purer than discovering your true-self. It is only through self-discovery that you get closer to realizing your dreams and goals along with their true significance in your life.

Given below are those questions that you must ask yourself if you are really keen on discovering your true-self:

1. What is it that you like about yourself the most?

It is only by admiring who you are, you start loving yourself and that is what leads to self-acceptance and inner peace in life. This should ideally be the first question that you should be asking yourself.

 2. What are the things you should be grateful for in your life?

You must learn to appreciate and be thankful for all good things and for people that hold value in your life. By simply asking yourself whom you should be thankful for, you get a clear vision of everything that is important to you and should be valued.

3. Is there anything you would like to change in yourself?

Just as important is asking what is important to you, equally necessary is analyzing what is it that you would want to change in you or your life. This will give you insights regarding the areas of life that need your attention and have to be worked out. Such analysis will eventually help you become a better person.

4. What are your deepest fears?

Do you fear losing someone close to you? What are the things that hold you back?

5. Are you satisfied doing what you’re currently doing?

Even though there is no mark to measure the level of your happiness or contentment, you can seek an answer to this life-changing question simply by looking inside you. If you feel there is something major missing or your heart calls out for something else, it’s never late to start thinking what can be done to change the things so as to pursue what gives you happiness and satisfaction in life. Along with this, you must consider asking yourself the importance of money and fame in your life. It could simply be that with everything you’re doing you want to earn more money or fame. Or, it could be the exact opposite. You possess a lot of money but you’re looking for some peace that you may get by pursuing things/ hobbies you’re most passionate about. Remember, there is nothing right or wrong in this world. It is all about making personal choices in life.

6. What/ who inspires you the most?

What is it that inspires you the most in your life? And to what extent are you willing to go or change things around you in order to lead a life that inspires you and motivates you to do better things in life. The answer will not only amaze you but also push you to move out of your comfort zone so that you can do things that you’re truly meant for.

7. What is the most important thing you’ve learned in life so far?

Is there any life-changing lesson you’ve learned in your life that has contributed to a lot of change in you? There are certain experiences in life that have the power to move you and influence the choices you make in your life. It is important, therefore, to understand what are the things that influence you and your thinking the most in your life.
