10 Reasons to be True to Yourself

10 Reasons to be True to Yourself

Your true being gives and shows what is real, important, and necessary for you. When you choose to live your life to reveal your true being, you open the world to you, you open yourself to opportunities, miracles and real relationships. You stop living your life with your mind and its borders and rights and wrongs, but you live with your heart with no faults or delusion. Just to grow within.

1. It gives you freedom.

Honesty sets you free. There are no masks to wear, no worries what others will think of you. You are true to yourself and others. You don’t make yourself live in a cage with borders and understanding. You live your life as a gift to become free and meet your true being.

2. You have true and real relationships.

When you are honest to yourself, when you don’t want to pretend to be a different person just to look good in other people’s eyes, you can have pure, real relationships with them. You don’t play a character. Your Ego is not the director of your life, but your heart is.

3. You save a lot of energy and time.

Pretending and adapting to the outer world takes a lot of energy and time. Your thoughts are running 100 miles per hour, worrying about what you should say or do to impress others. In the end you keep saying nothing and nobody can see your true being–your uniqueness.

4. You release your fears.

When you truly accept yourself–realizing your weaknesses and strength–you don’t hide, but try your best to show others your best part. Make it shine. There are no fears of failures or other’s opinions. You take each situation or moment to find out something new about yourself and go closer to your true being.

Live Your Own Life

    5. You live your own life.

    When other people’s opinions are not important anymore, you stop spending each moment wondering how you should live to make others happy. When you choose to spend more time and energy to know yourself better, you will do anything and everything it takes to get closer to your true self. You can truly live your life.

    6. You experience inner growth and change.

    Realizing who you are and feeling who you want to be, you do anything to become that person. And you do it for yourself not others.

    7. You love yourself and attract more love.

    Love is to accept and to understand. The more you love yourself, the more love you attract from outer world.

    Love Yourself

      8. You can see the light in others, and best part of them.

      When you stop doing everything to hide your dark side, you stop seeing in others their dark side and you do your best to see the Light in them. No matter how deep or far it is, you know behind all those masks, there is their unique true being and you can help them believe in it.

      9. You can ask forgiveness and express gratitude.

      You notice things the way they really are. You see the reality and you live in it. You appreciate moments to be thankful for and you know when to ask for forgiveness. You can change from your mistakes, because they make you even more honest and give you the opportunity to grow.

      10. Subtle world and God come in your being and life.

      When you take off all your masks and release your fears, then you are ready to look into your true being. When there are no doubts and worries, time stops and you let God (in whatever incarnation you believe) come in your life and guide you. There is no day or moment when you can’t be yourself. It is your choice and decision, to please others or be brave, and let your best part and true being shine inside out. It is a great journey with lot of miracles and surprises. It is a journey where you can meet yourself.

      7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

      7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

      What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

      For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

      It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

      1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

      The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

      What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

      The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

      2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

      Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

      How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

      If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

      Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

      3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

      Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

      If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

      These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

      What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

      4. What are my goals in life?

      5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

      You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

      Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

      6. What do I not like to do?

      An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

      What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

      Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

      The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

      7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

      Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

      But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

      “What do I want to do with my life?”

      So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
