Discovering who you are is one of the most difficult things to do. However, when you take the time to learn and discover who you are as a person, your life becomes magical. You are able to quickly make good decisions to help you create a life filled with meaning, purpose, joy, fulfillment, and happiness.
1. Pay attention to what or who inspires you: Things and people that inspire you are an example of the person you are. We tend to admire someone because we have similar traits to them which we might not be aware of at the moment.
2. Self-reflect: You have to give yourself personal space to self-reflect on who you are and what you want in life. When you are constantly around other people, you are busy interacting with them. Sometimes you might think something is good when you are interacting with them, but it might not be what you want after you reflect on it. Set a daily 5-15 minutes to self-reflect on your day to see what you have been doing and what kind of lifestyle you want to develop for yourself.
3. Learn and try new things: You want to learn and try as many new things as possible. When you try new things, your brain would have to unleash certain knowledge and skills that you might never think you might have. Also, you have many strengths and talents with you, and by learning and trying new things, it would help you discover more about yourself and which strengths and talents best represent you.

4. Self-improvement: Always strive to become a better person. The more you can improve on yourself, the more you will discover who you are as a person such as your likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, talents, and passion.
5. Learn as you go: Knowing yourself is one thing, but applying what you know about yourself is another thing. Sometimes who you believe you change as you start taking actions to discover who you actually are. You have to start taking action and see what works and what does not work and adjust from there, and that is the only way for you to discover who you truly are.
6. Learn to unleash your passion: Your passion is a representation of who you are as a person because your passion develops from your heart and soul.
7. It is a process, not a destination: Learning about yourself never stops because there will always be something that you can learn more about yourself. In addition, you are constantly changing meaning that learning about yourself never stops. For example, when you learn something new, your thinking and mindset change, which means you change. When you interact with someone new, you are then influenced in a different way, which means you will change. Always remember that learning and discovering who you have no destination. The more you understand yourself, the more you will discover yourself.
