How many times over the years have your heard that you have to know yourself before you can even begin to understand your purpose, capitalize on your talents and excel in life? It has even been said that knowing yourself makes for better interpersonal interactions. I know if I had a dollar for each time someone said this to me, or each time I heard it repeated to someone else, I would be some kind of a millionaire today.
You may be saying, “Well, we live in a day and age where people should know who they are.” But I have seen too many talk shows with psychologists trying to help people find and know themselves, and I know too many people who are still trying to find themselves and their purpose. If you stop for a minute and take stock of your life and those in your circle, you may just know someone who is still now aware of who they are.
