Knowing yourself is one of the great keys to living well and achieving personal development. Therefore, in this article we will see what they are the main keys to improving self-knowledge.
How to improve self-knowledge
Since the beginnings of humanity, we have known that knowing ourselves and giving a purpose to our life is what makes us live with meaning, well-being and fullness. However, we often live as automatons and without being aware of who we are, why we think the way we do, how we created the needs we think we have, what we are afraid of or even what our purpose in life is. .
Why is it so difficult to improve self-knowledge? Just like when you look at yourself in the mirror you see your face upside down something similar happens to who you think you are. You see yourself thinking that your beliefs, needs, or fears are real. However, you cross paths with the real ones to identify with them.
So, below, we are going to go over several keys to improve your knowledge and thus be able to discover who you are and what is your purpose in life. In my case, I discovered them during 10 years of experience accompanying people from up to 5 different countries to get to know each other better and discover their great raison d’être. This is what I learned from all of them and what you can apply in your life to find out who you really are.
1. Forget who you think you are
The big mistake we make with our self-knowledge is thinking that we already know who we are. If you try to answer the question “who am I?”, You will find that you can only reply with credentials.
You think you are a name, a nationality, a way of thinking, a profession, etc. But these are only identifications and attributes. To know who you really are, you must first forget about everything you think you are right now.
2. Do not identify yourself
To know yourself in depth, you need immerse yourself in every layer of your personality: From your environment, behavior and attitudes, to your system of beliefs, values and identity. To achieve this, it is imperative that you do not label yourself or believe that you are a personality type A or B.
The self-knowledge tools that give you a label are very poorly understood. These tools allow you not to identify yourself, not to do so. Try not to identify yourself 100% with these tools or label them with anything.
3. Don’t let anyone tell you who you are or what your goal is
If someone gives you advice, guides you, directs you and tries to tell you who you are, he will only lend you his ideas and beliefs.
You alone decide who you are and what your goal is, and you get there if you start a process of deep self-knowledge where you break free from what you think you are and move on to building a new personality, more related to your essence. and not your ego (fictions created throughout your life about who you think you are).
4. Start a transpersonal process
Transpersonality means “beyond personality” and personality is a word that comes from Pessoa, from Latin, and means “mask”. exact, your personality is your mask, Not who you really are. A transpersonal process is what will cause you to overcome your ego and discover your true purpose.
5. Answer the appropriate questions
Questions are the best way to get to know you. However, it is a mistake on your part to ask these questions. You have to answer it. In a process of self-knowledge and change an expert professional asks you the right questions.
6. Apply what has been learned to your life
It’s not just about responding or reflecting, it’s about applying each of the changes you find you need to make in your life. Your new life will be built if you make it a reality with different actions, Not only with good intentions. Only then will you be able to know: act and discover yourself in front of yourself.
7. Find the expert company
Over the past 10 years, as I told you, I have accompanied people from 5 different countries to achieve the changes in their lives and the personal development they deserve. I did this as a psychologist and coach, and in all of these cases, I found that self-knowledge was the key.
That’s why I designed Meet You, a free self-knowledge program so that you can take the first steps and answer the appropriate questions. With a professional and expert company that works like a mirror, this journey takes you safely and ethically inside. You can find this program within Human Empowerment, the personal development school that I run.
Improving your self-knowledge is a process that can take some time, but with the right company, you can get to know yourself and discover your big goal in life in about two months. It is a deep and very particular process to which I invite you from now on, because it is you and your life which will change thanks to your own change.
