Discover the True You

Take a step to find the true you.

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why.” - Mark Twain.

Have you found real meaning and purpose in your life? It’s much easier to answer this when you know who you are. By discovering the true you, you have the ability to enjoy a life that is fulfilling, exciting and feels right.

Who is the True You?

When I ask a person ‘Who are you?’ I am not trying to trick them. In fact, I don’t want to hear about their accomplishments and what they have been through in their life.

When I ask who you are, I want to know the true you.

This is a deep question that asks how well you really know yourself as a person - who you are when you look at your core, the inner you within your body.

Most people really cannot answer this question. If you can’t either, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

If you look back at when you were younger, you were always asked “what do you want to be when you’re older?” You weren’t asked “Who do you want to be?” A role you may have is different from you as a person.

It’s almost impossible to align your life when it comes to the true you, if you haven’t found yourself yet or are not sure who you are. As you can imagine, working to harmonise your environment with your passions and values can be exceptionally hard when you haven’t discovered the true you.

“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it.” - Buddha.

Finding the true you isn’t about a final destination or how you progress - it’s what feels right to you. Following your aspirations can help reveal the true you and allows you get to know you better as you move forward.

The good news is that everyone else can get to know the true you too. It’s not that hard to achieve. Living it makes you feel alive.

“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.”  - Steve Maraboli
