Six Reasons for a Lack of Self-Knowledge
The second reason people don’t know themselves: They think. It’s too “airy-fairy!”
If you don’t know yourself you make two serious errors in your life.
- You go into the wrong right kind of work–for you.
- You don’t marry the right person.
Then you won’t be happy.
How could you be when you screw those first two things up?
By “airy-fairy” they mean “soft,” not serious, especially for grown men.
THEY COULD NOT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH
It takes guts to delve inside and see the real person under the public personas.
People who choose not to know themselves better often do it because they are pragmatists or hard-nosed “show me the evidence” types. That’s fair enough, but they misunderstand the process.
They think the whole business of self-knowledge and self-love is “airy fairy,” insubstantial and silly.
It will blow away like the dandelion above.
Well, it’s not.
It can be among the most demanding things you do in life.
- You need to be rigorous and truthful.
- You will not like everything you discover about yourself.
- OK, so what?
You know that’s the case already.
KNOW YOURSELF–BE MORE SPECIFIC!
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT YOURSELF NOW.
- WHAT DO YOU LIKE?
- WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE
- What do you even know about yourself that isn’t a fiction, an old memory or a label?
This way, you’ll become more specific.
You will be able to really identify things about yourself, not superficial things but deep, life-changing things.
- You will “see” things you like about yourself and things that you don’t.
- You will discover things about yourself that you never knew until now.
- You will see problems that need solutions.
That will be multiplied astronomically when you become a detective of yourself.
You can identify a problem and then solve it.
But you can never solve a problem you don’t “see,” that you can’t identify.”
