My current Netflix binge show is, “Restaurants On The Edge.” This show is a winner in my books because it combines travel, culture, food, and transformation. A talented trio consisting of a chef, a designer, and a restauranteer, travel around the globe to different restaurants that are in trouble. They truly listen to the owners – their passions, their struggles, their stories, and who they are. This power team of three uses their personal strengths, the vision of the owners, and the very best of the location’s geography, cultural elements, and local foods to truly transform these restaurants. By the end of each episode, the owners have a beautiful renovation with a fresh design of their restaurant, a new menu, and the finest of what the specific location and culture have to offer. The owners always end up in tears because not only do they have a completely renewed restaurant, but these designers “got” them in ways that they themselves were not able to envision or to express up to this point.
What is the importance of truly knowing ourselves?
Have you ever noticed in long-term friendships or in a marriage that you are still finding out new things about the other person? Relationships are always dynamic. The same is true about ourselves. Life is always changing and along with it, so are our experiences, our perspectives, and who we are. It is a life-long and constant journey to know yourself because you are always changing. Make the time to get reacquainted with this amazing person.
Everything in our life stems from who we are. You are a unique, one-of-a-kind human being. There is no one else like you. You are a distinct mixture of an incredible personality, strengths, experiences, dreams, and desires. When we truly make the time know ourselves, our lives will be transformed.
10 Ways Your Life Will Transform Through Greater Self-Knowledge:
GREATER HAPPINESS – Do you truly know what your values are? Can you spout off your top 5 values right now? By knowing, connecting with, and living out your values on a daily basis, it is a guaranteed way for happiness to chase you down and overtake you.
CLARITY – When you are clear within yourself, you know what you want, what your unique personality and strengths are, how you need to communicate with others, how to conquer what is holding you back, how to have more joy in life, and what your purpose is.
GREATER PEACE – You will have less inner conflict about what to do and who you are. Your increased clarity will give you a greater inner peace as you navigate through life.
MORE CONFIDENCE – Having a stronger sense of identity produces greater ownership of your life and a confidence that declares boldly to the world, “This is who I am! And I am here to fulfill my unique purpose!”
BETTER RELATIONSHIPS – Through understanding yourself more, you will understand others better and which will lead to thriving relationships.
AWARENESS – Taking the journey to know yourself creates greater awareness. You can discern what may be holding you back and you can uproot any limiting beliefs that you discover along the way. Greater awareness gives us more choice in life.
CHOICE – Instead of living on living in auto-pilot, you will be choosing your life. More choices lead to change and transformation. Being more at choice allows you to live with intention, freedom, empowerment, and purpose.
STRATEGY – By knowing what truly fits your soul, you can design and intentionally make your life happen. You can build your life around what you love, what you value, and what resonates with you.
HIGHER MOTIVATION – Often times when we struggle with motivation, we are not connected with why this is significant to us. When you have a deep connection with your identity and your “why,” your motivation remains strong.
THE RIPPLE EFFECT – Building a stronger foundation for your life tends to have a positive ripple effect so that everything in your world improves - your relationships, your job, your health, your finances, and your daily life.
I would like to invite you on a year long journey to dive in to a lifestyle of greater purpose, joy, peace, clarity, and success.
