Do You Know YOU?

Think about the title for a second…Do you know you?  Have you actually sat down in a quiet room and asked yourself..Who am I?  Will your assessment line up with what others perceive of you?

Who people think who you are may be drastically different from your own perceptions, plus, this will differ from who you think you are. 

If you would have asked me some time ago if I was an introvert or extrovert, I would scream from the mountain top that I am heavily introverted.  I like to be alone and recharge my batteries in a quiet room with a blanket and remote control.  However, if you ask people who interact with me, they will tell you the direct opposite…I am extremely extroverted.  They see how I interact with people as well as understand my passion for public speaking.  What I’ve learned about myself is that I am now a combination of both.  There are times in which I like to be alone, but there are other times in which I need people in order to gain strength and energy.  If I had not taken the time to understand me, I would have done one action, when in reality I needed the other (thus, missing my fulfillment.) 

Take time to “interview” yourself.  Truly understand who you are, what you like, do not like, and what you need to do to improve.  By understanding yourself first, it will help you understand people better.  For instance, if you think you are good with money, but then learn that you are terrible with math, you will realize that a career in Accounting may not be good for you.  But, this does not mean that you can not counsel people on good money management. 

To find out who YOU is:

1.  Interview yourself

2. Take an honest assessment of strengths, weaknesses, likes, and dislikes

3.  Work to improve in some areas, understand the others that need work.

Have you taken time to understand you?  What benefits do you see in understanding who you are?

Kontinue to Konker.
