So you are sacrificing something when you go through life blindly. Conforming to everything you sacrifice your true potential and purpose.
Which you can only fulfill when you truly understand yourself. How to discover the real you, the answer lies within, look within yourself, not without.
For everything begins and ends with your thoughts. When people failed to understand or to know themselves. Their abilities, their frailties, and even their real virtues regret and sorrow is inevitable.
Most of us go almost all the way through life as complete strangers to ourselves, “yes this is true”. Because we lack an understanding of who we are.
Without which we are unable to know what we are capable of achieving in life. In the days of slavery in Europe and America, this was well understood.
Black people were forced to change their names to Western names so they would not remember who they really were.
They were banned from knowing how to read or write. That should make the lights flash in someone’s head.
The reason this was done was that their masters knew that if they knew how to read. They would discover many things, not only about the world around them but about themselves.
Their minds would be stretched to new levels of understanding. Reading is a powerful means of discovering who you are.
If you read the right books and other material. You will gain a deeper understanding of others as well as yourself.
Unfortunately, there are many who are in a self-imposed prison of ignorance even till today. The books are all around them but they can’t read.
No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading. Or be ready to surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance”.
Choose not to live in ignorance about who you are and what you can do. But decide today to discover more about yourself and to start on the journey of self-discovery.
I recommend you to read anything readable. Such as novels, magazines, newspapers, and most of it all the HOLY BIBLE the word of God.
Without it, you may never know who you really are and will not impact your generation.
Remember that it’s only by much searching and mining are gold and diamonds obtained.
And no man can be able to find every truth connected with his being. If he refuses to dig deep into the mine of his soul”.
