gain self-knowledge get to know yourself

You’ve heard the expression “Knowledge is power”, but have you ever considered that concept in terms of knowing and understanding yourself? Once you know who you are, you’ll be able to answer the important questions in life like, “Who am I?” “What matters to me?” “What do I want to do with my life?”

When you possess self-knowledge, you have a true appreciation for:

  • What you like and dislike

  • What you want

  • What your motives are

  • What your values are

  • What you believe in

  • Why you behave as you do

When you decide to pursue self-knowledge, it can be a little scary at first because it may mean you’ll end up questioning everything you’ve been taught. At the same time, only when you ask those questions and learn to think independently can you be completely honest with yourself and form your own opinions based on your true personal value system and beliefs. You are the only one who knows, deep down inside, what you truly think and feel.
