Are you growing into your true self? This sounds like an odd question doesn’t it? By growing into your true self I mean, acting like you want to be and taking actions needed to be or do what you want to accomplish.
This isn’t an easy task when you’re starting something new and unfamiliar. You have to be unafraid to make mistakes and looking foolish. Being open to criticism is also part of the process.
I feel that I started growing into my true self when I decided to be a writer. I wasn’t a good student. Putting words on paper that would motivate people to be their best selves was a self concept that was unbelievable to me.
I decided that I would do whatever I needed to do to be a writer. This included writing something everyday, whether it be a few words, sentences, or pages. I increased my reading. This included books, newspapers, internet articles, magazines, and whatever sparked my interest. I’ve gone to writers conferences and have attended night classes over many years.
I’m still taking the steps needed to improve my writing by gathering information for my newsletter, writing this blog post, and participating on my many Facebook groups. I’m also learning how I can promote my writing, which is difficult for me. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
What can you do to grow into your true self whatever that might be? It doesn’t matter how young or old you are. Experienced or not, the key is to start wherever you are and just do it. I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
