Getting to know you

Getting to know you is probably one of the best things you can do for yourself, and yes I mean you knowing you, or you knowing yourself.

When you consider some of the sayings of sages past and present, then getting to know you is paramount.

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom” – Aristotle

“If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.” – Sun Tzu

“To grow yourself, you must know yourself .” – John C. Maxwell

A lot of times we look in the mirror, and we do not like who we see, but we will never get away from that person as long as there is breath in our lungs. So, rather than expend energy and effort trying to live in spite of ourselves, we must confront the one in the mirror. Make peace, forgive, love, then accept and be the best of who you can be. If you truly get to know you, you will discover that you are not as bad as you imagine yourself to be sometimes.
