Lesson 6: Know yourself; be yourself


There is more to knowing yourself than just knowing your name. There is a saying that you cannot be effective without been authentic.  To go through life excellently,its important to know oneself.

How do I mean?
Things work very differently for people,which is because God has made each one of us uniquely. For some people, its so easy to read up 10 pages of a book in about 30 minutes while some others will take up to 60,90 or even 120 minutes.  Personally I realize how much of time i needed to spend on certain things before i can come out with something more than average or just good.

Knowing where you stand as a person in your relationships, in how you handle issues, in how to even take care of you is very important . This is because its a baseline for your improvement or growth.

I had to get to that point where I eliminated certain things from my schedule just to focus on doing some other things better. The more you function from the standpoint of an understanding of yourself,the easier it is for you a to approach life.

Over and again I have had to learn always to be sincere to myself :) That's the only way you can get the best out of life!!

Being yourself is a product of knowing yourself. This part may be a struggle especially when you are in the same environment as you used to be. But here's where a fight for yourself comes in because,truth is where ever you go,you will have to prove yourself by been yourself. lol. It's like transitioning to a new normal. Its especially hard if you have lived all your life being something or someone else i.e not exactly knowing yourself. There will always be a pull towards who you used to be.

There's a comfort and ease that comes from understanding how your person works! When you know it well enough,it will speak louder than even your words. Self checks help you to maintain who you are as you grow.

Doors Do Open

Have you ever felt like you have exhausted all of your options and you can’t seem to find a way out?  Or you know that there is more that can be out of a case you are on? I can’t imagine what the widow whose husband left some debts for her to pay before he died must have gone through.

Wait, you think all that happened is all there is. In the sense, you have pressed all your buttons and made all your moves. Knocked all the doors you know and made the calls. You now think its over. You think there’s no way out again? Be there! You seem to have forgotten so quick that God is the one that makes things happen. Look at the widow whose husband left her in debt. She was broke. No money no possession my sons up for sale kindof broke. Her two sons were going to be taken captive to pay for the debts that was on ground. Of course she was devastated. She had no possession to sell to get some money. The only thing she knew to do was to go meet Elisha who her husband served with. I imagine she had…

FOCUS N or P

I’m sure you are wondering by now, what does focus N or P mean?
Yeah,its worth the think. I’m sure you are familiar with the way a camera works, at least to some extent. The android phone/iPhone users can own this complement. You’ld often realize that some pictures don’t come out ‘fine’ or clear because whoever was behind the phone did not focus it right. Having seen the picture, you be like ‘omg this picture is blurry’. How many have friends who take blurry pictures (winks.)- this is by the way.(I do that sometimes). Youl’d realize that one or two taps on your android phone makes the image much clearer.
For my photographer folks, a gentle turn of that Nickon D3300’s focus ring  and or zoom ring would give a perfect picture. 
Just like a camera can produce both positive and negative images, so also our minds, based on our focus.
