It is not your name neither your profession, not even the course that you are pursuing. When asked about our identity we often come with some such answers, which really do not describe us. What actually is your true self? Are you simply the one who walks around, working and managing stuff or someone who is very different from the external body? When you get the answers to these questions, you can create harmony between your values and the external world.
Ethics and Values
Get to know your personal values, standards, priorities and beliefs. It is important because only then you can learn to commit to those beliefs and values. Your commitment to stick to your values and ethics would decide how true you are to your true self.
The power within
There are certain abilities and strengths that we are born with and the rest we learn from our external environment. Theses personal assets together have the capability to make you a winner in every sphere of life. They make you come from background to foreground to showcase your real talent. Your emotional strengths and your ability to express love in included in your inner strengths.
Know your real love
It’s high time to get to know what really you keeps going in life or what makes your heartbeat go faster. The things you love to do help you to create an internal harmony. Choosing a career base on your passion could give immense happiness and would never seem monotonous even after years.
Know your limitations
No doubt, you can master almost anything with efforts and hard work. However, consider some specific fields that you are good at and while choosing you ought to match you skills. Knowing your limitations lets you make wiser decisions in life and you get good results.
Know your goals
What is it actually that you want to do and what kind of a person do you really want to turn into? Remember, that your goals should be realistic and achievable. Clarity of your goals would make you find the ways out to reach to your destination. Hitting an arrow without any target would get you nowhere.
Know your purpose
One you are well aware of your values, strengths and limitations, it would be easy to get a direction in life. Know the purpose of your life is a great feeling. Millions of people spend all their life looking for something that they know nothing about.

You can survive even without getting to know the real self, millions of us do that but to live a meaningful life you have to get in touch with your true self.
