Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself
In life many of us are trying to discover who we are and what life really means to us. The truth is “life isn't about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.” It’s about discovering what we’re capable of and learning from our challenges in life to evolve into the person we inspire to be.
One of the keys to life is understanding “life is not about what you see, it’s about how you see it.” By looking at your problems in life as challenges to learn and grow from including physically, mentally, and spiritually, we are actually creating and defining ourselves with every moment we live and every breath we take. Basically, we live to learn so we may learn to live.
Life isn’t easy. As the saying goes, “you have to fall down before you can learn to stand tall”. But it’s not about getting knocked down, it’s about how we get back up and learn from our mistakes to become a better person, no matter what challenges life brings our way.
Whether we realize it or not, every choice we make forms us into who we are. It’s up to us if we decide to change our eating habits or exercise. It’s our decision to stand and fight or walk away. It’s you alone who decides to face the things you’re unhappy with in your life and change them or just accept them. Bottom line, every choice we make, every challenge we face, it’s how we choose to handle each moment in our lives that creates the person you see in the mirror each day.
I believe if you view your life as an endless lesson of life, you’ll focus less on the problems and more about the solutions to every challenge you face. What we need to do is embrace each problem in life, good or bad, to find the meaning behind it and allow it to become an opportunity to grow as a human being.
With this in mind, you can learn more from your experiences and make the choices that help create the person you want to be, and not let your surroundings make the decision for you.
Remember: “Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.”
“Be a voice of inspiration for change” in your life and others, and become the person you inspire to be.
