Humanity has received reminders of this wisdom Oprah shares throughout centuries. (By the way, who loves Oprah? I can’t get enough of her these days.)
Polonius said the same in Shakespeare’s Hamlet: “This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
The thing is, knowing yourself takes a little work. A little practice. Quiet time. Questioning. Investigation. Looking up. Introspection. All these things, and more.
What has been one of your gifts of knowing yourself, along the way?
For me personally, it’s usually a feeling–a feeling that something either is or is not right for me, and if it does not feel right, then a drive to understand what IS right for me.
I have learned to feel and understand what that deep sense of knowing is, to me.
I’d love to hear thoughts! Or even questions? I think that question of ‘how’ you know is probably one of the biggest ones of our time.
The work I do helps people unlock their own ways of knowing.
