Whether you are searching for a career, want to create a great relationship, or are wondering what you want to do with your life, there is one place you have to start. You have to know who you are. And that’s not always an easy task. It’s not just about where you live or what you do for a living. It’s not just about your favorite tv shows and favorite color. It’s not just about the roles that you play like parent or child. It’s about discovering your voice and learning how to speak your truth with it. It’s about getting in touch with the real you-your authentic self.
For all of these steps you may want to design a creative environment that will assist you in listening to your inner voice. Surround yourself with the sounds of music and scents and images that inspire you. Meditation, prayer, or taking a walk might inspire you. Find out what works best for you.
