People usually get ZERO 1:1 education on “knowing themselves” until they’re full-blown adults in therapy trying to understand why they’re unhappy. Or when they’re enrolled in later-in-life coaching trying, for the first time, to figure out WHO they really are.
One of the biggest pains and sources of anxiety in the developed world is being aimless – not knowing what to do next as the clock keeps ticking. As a society, ignoring this pain is extremely negligent considering that it’s avoidable. Because everyone has an internal compass…it’s just that barely anyone knows how to use it.
