How Would You Describe Yourself?

Take a moment after reading this to close your eyes and imagine you’re standing before a vast, radiant mirror.

This mirror is unique, it reflects not just your physical self but also your inner self—your strengths, your passions, your values, and your dreams.

Begin to describe what you see.

Are you a compassionate friend, a driven professional, a creative thinker, or a passionate advocate?

What qualities shine the brightest? Now, look closer. 

What hopes and dreams are flickering, waiting to burst into flame? 

Do you see an artist waiting to create their masterpiece, a leader eager to make a difference, or a learner thirsty for knowledge?

Hold this image in your mind, and when you’re ready, open your eyes and write down everything you saw in the mirror.

Remember, this is your personal reflection, your unique self-description. 

There’s no right or wrong way to do this and all that matters is that it resonates with you.

“It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in an activity trap, in the busy-ness of life, to work harder and harder at climbing the ladder of success only to discover it’s leaning against the wrong wall. It is possible to be busy – very busy – without being very effective.”

Stephen R. Covey (Author of “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”)

Life is an extraordinary, complex wall-hanging tapestry that weaves together a complicated pattern of experiences, emotions, memories, and aspirations.

Each one of us carries our own unique identity, and together represent the answer to a profound question: How do you describe yourself?

Understanding yourself effectively is a journey of self-discovery, it’s a process that empowers you, builds your self-esteem, and helps you strive to be the best version of yourself.

It’s about painting a holistic, compelling picture of who you are and who you want to be.

Your self-description is your personal narrative, your story.

Remember, you’re the author of your story, and every day presents a fresh page for you to write upon.

So, what’s your story?

Spread the word. Share your love.
