30 years of my life it has taken me to realise the hidden wisdom within that cryptic saying “know Thyself” by Socrates thousands of years ago. Knowing who you are means you know what your personality is and if it is suitable for the job you will be doing for the rest of your life; if you are an introvert,
you will not enjoy doing work where you must and need to entertain and socialise with your clients to generate business compared to someone whose
hobby usually involves partying a lot. Knowing who you are determines what your vision is for the future and it is that future that determines who will want to stay in your life whether a spouse, friend, business partner etc. People diverge from each other in life because of circumstances and because their vision of what they want in life, determined by who they are, conflict.
I learned this from Myles Munroe and a Facebook friend.
