There are many people out there that can help you to learn more about who you are. Friends can help you, along with many good teachers and professionals who will explain your feelings and analyze your thoughts.
Focus on making your time spent working as productive as possible. Something you can do is to increase the amount of short breaks you take throughout the workday. This may seem counterproductive, but by taking constant breaks, you have time to unwind and recharge so that when you get back to work, you can get more stuff done.
Be prepared to write down ideas as they come to you, no matter where that may happen. Keep a small notepad and pen with you at all times. Write down as much as you can, and then refer to it later when you have a creative burst of energy.
Create your own pep talk. On an index card or postcard, write down all the things that are good about you. Keep the card in your purse or wallet, and pull it out every time you feel depressed and defeated or have a negative thought about yourself. You could also record a list of your positive traits and watch them on video. The reason to watch the video or read the postcard as often as possible is to remind yourself of how wonderful you think you are.
Try to spend less time bragging about your own accomplishments, and take the time to ask people about what they’ve done. You’ll be able to find out about the wonderful things the people you know have accomplished, bringing about a new-found respect and admiration for them.
It is best if you know yourself more than others do. Treat yourself kindly and be honest with yourself as the years pass, and enjoy knowing the one person who knows you best.
