What is self-discovery?

Self-discovery is the act of learning more about yourself and who you are, namely the process of achieving self-knowledge.

Why is self-discovery important?

Self-confidence comes with being more in touch with yourself and realizing what you really desire. When you live for yourself, it is more convenient for you to find the space to take care of yourself, unlike when you live for others, it will be harder for you to find the space to tend to yourself. 

Through self-discovery, you will find a deeper connection between who you are and who you want to be. In fact, when you don’t know what you really want, it will cause you to wander in your own dream. When you don’t know who you really are, you will face doing the wrong thing and you will give it up one day.

In order to assist students who still wonder about what they really want and who they are, Sala has provided orientation tests called MBIT and Holland intending to help students identify themself. 

Briefly, self-discovery is very significant for you to understand your goal and purpose in your life. 

How do you discover yourself?

There are 6 steps to discovering your true self:

  1. Be quiet.
  2. Realize who you truly are, not who you want to be.
  3. Find what you are good at and not good at.
  4. Find what you are passionate about.
  5. Ask for feedback (ask others what they think about you).
  6. Try new things when doing the old things isn't your favorite one.
