We try to work on ourselves all the time. Trying to improve our knowledge. Trying to make our marriages better. And trying to make ourselves better leaders or employees.
We work, work, work on ourselves… Yet, the sad reality is, so few of us know who we truly are.
We work on the person we believe we are. We fail to work on the person we are.
This trying to improve upon the mythical image we have of ourselves often drives us to depression, frustration, and regret. We work on something that we are not or are not yet and we struggle to make sense of why things aren’t working.
Our methods for improving ourselves aren’t working because we’re not working on the right person. We’re working on something that’s not real or true.
