Know yourself, and you will never be lost

In this segment of A Minute with John Maxwell, John talks about the power of knowing your own values and what makes you who you are. Once you articulate this, you have a compass to guide you in where to go, what to do, and who to meet. I see getting to know yourself as an iterative process, and the first step is to pay attention to what makes you happy or unhappy and why. I think that many people struggle with knowing themselves because they are surrounded by others who inhibit self-discovery and who try to dictate who they should be. I will leave you with a quote from Friedrich Nietzsche: "He who has a why can endure any how."
