Finding Yourself – Is Unlike Other Journeys

“Unlike many other journeys, when it comes to finding self and matters of the heart you’ll swiftly find yourself lost if you follow someone else’s path.” – Rasheed Ogunlaru, Coach – Speaker – Author


Finding yourself is unlike other journeys. Other journeys are external pursuits. You go here and you go there. The journey of finding yourself may appear like that at the beginning but it is actually an inner journey – home to the heart.

Interestingly, the journey of finding yourself – for some – involves lots of time, energy, pursuits, paths, reading and so on, but these are all just pointers. It may involve listening to many other people’s voices but all the wise ones will point you to yourself … to your ‘self.’

The quote at the top this page is a gentle reminder that your life is not a carbon copy of someone else. While there may be many books to read yours is unique and incomplete for you are living it, walking it, writing it. Embrace this wonderful journey. Learn to appreciate the highs and lows, the triumphs and the tears – and the learning that is present in every day – in every situation.

Learn to listen to your own voice, to follow your own foot steps to trust your own self – to get to know your own inner wisdom and life lessons. The only difference that the so-called wise people perhaps have over you is that they listen to life, they embrace it, they flow with it, they learn to cherish and embrace it and see that it all is a great teacher. They know that you cannot take that bit and leave the other – they know that there is no ‘this’ without ‘that’.

Enjoy your journey.
