Most of us seek truth through our words but it is not the only way our lives speak, our lives speak through our actions and reactions, our intuitions and instincts, and our feelings. Perhaps these qualities are more profound than our words themselves.
People who are truth seekers are searching for their realities. They have a deep seated desire to know, to understand and reflect and feel what is accurate.
Many of us are in denial when our truth are revealed. We resist it. We become passive. We avoid it-but avoiding it doesn’t stop the truth from being true.
The kind of truth seekers we are speaking here about- are people who go after truth as if their life depended on it. They have to find it. It is not something that they seek once in awhile. No, for them it is a way of life -it is a constant searching. They are always tuning in, self reflecting, rediscovering their realities because they know they will never find themselves until they face their truth.
Shakespeare stated and I quote,”The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be the fool” the natural tendency of humans is not to face themselves and not to see who they really are- but knowing who you are gives you the strength to manage your weakness.
People who lead from within are successful because they know themselves inside and out. Their darkness and light, their strength and weaknesses and they build from that knowledge because they have the courage to face whatever they find.
How you seek truth is worth exploring. How you gather and listen to information about yourself is the utmost important. Surround yourself with truth tellers and be honest with yourself- Ask instead of tell. Learn instead of teach. Listen instead of speak.
Lead From Within: Truth seekers make better leaders, parents, presidents, partners. because as seekers they have the desire to see truth even if it is going to be uncomfortable or make them deal with some “out of the comfort zone” things. If you are a truth seeker you make truth your compass in life.
