Well ,what do we mean by yourself,or rather oneself,myself,or any way one puts the term in whatever way they like ,but the most important is to have a keen insight,about the term and what it means.Firstly yourself means myself or me,the way you put it i.e the entity of one person.The word “yourself” is very important as knowing you would lead you towards facing the world in a better way ,to figure out a way in times of crisis moments in life and ultimately winning the race of life with the torch of success in your hand.There is a tremendous power that lies within the word “yourself”.Hence identifying the power within would determine whether you would successfull partially successfull or a failure in life .Now the question arises “how do you know about yourself ?”or how do you know what you are what power lies within you or what you are made of.There are some ways which I know about regarding this topic and I would like to share the same with you guys. First of all always to be optimistic about yourself.Thinking negative would result only your downfall.Next is to accept yourself above everyone else.Always think that you are the topper the one and only one who does things best out of everyone.Be selfish about thinking about yourself in this particular matter. Now it is the time to identify the areas of strength and ares of weaknesses as it also a part about knowing about yourself.The strengths are with respect to your personality ,in your activities ,your skills.It might be that you are not good at academics but good at drawing,writing,,in extempore speech or if you go beyond the boundaries of home then it may go to the arenas of playing basketball,or football,cricket,whatever.It might be that you are not good at any of these which can be quite natural but good at cooking ,at story teling ,or expert at weaving,then these are surely your areas of strength. It has to be remembered that not being god at academics does not matter as knowing your areas of strength will make you reach the apex of your journey up the mountain of life .Hence we all should remember that no talent goes wasted. We should remember that no one is perfect and that perfect is just a mere word.Moving on with what you do is most essential.Now it should be noted that trying hand at the things we feel we are able to do well is an essential step towards knowing the areas of strengths. Trying to do meditation helps in building up concentration that helps towards making a firm step without pondering about your decision towards the strengths .While knowing about oneself one must connect to his core as it makes him realise what he really is.To improve about this insight gathering matter it is important that others are taken as mirrors to judge oneself.This is tremendously useful.The last but not the least is to practice what you think you know about yourself doing the best as fine tuning and sharpening the skills you have make you an expert in the field you are practicing in. Now coming to the part about the weaknesses.when we see we are not being able to do good in some type of activities then this surely means that we are not good at that at that.This can only be improved by practicing,or else if not improved then to leave it in search of some better pursuits.Try to rectify your mistakes as it will help u know better about yourself and remove the flaws in your nature.The mistakes are to be rectified withut getting disheartsened.This would eventually reult into a sure shot success in days to come. So go ahead ,enjoy your life and know yourself as it would help you to live better and take out the essence of life.Swami Vivekananda said “Arise awake and stop not till the goal is reached “.I would like to conclude by saying “..... stop not till you discover yourself”.

Yourself is found from others. Others are you own reflection of what you are. They have treated you that way you act, the way you talk, the way you treat them. So starting today, your behavior is a true reaction of those who are around you more particularly your family members. Believe me for that is true.

@DanciaKS You got a philosopher. Me I got a good poet who wrote about Invictus. Are you aware of this poem :"Invictus"? There is a great line that says about the independency of an individual. He won't let other control him. He is brave enough not to permit others to mold him. Instead he said, "I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my sou". Do you get it?
