Isn’t self-expression really self-direction? How you think, how you move, how you motivate yourself. …
Positive self-direction says, “I know who I am and I know where I want to go. I’m accumulating knowledge and experiences and feelings and philosophies that will help prepare me for opportunities that I know will show up without notice or any help on my part.”
Because you know where you want to go, you have already been working on the parts of your personality that will make you better.
