If you were to sum yourself, or your business up in three words what words would you choose? Discovering our identity, and purpose in life are the two most commonly searched for answers; by everyone. These are what I call, the big two, and they are:
1. Who do you say you I am?
2. What am I here to do?
Whether these particular phrases strike a chord with you, or not. I guarantee that at some point in your life, you have asked yourself these two questions on one or more occasions; and in some shape or form. Directly, or indirectly. Knowing the answer to both is not a simple flick of a switch, but a journey made up of adventure, trials and tribulations. This is journey of a life time.
So here’s a few thoughts to get us thinking along the way:
- The more we understand who we are. The greater peace, happiness, and success we will have in every area of life.
- What do you stand for? What are your strengths? Those things your good at? What do you value, and believe in? Everyone believes in something. Positive, or negative.
Before we build anything in life, it’s vital that we know who we are; more importantly that we believe in who we are. Failure to do so results in comparison, disappointment, and the lose of heart – Not a good combination.
“The value of identity of course is that so often with it comes purpose.” Richard R Grant.
