What is your Identity?
Your identity is developed out of your habits. It is very likely that some habits led you down a path that may no longer serve you. When put together, you can see that habits are the path to changing your identity. The most practical way to change who you are is to change what you do, and repeat that action, improving how you do it along the way. As you learn about yourself, and make adjustments along the way, your experiences begin to change your self image and identity. As habits that you repeat become engrained by repetition, these experiences then shape your identity. This is the path to becoming yourself, and hopefully you have chosen carefully the direction that goes towards your best self.
Each step on the path can be examined in the context of what really matters most to you. Everything is created twice: first in your mind and then in reality. Can you begin to create your future in your mind and Begin with the End in Mind? By keeping your identity and your destiny or goal clearly in mind, this will help you decide your actions are each day of your life. Each time we are closing the gap between who we are capable of being and who we are actually being
The first step is not what goals you want to work on or how you plan to go about doing it. The first step to long term meaningful changes is to know who you or and who/what you want to be. Otherwise, you may start out on a path that is not really in line with who you are, or who you want to be.
By bringing Awareness to your habits and beliefs about yourself, you will have the power to shape your identity. How you think (or other’s think) of your current identity can change, based on your choices or habits. Therefore knowing your habits will help you see who you are today and help you become the type of person you wish to be. You can choose the identity you want to embody by bringing awareness to the habits of today. Every choice and action starts to outline the type of person you wish to become, as your identity emerges out of your habits. They can also change and reinforce your beliefs about yourself. Becoming the best version of yourself requires you to challenge and fortify your beliefs about yourself, to become the person you want to be. The more you embody this identity the more you will achieve the goals and outcomes that are important to you.
