You And Your Identity

Looking back at the last post I hope you took some time to relax and put yourself in that safe and curious state. And found some answers to that question that people have been asking themselves for many years “Who am I?”

To assist you in defining yourself, remember that identity is simply what distinguishes you from everyone else. I would like to share a couple of exercises I feel you will enjoy and benefit from.

  1. If you were to do a Google search under your name, what would it say? Would three words just about cover it, or would your epic narrative consume page after page?

Right now, write down the definition you would find if you were to Google your name. Title it “My Google Definition” Take a moment, and let your answers sink in. When you’re ready, move to the next exercise.

  1. If you were to create an ID card that would represent who you truly are, what would be on it – and what would you leave off?
  • Would it include a picture or not?
  • Would you list your vital statistics?
  • Your physical description?
  • Your accomplishments?
  • Your emotions?
  • Your beliefs?
  • Your affiliations?
  • Your aspirations?
  • Your motto?
  • Your abilities?

Take a moment to describe what would be on this identity card and what would be left off in order to show someone who you really are.

Now, take a look at what you’ve written down, at the descriptions you have of your identity – in essence, the story of your life. How do you feel about it? I hope you’re taking a moment right now to really appreciate who you are, to feel the deep emotion that comes with recognition. If you’re noticing that your identity creates pain, know that whatever you call your identity is simply what you’ve decided to identify with, and that in a moment you could change it all. YOU HAVE THE POWER WITHIN YOU RIGHT NOW. In fact, after looking at how identities evolve, you’ll have an opportunity to expand your identity, and therefore your entire life.

In tomorrow’s post we will explore the evolution of an identity, and changing your identity.

Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Today is a very important milestone Blog #300. Thank you dear followers I hope you are enjoying the posts and they give you some insight to different topics that may be of concern to your personal and business life. Please follow me on Twitter Jerry Scicchitano @PartTimeJerry.

In business planning it’s understood that you can’t determine where you want to go until you know where you are. This is why in yesterday’s post I asked you to evaluate your life up to this point. This exercise will help as you develop your  Life Mission or Vision Statement.

Like a compass, or GPS, it points you the direction and significance ye all yearn for. Your Mission or Vision Statement will help you stand upright when you are knocked off balance and forced in a different direction.

While discovering your life’s purpose you then must define what you will do. If you are like most people you want something that arouses a passionate desire for excellence the thing you are able to do because of interest, gifting, and capability.

You may not be able to describe it like a specific job description but rather by the type of work you would want to do with a high level of enthusiasm.

Look at these questions to help give you some clues to what your calling may be:

  • What are your natural abilities?
  • What are your unique gifts?
  • What are you trained to do?
  • Do you consider your training valuable for your interests?
  • What types of tasks interest you? Developing, planning, teaching, mentoring organizing…
  • What types of jobs or work interest you – Teaching, accounting, engineering, selling

In the next few days give yourself some time to discover yourself and develop your Life Mission or Vision Statement.

  • My Life Purpose: _____________________________________________

____________________________________________________________

  • My Calling: ___________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________________

  • MyVision:__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  • My Mission: ________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________

 

Think about how you would describe you picture of your perfect life? Next post we will take a look at how you may want to go about it.

Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry
