Who Are You?

Man is buffeted by circumstances so long as he believes himself to be the creature of outside conditions, but when he realizes he is a creative power, and that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being out of which circumstances grow, he then becomes the rightful master of himself. -- James Allen
~~~~~~

Who are you? Without the identities others have projected upon you, the answer might surprise you.

Since we were children, we've been defined by others in the context of our surroundings, or our familial group. As a child perhaps you were the smart one, or the pretty one. Maybe you were considered the funny one or the peacemaker, or even the troublemaker.

Although we've all had labels placed upon us at an early age in the very small universe of our families and schoolmates, we are much more than the identity we had at the age of eight, or eighteen. We are not what others think of us nor are we limited to the meager range of possibility that such a restrictive label provides.

As we move through our lives we get to define ourselves; each choice we make is a chance to honor our authenticity and discover the depth of our untapped resources. When we act in accordance with our deepest beliefs and desires we enable our unique abilities to develop and thrive.

Discovering who you really are will add to the fullness of your life and your work. Think about it.

Growth is change.
Change can be uncomfortable.
Grow anyway.
