My guess is that most of us do not know ourselves nearly as well as we think we do. We tend to see ourselves as a feature set, “I am generous, compassionate, driven, creative, impatient…” but the fact of the matter is, what we are is what we think; our personality traits don’t control us, our thoughts do.
Nothing has more power over our destiny at home and in business than our thoughts. We need to go on a hunt to discover what they are and then reinforce what gives us strength and replace what depletes us.This will also have a profound affect on our ability to replace our unwanted habits and enable us to ignite the changes we seek.Some of what we discover will be easy to change but our deep rooted biases and false truths that originated years, sometimes generations before us, can be very challenging to replace.It helps to find yourself a truth coach, which is simply someone that you trust and that has the courage to tell you the kind truth about yourself and even help you navigate your narrative’s origins.
As we collectively continue on this journey inward, the changes we want to see in the world will become more and more accessible.We will emerge beyond the clash with the externally focused mindset and be empowered to drive more and more meaningful change.
