I once heard a guy ask another about a historical figure – it doesn’t matter which historical figure because the principle is still the same – and he asked the other guy who the figure was…
The guy responded as expected listing off all types of historical facts about former icon, but in response to each fact, the first guy kept responding, “but WHO is he though? You are telling me all of these facts, but not telling me WHO he is…”
Listening to that exchange, my thoughts were:
Dude! You’re not making any sense by constantly asking “who!” It’s NOT THAT COMPLICATED.
It seemed like he was trying to be “deep” when it was so much simpler than he was making it. I guess he was looking for the other guy to somehow word the answer in some overly eloquent manner that would capture the deeper essence of the idea that this historical icon personified.
It’s not that serious though…
Who you are really is what you do and how you think of yourself… As the eternal, divine wisdom states, “…as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” (Bible, Proverbs 23:7)
What is important, though, for anything that YOU want to pursue in your life, is YOUR answer to that question: Who are you?
If you don’t know what you like, what you don’t like, your own standards, your own morals, your passion, your skills, your talents, your beliefs, etc., then you are not prepared to use them for your pursuits.
Learn who YOU are!
It is essential for you to know who you are in order to take yourself to any level or place in your life. You must be confident in that person that you are, and only then by your excitement and full acceptance of who YOU are can you expect the rest of the world to jump on and support you in your life’s pursuits.
The first step in determining who and where you want to be, is first understanding who and where you are now. Once this is determined, you can build upon and make adjustments to that, to get to where you are going! Do this, and you shall begin to build “a life worth fighting for!™”
