Who are you, really?

Who are you? What’s the story that you tend to tell others about you?

Although we might think we’re a certain type of person, the more we advance in our career and lives, and witness the transient nature of life, the more we realize that our true nature is constantly undefined.

As human beings, we like to define things. We like to spot patterns and tell stories. We put labels on things and keep them in boxes. That’s especially true when it comes to ourselves and our brands. We like to think of ourselves as a certain type of person. We may not be that person or may wish we weren’t that kind of person, but we still have decided to think of ourselves as a certain kind of person.

We do it with our bodies too. Slim, husky, loose. But of course, the body is always changing. We see it and we see it when we look in the mirror. On a scientific level, the cells in the body are constantly changing. In fact, the entire body changes over the matter of a few months or so.

Our emotions change. We may have a tendency towards a particular type of mood or emotion, but no emotion is there all the time. Although it may feel like that sometimes, emotions come and go as well. We can feel that emotion and change that emotion, but we can’t be that emotion.

Likewise with our thoughts, they come and go as well. We may have storylines we frequently think about that seem very rigid and permanent, but if you examine it closely you realize they’re just a collection of thoughts, repeated over and over again.

And that’s all it comes down to: consistency and time.

As you look at these changing conditions, realize that there is nothing that is permanent. There’s nothing that is stable and there is nothing that can be defined, and that’s freedom.

Think about what’s consistent in your life, and build your new story around it.
