You Are Who You Are And That’s Who You Are.
One Navajo Native American saying is: Walk in harmony in the universe by being aware of who you are.
This saying is not only incredibly beautiful, but also extremely important. It implies that you must first figure out who you are and then you must accept who you are, in order to live in peace and harmony with the universe.
How do you go about defining who you are? In my experience, many people define themselves in terms of who they are not, rather than in terms of who they are. They focus on their weaknesses and the things they don’t have or haven’t accomplished, rather than on their strengths and the things they do have or have accomplished. You would be much better served if you would define yourself in terms of who you are, instead of who you are not. If you spend all your energy focusing on who you are not, then you will beat yourself down and have little energy or enthusiasm left over to focus on achieving your goals.
Who you are is your core essence. When all else is stripped away, what is left over? Think for a few minutes and then write about the best way to define yourself.
Your core essence is the foundation upon which you are going to build everything else in your life.
My next post asks the flip-side of yesterday’s question “who are you not?”
As you meditate upon this thought, ask yourself the following questions:
- Ask yourself: Who am I?
- Ask yourself: What makes me unique?
