I love hanging out with leaders. Great leaders know who they are and exactly why they are on this planet. They also know who they are not.
I think knowing who your not is probably more important than knowing who you are. I was in a meeting 0ne time when someone threw out an amazing idea. I was thinking that you would have to be stupid to pass this idea up. The person running the meeting affirmed the awesomeness of the idea but said, although that is a great idea, it is not who we are.
I wonder how life would be different if people had a clearer grasp on their identity.
It may be worth your while to make a list of who you are and who you are not. Then try to live by those convictions. I think your ability to make a decision will be so much more clear.
What if your family sat down and decided what they were all about? Would that change where you went on vacation?
There is a certain confidence and power that comes from knowing who you are and who you are not.Share
