Introduction: Who Am I?

From your employment, hobbies, and down to the attitude you choose when interacting with other people, there are so many facets that make up your self-concept.

But in actuality, you may only have a partial idea of the real you and the enormous creative power that resides within you.

Exercise

Take a few minutes and ask yourself the question: who am I?

  1. Stick to brief points that you would use to describe yourself
  2. List down your answers
  3. Try to include as much as you can
  4. Pause after 5 minutes and take a look at what you wrote

Reflect

Once you have your list of self-identifiers, reflect on the following questions:

  1. What were the first few things you listed down?
  2. How would you describe your self-identifiers?
    1. Were they related to your job or your relationships?
    2. Did they describe your general attitude or personality?
    3. Was it a mix of both your demographics and personality? Did you list more identifiers in one more than the other?
  3. How do you feel about your descriptions?
    1. Were they negative or positive?
    2. Would you say that they accurately describe you now? Or how you aspire to be?
    3. Do you feel like something is missing in the list?

It’s not easy as it seems to find the answer to the titular question because, from the time you were born, the people around you have been feeding you their opinions, their advice, their ideas about who you are, and the direction you should go in.

All of that external influence informs your idea of what is possible, which then determines the choices you make based on the limit you have set for yourself.

If you think you are too shy, then you do not choose to become a performer even if you have the talent. If you think you can’t study, then you do not pursue the education you want even if you have the potential.

But this is a very limited way of thinking. No matter who you are, no matter what obstacles and limitations you face at this moment, you can change your life and your state of mind completely.

You can decide who you want to become.

 

In this course, you will learn to build a more complete perception of yourself and your capabilities so that you can achieve true fulfillment.
