Who Are You?

When you were born…

When you were born, you had no ideas, beliefs, habits, or identity.

You were a blank canvas the world had not touched yet.

No one told you what you could or couldn’t do.

No one told you what you should or should not do.

No one told you who you are, who you could be, who you couldn’t be.

There were no fears of doing the “wrong” thing and there was no glory in doing the “right” thing.

You didn’t know about right or wrong.

You were just a container full of the stuff that powers life surrounded by the clay that creates your outside reality.

All you came equipped with was love and instinct.

A container full of love driven by instinct to keep that container alive.

What did the world tell you about yourself? What influence have you had woven into the fabric of your life? What physical manifestations have you created from those ideas?

What have you learned so far?

What are your limitations? What fears dominate your mind?

What is your super power?

What did you end up believing was wrong? What did you end up believing was right?

Who are you? What do they tell you about who you are?

Is it right? Or better yet, does it accurately illustrate the potential that lived inside of you before anyone placed a belief or thought in your mind?

When you were born you had nothing but potential and instinct.

What do you have today?

If you had the power to snap your fingers and form your own idea about who you are and what you’re potential is, what would you come up with?

Who would ___________ be? How do YOU want to see yourself?

Answer those questions unapologetically and with conviction and watch what happens in your life.

Because you do have that power and always will.
