I read a post this morning from last week on T. Harv Eker’s blog site. He is the author of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. If you have not read it, you need to!
I really liked what his post had to say because it is WHY I am doing this every day. I am developing the success habits that will help to shape me into the person that I want to be.
His blog went like this:
Do you know who you are?
“Of course I know who I am,” a lot of people will respond. Then they’ll rattle off a list that includes their name, where they’re from, their occupation, their ethnicity; the list can go on and on. Yet, we are more than our title, heritage or role, yes or yes?
Most of us have a pretty good idea about the sum experience of our lives; what we’ve been taught, how we’ve come along so far, and how we generally tend to operate. Maybe a better question than “Who are you” is, “Who do you want to be?”
We are always being who we are—whatever that is at the moment—but at the same time we’re also always becoming. It’s easy to say, “I am (fill in the blank),” and we can think this with complete conviction. However, just because someone says they are—for example—a good friend doesn’t necessarily make it so. But who wouldn’t want to become a better friend?
