Do you know who you really are? It is important to have and go after your hopes and dreams, but it is really important to always know who you are. When I first became a writer, I took the time to discover what I love about the art of writing and discovered my passion for it. During this time, I discovered my gifting in this area and I knew that this is a part of who I am. Then I put myself out there. Even when my work was shredded by some, I knew who I was and held onto my dream. My journey is just beginning to gain momentum, but I would not have been here if I didn’t understand from the start who I am. I would have given in to the critics and quit before I gave myself a chance.
Once you know who you are, no one can tell you any different. If you are about to pursue your passion and fulfill your life’s purpose, have a clear understanding of who you are first. Life happens, change happens and detractors are waiting to stop you. Be strong in your belief of who you truly are.
Say this statement with conviction. My name is ________________ and I am _________________________. Don’t fill in the blank with a job description. Fill it in with your dream career, business or wherever your passion leads you that will bring the income you seek. Never forget it. Who cares if someone else doesn’t see it or doesn’t believe it? You have to see it and believe it. Know Who You Are! As long as you have that on you mind, no one can stop you from your own realization!
Have a great day!
