Intentional Identity - Who Were You Meant to Be?

intentional identity success Jun 09, 2023

When it comes to success, one of the key components is a clear definition of what success looks like to you.  Without defining what success is to you, you will never know if you have reached it, or whether you are even on the right track.  And, while success is more than understanding who you are, this understanding is the foundation.

Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing my methodology for creating an Intentional Identity.  An Intentional Identity is the clear, unapologetic view of yourself, and understanding of who you are.  It's living authentically, understanding where you've come from, where you are today and where you want to be in the future.

Successful people don't just fly by the seat of their pants and let the winds blow them where they may.  They take intentional steps to live out the life they have designed and to be the person they have decided to be.

When you think about success, in the context of your own identity, a lot of people don't feel successful because what they are spending their time on is incongruent with who they are at their core identity.

I firmly believe that the foundation for your path to success is defining your intentional identity and using it to drive your future vision and actions.  But you should know, this process is not for the faint of heart.  It involves some reliving of the past, dreaming of the future, and soul searching in between.

If you're game, spend some time this week considering whether or not your daily activities are aligned with who you want to be.  Make note of what is working and what seems a little off.  Next week we will begin the first of five exercises to explore this concept further and create your own Intentional Identity.
