Hello everyone, this is Gary Halbert. Today I want to delve into something that many of us rarely stop to think about – who we truly are. Not in terms of what we do, or what our roles are in the world, but who we are at our core.
“Who are you?”
That’s a profound question, isn’t it? Many of us tend to define ourselves by what we do. We say we’re entrepreneurs, parents, engineers, writers, or teachers. But those are just labels, they’re what we do, not who we are.
The question “Who are you?” calls for us to go deeper, to move beyond these surface labels and delve into our true identity. It’s a question that strikes at the core of our being and forces us to introspect.
I’m a copywriter, but that’s not who I am. That’s my profession. So who am I?
I am a man who strives to inspire others. I am a learner, forever in pursuit of knowledge. I am a believer in the potential of the human spirit. I am a relentless pursuer of truth and authenticity. This is how I define myself, and these core principles guide my actions, my decisions, and my relationships.
But why is this important? Why should we think about who we are?
Our identity, our self-perception, influences every aspect of our lives. It affects our goals, our actions, and our responses to life’s challenges. When we define ourselves in terms of our core principles and values, we gain a sense of purpose and direction. We become more resilient, more motivated, and more content.
More importantly, defining who we are helps us stay true to ourselves. In a world that often tries to mold us into something we’re not, knowing who we are provides a solid foundation that keeps us grounded.
So, who are you?
I encourage you to take some time to ponder this question. Don’t rush to find an answer, and don’t limit yourself to what you do. Go deeper.
Consider your values, your passions, your strengths, your quirks, your beliefs. What drives you? What makes you tick? What makes you, you?
Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. This is a personal exploration, a journey to the core of your being. It’s about uncovering the essence of who you are, beyond the roles, the labels, and the expectations.
So, take a step back, take a deep breath, and ask yourself, “Who am I?” The answer might just surprise you.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and insights on this one.
Here’s to discovering ourselves,
