Your life is a continuous process of creating, becoming, choosing, and changing.
Creativity is not just a term to describe writers, artists or musicians. Each and every one of us has been given this innate ability to create and re-create ourselves, not just initially, but as a continuous process throughout life.
This self organizing and creative ability is what gives us enormous freedom of self expression. This freedom allows you to choose any form or shape, and create meaning out of endless possibilities.
Over time, you have used this innate creative freedom of choice to develop habits, create beliefs, behaviors and routines, which shape your unique identity and way of being. The person you are today is an expression of who you decided to become.
The image you hold about yourself becomes your identity. It is shaped by your past experiences, values, beliefs, capabilities, and your sense of purpose. It is from this unique point of (self) reference that you see and interpret the world around you.
Most people live their lives consistent with their self image, and will do anything to live and validate their lives within the self-imposed boundaries they have created.
You cannot change any behavior, habit or belief that is holding you back without changing the image you hold about yourself. Every positive act of change in your life is always fostered by a change in self-perception. So unless you're committed to deal with all the stuff inside of you that is running your life, nothing you say or do will create long lasting results.
What is standing between you and your goals, dreams and aspirations are not circumstances, opportunities or luck, but the assumptions you have made about yourself.
Think for a moment about an assumption you hold about your self that is preventing you from getting what you really want, and ask yourself: "Who would I be without that thought?"
It is in the answer to this fundamental question that you will start to discover that you might be more of who you are by becoming something different!
Have a great week.
