Thoughts from the Pond

~ Identity ~
Everyone has their weaknesses and their strengths... Let yourself be defined by your strengths and not your weaknesses.



The most important idea or belief you will ever have is your idea or belief about who you are. This one key belief will determine what goals you pursue, how you act and react, and what your destiny will be. Change this belief and you change your destiny.



Be a strong light reflecting the good of your strengths, and not a victim of your weaknesses.



Once you define who you are then decision making becomes much easier. When you know what your values and beliefs are, and why they are that way, then the right decision becomes both visible and attainable...and over time decisions become automatic.



If you don't stand up for your beliefs,
you can't expect anyone else to either.



Reflect the good light of others until you can become a shining light of your own.



Believe in your values, and value your beliefs. Believe in your capabilities, and value who you are.



You will act out what you believe your identity is. If you want to make a lasting change, change your concept of who you are.



Changes that are made which do not involve a belief or identity change usually don't last because we tend to gravitate or float back to what or who we believe we are.



It doesn't matter from what you were born or what you were born into or what your life is now... what does matter is where you are going.



If you don't create the identity you want for you, someone else will create an identity for you that they want.



Bring forth the identity of the person you want to be.



The only thing that separates you from who you are now and who you want to be is action, patience, and persistence.



Listen to who you want to be, not to who you were!
