How to Create an Identity True to Who You Are

Updated: Mar 11, 2020

Have you ever felt like you have limited say over your daily experiences and/or life’s overall trajectory? Our identity directly influences the quality of our relationships and our lives, as well as the measure of success (or lack thereof) we will experience in pursuing our goals. In today’s episode, we’re talking about how to identify and breathe new life into our beliefs about ourselves and our lives in order to create identities that align with the type of women we aspire to be, the impact we hope to have, and the goals we desire to achieve.

In today's episode, you'll hear:

  • [0:01] How our identity plays a key role in our daily lives in achieving our goals, whether related to fitness and health or another area of our life.

  • [1:20] A time when Samantha felt less than her husband, and how our beliefs about ourselves and our identity created a filter for everyday life.

  • [9:35] Following up with the question given from the last episode, “What do you do you?”

  • [13:00] Four words that we can eliminate from our vocabulary in response to the question, “What do you do?”

  • [16:51] Six thoughts, or excuses, that are creating self-sabotage and distractions in our everyday life.

  • [22:49] Samantha’s time in China and how our vocabulary around our identity is not etched in stone, but is more like a dry erase board that can be modified and re-written to fit our truest self.
