Reading Time: 7 minutes See the difference your Identity creates? So, what Identity are you living into each day? Which Identity creates your beliefs, skills, behaviors, and environment? Let’s give a common example I encounter regularly:
- If you’re Type II diabetic, you probably believe it’s because your parents had it. You may also believe the hype you hear about diet and exercises for diabetics. You may believe you’re destined to be on medication or insulin (beliefs)
- You may not make the time to research the other side of the diabetic condition, which advises you fruits and carbs aren’t the issue, but fat and animal protein actually are. You won’t make time to gain skills for cooking or research, because everywhere you look, the same story persists… watch carbs and sugars (skills)
- You probably have the same behaviors or habits your family had because that’s where most of our stories originate. “I was raised on meat and potatoes and bacon makes everything better!” (behaviors/habits)
- Your environment will reflect all of this, in whatever way your story plays out—for many, it’s having low carb veggies in the house, focusing on “clean protein,” and substituting sugar with toxic fake sweeteners. You may not have basic weights for lifting, bands for stretching, or good shoes for walking (environment)
