Ep.221 | 5 Minute Drill | Protect Yourself From an Identity Crisis

How much has your identity taken a beating? You know, from the…

Mistakes you’ve made…

Stories others have told about you…

Labels people have put on you since childhood (“he’s quiet,” “she’s shy,” “he’s too short”)…

What social media influencers say about people like you…

What your so-called fans and supporters say.

These ALL pose a threat to our identity – the very thing that influences our thoughts, beliefs, and actions. We all need to strengthen the wall around our identity. But how?

In today’s 5 Minute Drill, I dig into the pillar of identity work that isn’t being talked about enough. It’s the pillar that, at the end of the day, is the one that holds up all the others…it’s the one behind your ultimate clarity, confidence, and contribution to this world in whatever roles you play.

If you want to fully protect YOUR identity and have more clarity, confidence, and meaningful contribution in your life, then make sure to lock in to today’s Drill. 

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Understanding the concept of identity and its pivotal role in determining your life’s purpose.
  • The importance of self-discovery and introspection in identifying your life’s mission or calling.
  • The symptoms and triggers of an identity crisis and how it impacts your life’s purpose.
