Create your personal identity statement
Do you struggle to know who you really are? Are you looking for your purpose in life?
Let’s take a minute & talk about your personal identity statement
“I am loved. I am worthy. I am valuable. Lord, I am made in Your image. My value is not based on my accomplishments.
I am a leader. I am a protector. I am a defender. I am a sheepdog, used by The Shepard to protect His flock.
I love inspiring others. I love encouraging, and uplifting, and connecting.
I am an author. I am an influencer. I am used by God to help others meet Him and KNOW that they are loved by the Creator of the universe.
I am willing to be bold, violent, and aggressive to protect others, but God has given me the wisdom to understand that love and empathy can often inspire permanent change.
I’m thankful for hardships, and I’m grateful for afflictions because they’ve given me the ability to connect with the hopeless.
I am an inspiration. I am an example. I am exactly what God created me to be!” – M. Curtis McCoy
All of us have a personal identity statement, but for most people, it’s not something they intentionally created. We often take our personal identity from what we’re told by friends, significant others, our parents, coworkers, etc. Identity statements are the things you say & believe about yourself. Most of us say them often, but we don’t realize it.
We say things like, “I’m always late. I’m so unorganized. I’m too fat/skinny. I’m ugly.” We become more of what we tell ourselves on a daily basis.
For years, I taught my employees to write down positive things that they can hang beside their bathroom mirror, to tell themselves each morning. This is an incredibly beneficial practice, and a great way to build self-confidence & establish personal identity. I recently attended a men’s retreat with 40 incredible guys from my church where I learned a lot about how to create a biblically sound personal identity statement & I’d love to share how you can create your own!
