Hello I’m life coach Peter Winslow. In my previous post we discussed Aristotle’s definition of what he called the Law of Identity, and how critically important it is for you to understand. Why?
The positive changes that can and will come about for you in the years ahead are 100% connected with your focus. So if you want to be extraordinary, you’ve got to be sure to align yourself with your greatest strengths.
And to do that, you MUST know who you truly are at the deepest level—your essential nature and frequency.
As a life coach I know that your success in any area of life is really an “inside job.” And it’s pretty true that whatever you receive in life is a major indicator of who you are. It all comes down to your identity.
For the sake of simplicity your identity can be thought of in two ways: you have what I would call an “inner” identity and an “outer” identity. What’s the difference?
Ask anybody who they are, and they’re going to give you an outer identity. Me? I’m Peter Winslow, I live in Scottsdale Arizona, I work as a life coach, I lead people to success and happiness, I’m American from British extraction, I come from a long line of military commanders, etc.
People may think of this as my identity, but it’s not who I am. These things are not me; they are things about me. They constitute an “outer” identity—things about me—but my inner identity (who I am) is something completely different.
Outer identity is static. It’s like having a static goal, which means that once you have it, you’re done. So, I create a goal to own a new Ferrari. Once I get the Ferrari, my goal is accomplished. I got it; end of story. And then what? Then I go on to the next goal.
That’s an example of a static goal, and the same premise holds true for identity. Your outer identity is static, while your inner identity is dynamic.
In the next post we’ll discuss your ultra-powerful “inner identity” and how it can create more joy, more love, ultimate peace of mind and authentic success in your life.
