Your Identity Makes All the Difference – Part 4

I’m life coach Peter Winslow. In our last post we discovered that who we think we are and who we really are can be two different things. One of them is “static” (our outer identity, the perceived self) and the other, “dynamic” (our inner identity, or true self.)

I said that as I see it, the inner identity (one’s true self) is comprised of three things. And when you realize this fully and completely, your health, wealth and happiness will increase automatically, and exponentially.

What are the three essences of the true self? You will recognize them as: Love, Joy, and Peace of Mind.

These priceless states of being are not things you can earn or purchase; they are components of who you are, the deepest essence of your true self.

As a life coach, I’ve been approached by countless clients who ask for my help in finding love, improving their relationships, and manifesting wealth—which most people believe will give them great joy and lasting inner peace.

Think about this: nearly everyone spends their entire lives going into the world and trying to find these things. Most people spend their lives searching for love, joy, and peace, thinking of them as rare treasures that the world will give them if only they are good enough or lucky enough to win the game.

This belief can become an obsession, often bordering on madness. More importantly, it’s not true. The everlasting inner assets of your true self are rife and abundant when you realize the truth about yourself.

The fact remains that until you feel the love within you, you will not attract and hold love from the world around you. This is because love is an internal state of being, not an external conquest. The same holds true for joy and peace of mind. Realizing them for what they are is the beginning of true health, real wealth and abiding abundance.

Your Identity Makes All the Difference – Part 3

I’m life coach Peter Winslow. In my last post we discussed the concept of an “inner” and an “outer” identity. We learned that outer identities are “static” meaning they identify things about us, rather than revealing who we are at our core.

It’s similar to having a static goal, like acquiring a Ferrari. Once you have it, you’re through; you move on to the next goal. This is in contrast to a dynamic goal, which continues to evolve. A dynamic goal keeps growing and giving, and there’s no point at which it ends.

A dynamic goal might look like this: I see thousands and thousands of people being influenced by my work. It lifts more and more people out of mediocrity and puts them into feeling really good about themselves, time and again.

The concept also applies to our identities. Outer identity is static: I’m Peter Winslow; I’m a life coach; I’m American from British extraction; I live in Scottsdale Arizona, etc.

Yet my inner identity is comprised of who I am at my core; a dynamic identity that keeps on growing and giving. And what the inner identity is, is this: my true essence. It’s what I’m really made of.

As I see it, one’s true essence is comprised of three things. When you realize these three fully and completely, your health, wealth and happiness increase automatically, and exponentially.

To live a happy, healthy, prosperous life you must identify with the three components of your inner identity. It is then that all things are added unto you. Nothing and no one will stop you; no chain of events can hinder your advance.

In our next meeting we will discover what the three are and how to apply them.

Your Identity Makes All the Difference – Part 2

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.

Your Identity Makes all the Difference – Part 1

Hello, I’m life coach Peter Winslow. Today I have a powerful message that can really change your life. This message is about your identity, but it goes well beyond who you “think” you are.

Why does identity matter? It’s very important for you to know your authentic identity—who deep inside you truly are—if you expect to experience the things in life that you most want.

It’s true that, across the board, most successful and happy people know who they are and what  their life purpose is. Think about that. They have answers to the eternal questions: who am I  and what am I doing here? 

In this series of posts I’m going to make it very simple for you too, so you can get what it is you’d like to have more quickly, more effectively and more efficiently. As a life coach, that’s  what I do.

We’ll begin with what has often been called the “Law of Identity.” You might believe that sounds a lot like the Law of Emergence, or Law of Attraction, or any of the other “New Age” laws being bandied about out there, but no. The Law of Identity was first coined by the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle thousands of years ago. He defined “identity” as this: Any entity that exists must have an identity, because to exist with no identity is to be nothing. An entity cannot be nothing, so by definition it must have an identity.

Another philosopher—one from the modern age—took that awareness to a whole new level. He said that in life, we don’t get what we want, we get what we are. And as we shall see, truer words have never been spoken.

Who are you, and what is your authentic identity? In the next installment I’m going to provide some powerful answers that I know will change your life forever, and for the better.
