Lose Yourself To Find Yourself

by admin on

I felt like complete crap at the gym this morning.

I was pushing myself physically, but I just couldn’t focus no matter how hard I tried.

I kept on thinking about an issue I had experienced in my business.

I could not get it out of my mind.

I got to the point where my workout was almost ruined.

Then all of a sudden a light went off in my head.

It just hit me that the entire time I was upset

was because I created an identity of being a business owner,

and all I could think about was work along with its challenges.

I then realized that if I’m not my business,

then who am I?

At that moment, I stopped my workout.

I looked straight into the mirror in front of me and

I saw myself standing there with a confused and concerned look on my face.

I started questioning myself and asking over and over again…

Who am I?

Who am I?

Who am I?

I knew there had to be more…

As I stared at my reflection,

I saw my identity as my youth and my body.

But then I realized that decades from now my physical appearance

will deteriorate no matter how much I “take care of myself”.

Right then and there,

I came to the conclusion that nothing on the external level defines who I truly am.

I’m a lot deeper than what I see on the surface.

What if there is something bigger that,

beyond what my eyes can see.

If I could just tap into that,

I would not have to live up to a false identity.

I would not have to constantly feel like something was missing,

or feel that something outside of me must complete me.

None of that is really Who “I AM”.

When we create an identity for ourselves, whether it’s an entrepreneur, parent or spouse

we create an expectation that we must live up to.

The moment we lose money, a relationship or our youth,

we lose ourselves.

When our reality doesn’t match the expectations of our identity,

we experience pain.

That is why children are always smiling and full of life,

they have not yet formed an identity that limits them and dictates their happiness.

What if you realized that who you think you are,

is nowhere near the immense power you that have within.

Like Marianne said,

“Our deepest fear is not that we are weak. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

We are unstoppable and limitless.

Our true essence goes beyond what we experience on an external level.

We are not our body, our bank account or

anything that defines us on the outside.

The only thing that matters is what lies within.

All of this is pretty deep, I know.

But if you feel a shift a right now,

then you are getting aligned to the truth

of who you truly are.

The problem is that we allow our external identities to tell us who we are.

Whether that be our age, occupation, or status in life.

Those things are in no way an accurate

reflection of who we REALLY are.

That is the beauty of the human experience,

and why we are on this journey called life.

To go through all the ups and downs,

and discover our true essence in the deepest way possible.

Pain often reminds us of the truth.

That is why you must lose yourself to find yourself.

Life tends to humble us.

It brings us back to what’s important by stripping away the layers of who we are Not.

When you understand who you truly are,

you realize it can Never be taken from you.

You become FREE.
