Recently, I posed the question, “who are you?” to my staff. We are in the year of growth, so in order to Grow, you need to know who you are. Jesus not only identified who He was, but He was continually provoking people to understand who He was.
The power in knowing who you are drives your behavior. So, when you declare, “Here’s who I am!” …then you start to think that way and then you act on that belief of who you are. It may seem obvious, but do you really know who you are?
Here are four ways to get to know the real you…
- The key to know who you are is knowing WHO He is.(Matthew 16:13-18)
- When you know who you are you can know what you can do. (Philippians 3:3-11)
- When who you are is aligned with who He is, you will be unstoppable. (John 15:1-2, 4-5, 7-8)
- When you know who you are, it will help you know the Who’s you are to be aligned with.
“Who you choose to align yourself with will determine your next level in life…whether you go up or down, get better or worse, move forward or move backward and most importantly find fulfillment or disillusionment.” –Leadershipology.com
Today, I am leaving you with my, I Am statements. I encourage you to create your own statements. When you uncover who you are, you will then know what you can do.
