Many beings... you are.
Earlier this week, I shared a video talking about the phrase, "That's just who I am" and what it really means.
You've heard people use it... Maybe you've used it yourself. I know I'm guilty.
But saying things like this amount to one singular thing.
Saying "that's just who I am" is really Just saying, "That's all I'll ever be". Wait a tick, what?.
Your "I am" statements determine your life.
And, if your I am statements are fixed and #pigeonhole you into one aspect of what you are capable of being, growth and #expansion are not in your cards.
Innately you know this is true, but it's a #convenient excuse to stay stuck.
The fact is you are never one type of person... and you #unconsciously show up different ways all the time.
Usually, because of your environment.
One minute you're business guy, then father, teacher or neighbor... you unconsciously move to what #serves you most in each instance.
A #classic is example is the persona you take on when you visit your parents... no matter how old you are.
My wife, for example, is expected to help cook and prepare meals or set the table when we visit her family.
Why? Because that's the way it's always been.
It's "just who she is" in that environment... she could chose any persona, but that's the one she likes and it doesn't require extra effort or change.
Harmless in that example... less so if you want to expand.
Different environments will #demand different versions of you.
If you want an expanded life or experience here, it begins and ends with how you #choose to show up.
As you change, your environment will as well.
Having an environment of big houses or multiple homes, great marriages, relationships, money, health and wellness, or fulfillment is the result of how you are #being now.
Saying "That's just who I am" is an excuse to keep being who you are because it's #scary as fuck to expand.
Give being #notyou a shot. You'll probably get "not you" results... maybe, for the better.
