Consider All of Your Labels

Take the opportunity today to consider all of your labels.

 

I don’t mean the ones in the back of your shirt or blouse. I mean the ones that you and other people tag you with; mum, wife, volunteer, colleague, writer, coach – whatever they are. Write them all down, as many as you can think of. Ask, your spouse or your kids or your friends to help identify them for you if you need to.

 

Once you have that list give it a read through. Understand what each of those labels mean to you and to everyone that knows you. Realise how connected you are through those labels. Realise how important you are to all of those people.

 

Now realise that you are not just those labels. You are any label you want to be. Consider what other labels you would like to be defined by.

 

Champion Skydiver maybe? Successful Business Owner? Mover and Shaker in the field of [xyz]? Guitar Legend? Explorer?

 

You get the idea – you are unlimited.
