Identity is basically how you self define and how you self describe. It’s basically is who you see yourself as, which drives your behavior. It’s your story about yourself. So your identity is basically how you see yourself.And what’s interesting about identity is a lots of it comes from your goal. Whatever your goal is thats a big part of what you’ll view as your identity.Whatever goal you have for your future alternatively drives your identity and your identity drives your behavior and over time that reflects your personality.Our identity builds our attitudes and our attitudes determines our perceptions and values.So, keep adapting and evolving according to the changing environment because by constantly changing our identity, our beliefs are perspectives about anything in life changes.
Not at times but very often rather, we try justifying wherever we are wrong and strongly put on the table all that we feel we are right at.The idea of both right and wrong is so vast and varied as it builds on everything that your life experiences and the world teaches you.It’s the way life has been, the people around you have been, your family have been, your religion and culture have been, contributes to your entire thought process and perspective towards what the right and wrong is.But then that certainly does not sum up that you are brought up with everything right and nothing wrong or everything wrong and nothing right.
Even the best of life, family and culture can keep you aloof from knowing and understanding what actually is the right way and the one who grew up with a conflicting negative environment around does not necessarily be judged to have a wrong perspective towards things.Somewhere I feel, we all have a side of our personalities that is negative, stubborn and stringent that we really do not try to see and understand what better can be thought and spoken. We stick so hard to everything that whatever our Life experiences and our family ethics have made us learn. We assume that our perspective is the perfect right always and become blindfolded to what better can be thought, what better perspective can be listened to and how much better we can become by accepting that we are just not perfect, we still can imbibe something much better.
Not everything we feel we are perfectly right at, is right. It’s just that we might have not thought beyond our thought process.At one particular stage of adulthood ,we get so strongly hardwired with a mindset that has been a contribution of all that happened to us and was put into us that we really become disabled to think beyond that zone.I too have felt numerous times that certain things are right the way I assume them to be right. But then when I try making an effort to consciously allow my mind to be more flexible than stringent, I do feel an inflow of a better vision, thought process, perspective and point of view of people around me.This flexibility of mind to at least allow yourself to understand what and how the world outside thinks is such an incredible enlistment that it helps you to evolve and have more wiser perspectives.I feel once we open our minds to listen and understand what others’ perspectives are, we are left no more as tiny as a pond but transcend to become as big as an ocean.Do not be misled by your pond little knowledge, embrace everything to become an ocean.
Fear is mostly our anticipation of an uncertain future. When things go beyond our control, when our blueprint of life doesn’t match with our reality, we feel uncertain about our future which makes us anxious and fearful.Most of our fears are anticipations and not real. We fear a lot of things, but when we actually encounter our fears in life, we handle it beautifully, and confidently because human being is an adaptation machine. In order to survive we need to learn, adapt and evolve.And if we are not dying that means we are living and evolving and getting better and better everyday.
