Define who are you
This is not exactly a typical blog specifically relating to gym-type things, but bear with me, I have a lot of thoughts I would like to pass on to you going into this next year. Something that has been on my mind a lot for the last few weeks is the question: who are you? When someone asks you this, what comes to mind? Do you say, “I am a physical therapist.” Or maybe, “I am a mother.” The answer to the question, “Who are you?” is quite literally what your mind has conjured up as the explanation for your physical existence.
For me, the answer is, “I am a personal trainer.” But…. I am so much more than my job. I am a brother, a son, powerlifter, an uncle, a friend, a nephew, and so much more. I bring this up to you because I would like for you to do me a favor and be thinking about who you are, I mean, who you really are, deep down. Do not let your complex life and soul be simplified down to one, singular purpose!
Instead of New Year’s resolutions you should think about who you are going to be in 2019
You are more that just one single thing
You, whoever is reading this, are so much more than your job. There are so many roles you play and your identity is a beautiful thing!
This year you should really think about what defines your identity. Instead of New Year’s resolutions you should think about who you are going to be in 2019. How will you be defined? How will you make a difference based on this definition? When someone asks you, “Who are you?” You should not give them a simple, one line answer. The answer should be full of everything you are truly made up of. Your memories, your family, your life, and everything about it, this should all play into who you are.
