We struggle to identity ourselves, but what is the real truth about our Identity?
Today Dustin is talking about Identity with David Sachsenmaier, a trained and certified executive coach whose identity was challenged by a family crisis as a child and now focuses on identity as a cornerstone in his work with others.
Dustin and David discuss the Three Lies we tend to believe about who we are:
- I am what I do: Our job defines us, we find worth/identity in our work.
- I am what I have: Identity is wrapped around what we have and own. “I brought nothing into this world, and I will take nothing with me when I leave this world”.
- I am what others think of me: Our view of ourselves is being shaped the day we are born, by our interactions with others, and especially our relationship with our parents.
