How to Craft Your Identity to Build Your Dream Life (w/ Anthony Trucks)
“It’s hard to see the label when you’re in the jar.”
Are you intimately familiar with your identity? Who are you now, and were you any different from the person that you were a few years back?
Sometimes, we’re faced with the challenge of drifting away from who we are, or who we want to be. Just as Anthony says, having a glimpse of other people’s perspective towards you can help you figure out who you are, and can help give you a clearer vision of yourself. It’s also important that you ask yourself who you were, who you currently are, and who you want to become. With the answers, you will be able to formulate a plan that works towards realizing the identity that you dream to attain.
Stemming from the latin word “Identitatem” meaning “sameness,” the word “Identity” represents the characteristics that determine who or what a person or thing is. When you combine the aspects that define a person and the person themselves, identity is- in one way or another- achieved. By then, the person and the traits that they have are one with each other. At times, a person experiences a particular dissonance where they are unable to figure out who they are, or where they belong in the world. They’re at a loss trying to find the characteristics that ultimately define them.
Fortunately, humans are complex, and identities don’t tend to stay the same or remain a question. Just because you can’t get up at 4 in the morning to push through with an intensive workout routine now, doesn’t mean you won’t be able to do it later. Humans are intelligent, and have the ability to adapt. With that said, they’re able to shift identities. You can always work towards obtaining the characteristics you desire, all you have to do is plan your journey and to follow that plan without any compromises.
For this video, I invited former NFL player and ex-American Ninja Warrior Anthony Trucks to talk about the Identity Shift, the process of controlling your identity to change your life and the traits that make up who you are. With the Shift Method, Anthony explains that you can become the future self that you dream to be, with almost any trait that you desire to obtain- in time. Join us as we tackle different phases that take place during one’s identity shift, and the specific steps and nitty-gritty details on how you can further improve your self-improvement game plan.
Anthony Trucks, now a CEO, Coach, and speaker, extends a helping hand to those entrepreneurs who face trouble taking control of their identity and shifting it to manifest the better selves that live in their visions. With The Shift Method, Anthony guarantees that you will be able to manage yourself more effectively, and plan your days in a way that is infallible. All you have to do is follow those plans, and make sure that you have a Discipline System to resort to in case you start falling out of your routine.
Enjoy the episode everyone!
