What Defines You?

dont try to dodge

A lot of people define themselves solely by their career. When they introduce themselves, they use their occupation. Why? Why do we define ourselves by our careers? Let’s face it’s just one aspect of life. What happens when you lose your job? You suddenly become nobody. It’s dangerous to define yourself solely on one aspect of your life and to base your success in life only on if a particular area is thriving or not. I believe that success is all round. If you are succeeding in your career but failing everywhere else- such as your family, relationships with other people, health, faith then you will not be fulfilled, well i wouldn’t.

There are different aspects to life and it is these different parts that make you. Don’t define yourself or define success in life on only one aspect of your life. On whether that aspect of your life is thriving or not, on whether you have money or your lack of it or the fact that you are married or not or on your career or lack of it etc. Define yourself holistically. Have goals for every area of your life – work, family, relationships, faith, health etc and strive to achieve them.

Lately, i have been asking myself this- based on my daily routines and actions, where can I expect to be in five years? I think you should ask yourself the question too, applying it to every area of your life. This is because what you do or don’t do today, determines your life tomorrow.  If you have goals or dreams or an idea of the things you want to achieve in say 5 years, then you need to do every day, things that will bring about the realization of those things. Though some things may be out of our control, there is always something you can do. For example you can decide to always speak positive. So start taking steps to achieve those goals/dreams/ideas now, today. Don’t procrastinate. To borrow a phrase from my colleague, “procrastination is a destiny destroyer”

Every area of your life is important. Don’t neglect any part.
