Let me ask you a few questions:

Do you identify yourself as someone who:

…delivers value?
…is wealthy?
…is healthy?
…is ambitious?

We all have thoughts about ourselves that run the gamut from positive to negative. I’m sure some of these sound familiar – traits we’re proud of, skills we possess, insecurities we obsess over, deficiencies we worry about, etc.

When you add all of those together, they become your personal identity…

The way you think about yourself.

And that, my friend, is a very powerful thing.

Here’s why…

Your identity determines your belief…

…and your belief determines your behavior.

When your identity is out of alignment with your goals, you’re never going to take the actions needed to achieve those goals.

So how do we fix that? How do we make that shift?

I’ve got 3 tips today to shift your identity and change your life.

Identity shifting method 1: Who you know

They say you become like the five people you spend the most time with.

So that begs the question:

Are you spending enough time with the right people?

Who you spend your time with absolutely matters.

You need to model your behaviors around the type of people you want to emulate and then grow those behaviors into becoming automatic – part of your everyday routine.

Identity shifting method 2: pick small tasks and document your wins

If you truly want to shift your identity, then let’s get you on the right track.

By breaking strategies down into small tasks, you’ll be able to start making headway almost immediately.

Then, start documenting your wins.

Every time you check off a completed task, you’re forging your identity as someone who does what you say you’re going to do.

“I get things done.”
“I follow through.”
“I make my phone calls.”
“I go to the gym.”

Starting with the small tasks allows you to “feel” your wins and start building momentum. There’s actually a physiological response in your brain when you complete a task and check it off your list.

Remember renowned philosopher Jim Rohn’s words of wisdom: the things required to achieve the greatest things in life are both easy to do… and easy not to do.
