“Get Off My Bus” Tip #20

Filed under: Uncategorized — Robin Sacks...Speaker, Author, Performance Coach @ 7:07 am


Find your “authentic.”

Too many people have an identity that they have created. It is not truly who they are. It has more to do with what they do. Of course, the problem with creating an identity is when a paycheck goes away or when a car goes away or when something goes away associated with that label, you’ve not only lost a material item but also your identity. A lot of people in our society are in a very vulnerable situation because of that.

Let’s be honest with ourselves…we are an impulsive, entitled group of people. We want things, we want things now, and we will not hesitate to promise away years of income we have not even made yet to get it. Examples come in the form of cars that lose half their value the second you drive them off the lot, mortgages that stretch us out of our comfort zones, the latest technology gadgets (whether they enrich our lives or not), 412 channels on our cable systems, and $4 cups of coffee just to name a few.

If you are married to the materialism of life, you will end up in a nasty divorce at some point. Your false identity will never sustain you. You are setting yourself up for failure if you are not being true to yourself. When you find your “authentic,” the wealth that follows is fantastic! You are doing it all backwards.

So…who are you?

Until tomorrow…
