There’s a lot of talk about “ideology” these days, and it’s usually not in a good way.
But what about YOUR ideology?
Do you know who you are?
Before I go on, ideology is simply a creed, culture, dogma, outlook, philosophy, theory, or view. And let’s not forget ideas, principles, and tenants.
At the end of the day, an ideology is what you stand for in this world. And, if you do it well, it’s also how other people know what you stand for in this world. It’s also up to you to decide that for yourself. After all…
If you don’t know who you are and tell the world, the world will decide who you are and tell you who to be.
That’s why I have a living document that establishes who I am, what I believe, and serves as a foundation of growth and change as I live and evolve. I call it my “Who I Am” document. It’s all mine, and I share who I am with the world through my actions.
How do you see yourself?
How do others see you?
How do you act in situations?
What do you believe?
What kind of people do you hang out with?
What are the rules you follow for YOU?
This list is endless and should be. After all, you are a complicated and ever-changing person.
Can I make you a promise?
It’s easy these days to seek sources outside of yourself to find out who you are on the inside.
It’s also easy to let the agenda of others infiltrate your thinking and pull you down a path that isn’t who you are meant to be in this life.
The very instant that you sit down and document who you are and want to be, nothing else will matter. And the more dedicated you are to documenting YOU… the more you will get to be YOU.
How do you do it?
That’s easy too. Just ask yourself who you are in every area of your life, document your answer, and live it every day.
