Discovering Your Best Self
You are unique.
Maybe you’ve heard that before, but this time I want you to
let the idea wash over you in a new way. No one could truly
know what it has meant to walk in your shoes because only
you have walked in them.
Your sum experiences, thoughts,
feelings, genetics, and spirit are yours alone. There has never
been another you, nor will there ever be. You are no better or
worse than anyone else, and even when you don’t feel like you
are anywhere near good enough, you are enough because of
one simple truth . . . you are you. The only one.
When you were born, you arrived with some innate traits
that distinguish you from others. You carry specific genes that
you received from your parents.
You probably appreciate your
parents for some of those genetic qualities they handed down;
others, well, you may wish you could give them back! But
your DNA is only part of the story of you, and a small part at
Our stories begin at a very young age, despite the
powerlessness we have to control what and who is around us
in that stage of our lives. Children are blank slates, and in the
early years, our parents and others write on those slates for us.
But it is important to know our origin stories nonetheless, so
that we can be aware of whether we are expressing ourselves
as adults in a way that aligns with who we truly are and, more
important, to understand if any negative aspects of our origin
story might be affecting our current behavior in some fashion.
You might be wondering how it’s possible to get out of
alignment with our truth, so let’s investigate and take an
objective look at a typical upbringing. This may not exactly
represent your experience but based on my years of coaching,
I’m willing to bet it’s not too far off.
We have no choice in how we are raised. We’re all born into
a family system of some kind. The core family dynamics vary
widely, and there are fundamental values within family
systems that may or may not match up with our own,
individual values. We’ll have an in-depth discussion about
values in the Relationships chapter, but the bottom line is that
much of the early shaping of our personality occurs as a result
of the family dynamic in which we are raised.
Most of us
attend school or group activities that begin to teach us how to
socialize. We develop hobbies. At some point in our early
lives, we start to develop a gut feeling about right and wrong.
Eventually, as we physically mature, we become responsible
for our own self-care and our physical health.
