Where You Reside Is So Much More Than Just An Address
Chances are, ask most people where they reside, and they’ll answer with some sort of geographical location. But maybe the reality of where we truly reside, is far more in-depth and self-serving – either in a negative or positive way?
Isn’t it true that as we progress through life’s often-challenging pathways, we can only do so, based on our present level of Awareness; after all, we don’t know what we don’t know – awareness is always a great starting point to progress from.
Next, we have our human needs. Personally, I strongly resonate with Anthony Robbins’s Six Human Needs version; where he propounds our needs around certainty, variety, significance, love & connection, growth, and ultimately, contribution.
Stepping further, are our Beliefs and Values. Gandhi offered a great insight around how your beliefs become your thoughts; your thoughts become your words; your words become your actions; your actions become your habits; your habits become your values, and finally, your values become your destiny.
Isn’t it also true that we tend to really focus on a select few things in our lives – a bit like 3-4 strong pillars – that resolutely uphold our approach to life? For me personally, my key 3 Pillars of Life are Purpose, Prosperity & Philanthropy.
Building on this, we all need a Mission in life – such as helping others, for example – as well as having something to aspire to, by way of a Vision; in the case of the latter, mine is encapsulated within the HEARTS acronym of …’Helping Everyone Achieve Results Towards Success’.
If we imagine all these various considerations as building blocks – to construct our own ‘safe residence’ – the only thing that remains, is to place a roof on the top; one that proudly bears our Identity. After all, isn’t one of the most important questions we constantly ask ourselves, is ‘Who am I?’
So begs the question: ‘Where do you reside?’ and even more importantly…
‘Who are you?
