How to Create a New Identity and Why It's Important

Identity transformation, a fascinating concept that pertains to the process of consciously reshaping one's personal beliefs, habits, and environment for self-development, plays a pivotal role in personal growth. Lance Essihos, an advocate of this intriguing concept, suggests that our identity is sculpted by our everyday habits, actions, and past experiences. With an unwavering belief in the potential for personal metamorphosis, Essihos emphasizes the capacity to alter one's identity by cultivating new habits and taking distinct actions. He underlines the importance of crafting a lucid vision of the individual you aspire to be, aligning your actions with this vision to revolutionize your identity. According to Essihos, confronting discomfort and stretching beyond one's comfort zone are crucial steps in creating a fresh identity, as adherence to old habits can result in stagnation.

The Hidden Costs of Low Self-Worth: How to Break Free from the Self-Sabotage Cycle w/Lance Essihos EP 412

📌 Grab a copy of Lance’s book, MASTERING ADVERSITY now available on Amazon. Click the link to buy the book: Mastering Adversity Amazon🧠 Schedule a PICK MY BRAIN with Lance Essihos: https://www.pickmybrain.world/profiles/lance-essihosWelcome back to University of Adversity. On today’s episode, Lance gets vulnerable and talks about his recent challenges around self-worth. Shifting your perspective about self-worth can be a challenging but transformative process. Here are some tips that may help:Identify negative thought patterns: Start by paying attention to your negative self-talk. What kind of thoughts do you have about yourself? Are they kind and supportive or critical and judgmental? Once you are aware of your negative thought patterns, you can start to challenge them.Challenge negative thoughts: When you notice negative thoughts, challenge them by asking yourself whether they are really true. For example, if you have a thought like, "I'm not good enough," ask yourself if that's really true. Are there things you're good at or that you're proud of? Practice reframing your thoughts in a more positive light.Practice self-compassion: Treat yourself with the same kindness and understanding that you would offer to a good friend. Recognize that everyone makes mistakes and experiences setbacks, and that you are no exception.Focus on your strengths: Make a list of your strengths and focus on them. It's easy to get caught up in our weaknesses and flaws, but shifting your focus to your strengths can help you feel more confident and capable.Set realistic goals: Setting realistic goals and achieving them can help you feel more accomplished and increase your sense of self-worth. However, it's important to set goals that are achievable and realistic. Unrealistic goals can lead to disappointment and feelings of failure.Practice gratitude: Take time each day to reflect on the things you're grateful for. Focusing on the good things in your life can help shift your perspective and increase feelings of self-worth.Remember, shifting your perspective takes time and practice. Be patient and kind to yourself throughout the process.

Don’t Let Your Past Define Your Future w/Lance Essihos EP 371

In this episode, Lance talks about how it’s an exciting season for him as he is going through shifts in his personal life and in his business. He discusses what makes a past decision a good one versus a bad one. People tend to attach outcomes to the decisions that they make and therefore, qualify their decisions as good or bad based on the outcome. But Lance has a different take on this. He challenged this thought process and said what appears to be a failure might be good in the long term and what seems good now might not be the best in the long run.&nbsp;If a decision you made didn’t work out, maybe it’s holding you back from potentially something even greater. Therefore, it’s important to have a bigger vision and expand our imagination. He then mentioned that he does not sit around regretting his decisions as he did what was best at that moment and learned from those experiences.&nbsp;&nbsp;IN THIS EPISODE, YOU WILL LEARN:🔥 00:43 What I like about my new place in Miami🔥 01:53 What I learned from the Gobundance Conference&nbsp;🔥 03:24 What makes a decision we make good or bad🔥 10:24 On what basis do we make our decisions&nbsp;🔥 15:30 What Entrepreneurship has taught me&nbsp;&nbsp;🎧&nbsp; Subscribe &amp; Listen on Apple Podcasts &amp; Spotify!👉🏼 AVAILABLE ON ALL PODCAST PLATFORMS 👈🏼📺 Subscribe to the University of Adversity Podcast YouTube Channel&nbsp;⏬ LINK IN THE COMMENTS BELOW ⏬
