Who’s Your Biggest Identity Thief? Your biggest identity thief could be you. Not in the literal sense, of course, but negative self-talk, lack of confidence and even depression all discount your personal identity.

When change occurs, which can happen at any stage of life with a death, end of a relationship, a move or even the loss of a job, it’s easy to look inward.  That inward focus robs you of joy, satisfaction and even the courage to go on. How does one pull out of a time like this? There are no cut and dry answers, but there is help!

The reason I wrote my first book Stuck is Not a Four Letter Word was because I was going through a time of feeling stuck. It is also the reason I put together the online course Change Your Life: Get Unstuck based on the book. When the identity thief was knocking hard at my door and beating me down, I interviewed, wrote my thoughts and worked through life-changing steps to get unstuck.

When the Hacker Arrives

When a hacker started destroying a website I had worked so hard for years to craft, I learned enough code to find the source of the problem. Again, after research, interviews and documenting many of the solutions I found, I wrote the book Bad CodeIt’s based on some of the research I found, applied to our personal identity and mindsets. There are some life-changing principles based on mindsets in that book.

Did you know that even after you die, your thumbprint can open your iPhone if accessed within 48 hours of death? Apparently, the newest technology of facial recognition will replace Touch ID in the near future. (If not already on the iPhone X)  All this demonstrates that personal identity is valuable and is worth protecting.

Your Uniqueness

Every person is unique in stature, personality, and competency. All it takes is walking down a busy street to notice different hair colors, skin colors, the shape of faces and body types. the list is endless.  But those are only outer differences.

Everyone has different and unique gifts. One of the cables of success we cover in Hero Mountain Summit for Women at Halftime is Competency or Core Strengths. You have natural abilities and skills that are just a little different from everyone else. You are unique and it’s imperative to own your uniqueness.

It is a fact that bodies change with every passing year. Health challenges affect lifestyle and even certain relationships that are toxic attack and discount your worth. Remember, you are valuable and you can move forward with courage and certainty, especially as you reflect on the detail and design of who you are as a human being.

The fact that your iPhone cannot be accessed with anyone else’s fingerprint as it is so distinct speaks largely of your unique identity. With facial recognition, the technology will be even more specific, but apparently, facial recognition will be difficult to use upon the onset of rigor mortis. Fortunately, I won’t be here to find out if they ever need to use that when I’ve reached my heavenly graduation! I’ll be in a much better place! I encourage you to celebrate your personal uniqueness today!
