Who Are You?
Only One Way To Find Out
I hope you’re having a good day. I was faced with an extremely tough question. It was hard to understand. I was confused. At first, I was like, “I have the answer. This is the answer.” As I thought a little bit deeper and I started to think about my past, my future, time, the world, society and all of these different things, I immediately was humbled and more grateful than anything. The question is, “Who are you, Brendan? Who is Brendan Meyers?”
The interesting response to that question is a lot of people think that they have me figured out. It seems to me that someone makes a YouTube video of me and they’re like, “He does this. This is why he did it. This is his profit. This is why he did this business.” Someone else over here is like, “He gives. He’s a man of this and a man of that.” Another person is like, “He’s a Christian and who he represents is this and this.” It’s interesting to me because many people believe they have me figured out when I don’t even have myself figured out. Read that very closely and say that same thing to yourself.We don't know who we are because life is a work in progress and that's it. Click To Tweet
A lot of people believe my significant other, my best friend, my cousin, my mom, my dad, everyone believes they have me figured out. I don’t even have me figured out. The truth of the matter is life is always going to continue whether for me, for you, another person. Time is going to continue whether it’s for me, for another person in this world. It will continue no matter what. Every second that we are alive, we’re always growing. We’re always learning.
There’s always a new experience. How do you know exactly who you are if you go up to a DJ stand and you learn how to DJ for the first time? How do you know who you are if you PR on your bench press the first time ever? How do you know who you are if you buy a car and you’re not satisfied? How do you know who you are if you go on a date and you say something wrong and you’re upset at yourself? How do you know who you are if you don’t even know who you are? The simple fact is we’re confused but that’s okay. We are uncomfortable at all times but that’s okay. We don’t know who we are because life is a work in progress and that’s it.The second you stop growing is really the second that you die. Click To Tweet
When you go up to someone and they make it seem like they literally know everything, every single thing under the sun, ask them this, “Who are you?” If they tell you exactly who they are and say, “Do you truly know who you are?” Listen to their answers. The second we figure ourselves out is the second that humankind goes, “It’s over.” Without growth, there is nothing. Without transformation, there is no next step. If you need to get to the top of the mountain and there’s a staircase going all the way to the top.
That’s the only way to the top of the mountain and the staircase stops, what happens? The only way to the top of the mountain is using that staircase. You can’t get to the top and that’s the same exact thing in our lives. The second you stop growing is the second that you die. Whether that’s physically, in the gym or nutritionally, the way you’re eating, the way you’re drinking. The supplements that you’re taking or mentally, the way that you’re thinking. As you think a little bit more about this question, I want you to look at all areas of your life and where you have room to grow. Focus on those areas and keep moving forward and watch what happens. Who is Brendan Meyers? I’ll let you know when I found out.
