Who Do You Choose To Be?

Who Do You Choose To Be?

I heard a wonderful quote recently from Sidney Poitier whilst being interviewed by Oprah. During his interview he shared that when he was young and new to America he faced his first real exposure to racial prejudice. During this time he was asked “Who are You?” and his response was

“I am who I choose to be!”

I loved this. Not only because of the strength and fortitude it takes to understand and articulate this at such a young age but because knowing who you choose to be and consistently living by this is the essence of personal branding. It’s about understanding yourself and your values and building a personal identity that aligns authentically with these.  

Ask yourself today – Who Do You Choose To Be?
