Nicholas Dillonabout this book: Who do you think you are?
I start this book by asking that very personal question, because I need to get your attention and I don't happen to be sitting across from you in the comfort of your local coffee house.
I might put it another way. Do you ever wonder how well you know yourself? Are you ever uncomfortable with who you are and the individual you have become? Are there times in your life when you question your feelings, emotions, or thoughts and where they might have come from? Do you ever find yourself questioning your relationships or your career choice? Are you sometimes baffled by your own behavior? If you answered yes to even one of these questions, then you're reading the right book.
The key to knowing who you are lies in a true understanding of what I call your "Frame of Reference."
Frame of Reference, as a matter of definition, is the sum total of the principles and values and points of view that you have picked up over a lifetime and that are now affecting how you communicate and how you behave. More to the point, your frame of reference is where you are in your head.
These are the things that drive your thinking and your behavior. This is your frame of reference, and it will impact everything that I talk about throughout this book.
So whether you're confident or angry, sad or energetic, indifferent or ambitious – whatever the emotion – all are tied to your frame of reference. The moment you identify your frame of reference you will be able to answer even the hardest questions: why am I depressed; why am I so driven; why do I feel hopeless; why are my relationships so stuck.
When I was a teenage, I did not like who I was. I did not feel loved. I was often bullied. I lacked confidence and had a very low self-image. Why? The reason is my frame of reference had been shaped by my home environment and childhood experiences. And it was not until I began to recognize this that I gained control over my view of the world and my view of myself.
There comes a time in your life when you may find yourself reflecting on exactly how you got to where we are right now. The answer is very straightforward: choices. It is the choices that you have made throughout your life that have gotten you to this place and time, just as surely as the choices I have made have have done the same.
Who Do you think you are? - Is a tool on how to really understand your "Frame of Reference." Once found, you will be able to look yourself in the mirror and say, "This is who I am." And, you will be able to shout it boldly to the world.
