All The Things You Are is named after a jazz song. I love jazz, but I don’t know enough about it to blog about it… so that’s not what this site is about.

This is a site about you.

It’s about the beliefs we have about ourselves, and how those beliefs basically determine how we live and the choices we make. We can’t change what happens to us, but everything you actively or even subconsciously do (or don’t do) is passed through the lens of what you believe to be true about you, the world around you, and how you fit in the world.

These beliefs are where all our choices are formed. Choices like:

  • Will you go to the gym? (Not if you think people will look at you, or if you believe that you won’t get fitter/thinner/healthier.)
  • Do you speak up in a meeting? (Not if you think people won’t value your ideas, or that you will get talked over).?
  • Will you go talk to a stranger? (Not if you believe that you have nothing interesting to say, or that you will be rejected or humiliated.)

I believe that we each have the ability to affect our lives for the better by understanding some truths about ourselves, and that a big part of doing anything is believing that you are capable of it. But we all have these limiting beliefs, mostly around who we think we are, and then what that means we are able to do.

What if you could change those beliefs about you? What could you do in your life that you haven’t been able to do before? I’d like to explore that a little, and help you to understand all the things you are – and some things you’re not.

This is a site about you.
