Your Identity and the Stories You Tell Yourself

first_imgI am going to oversimplify an enormous and valuable idea here to offer you something useful. Your identity is mostly a series of stories you tell yourself and others. We treat our identity as if it is some static, fixed, and unchangeable entity, something beyond our ability to transform.While it’s true we can become attached to the stories and the identity we portray to others, it is also true that eliminating or reframing your stories can provide a different identity, a better identity, and one with more power. Your identity has greater plasticity than you might believe.What Do You Do?Let’s start with something easy, like the work you do. The first question grown-ups ask each other is “What do you do,” as if work is your primary identity. A long time ago, I would have described myself as a dishwasher. After that I was a floor guard and disc jockey, and occasionally the SkateOSaurus (where I performed the hokey-pokey for grade school children on roller skates while dressed in a giant dinosaur costume, true story).Not too long after that I was the lead singer and front man for a rock ‘n roll band. How could you tell that I was the lead singer for a rock ‘n roll band? I would tell you that’s what I was, and by looking at my outward appearance, the long hair, the earrings, and the clothes, it was easy to see what I believed I was. It was the appearance of a story.One day you are one thing, and the next you are another. Think about your education. One day you’re a student, the next day you’re a graduate. We have a ceremony to help you make this transformation. What you were, you are no more. It was only necessary so that you could become what you now are. One story ends, and another begins.The Story That Defines YouMany of the stories we use to define ourselves are not quite as easy to break free from. There are people who define themselves by the negative events that have occurred in their lives. They believe that they are, “the product of their parent’s divorce.” Some believe that they are the “victim of some event.” Some believe that their identity is limited by decisions or events of their past, like “I never went to college.”We start telling these stories as a way to explain something that we are doing—or not doing, as the case may be. We absolve ourselves of our responsibility by pointing to a set of stories that explain away our behavior or our current state. In doing so, we limit what might become, removing possibilities for another identity.In order to be what you might become you must give up the stories that prevent that transformation.Any story based on some event of the past can be eliminated completely by understanding that it is not responsible for who you are now or can be reframed in the positive. Your interpretation of a story can keep you locked in an identity that’s too small for you or it can unlock your greater potential. It is possible to interpret every negative event or circumstance of your life as “the adversity that made me strong enough to be what I became.”Your identity is fluid, not fixed. To become the person that comes after the person you are now, you have to let go of the stories that keep you fixed in place.last_img read more

Cricket: Sourav Ganguly recently in an interview states that runs won’t judge Virat Kohli

first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementThe former Indian Cricket team captain and the Prince of Calcutta, Sourav Ganguly in a recent interview had a chat about the current Indian squad. Dada mentioned that the Indian team skipper, Virat Kohli shall be recognized and remembered for his leadership abilities rather than the runs he scores.Being asked about Virat Kohli’s captaincy in a chat with Harsha Bhogle on CricBuzz Unplugged, he replied that Kohli needs to have the eye of picking players which is very important and has no set of rules to it. A captain must see a player and understand what he is capable of and how can he be motivated to deliver for the team. Virat has always backed his players which is a trend that has come over in Indian Cricket over the years.Dada sees Virat as a very passionate captain who has brought good things in Indian Cricket and Kohli shall be judged by how he takes Indian cricket with him. He ended by saying that only time can tell whether Virat finishes as a successful captain or not after managing all the pressure a captain has to face on a daily basis while playing overseas and at home.Also Read :Cricket : 20 year old Pant included in the Indian Test Squad ahead of the England clashCricket: Essex bowlers reveal the plans they followed to get Kohli and Dhawan’s wicketlast_img read more

10 months agoPSG chief Henrique casts suspicion on Barcelona over Rabiot behaviour

first_imgPSG chief Henrique casts suspicion on Barcelona over Rabiot behaviourby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the lovePSG chief Antero Henrique has hit out at Barcelona over their attempts to sign Adrien Rabiot.Rabiot has been banished to the stands for refusing to consider new contract talks at PSG, where his current deal expires in June.Henrique suspects the influence of Barca and snapped: “Mrs. Rabiot said that we had received an offer this summer. That’s right, a bid on August 29, twenty hours before the end of the transfer window. “It is then simple: Barcelona first had to reach an agreement with Rabiot before we were being talked to. And you also need to know that the Barcelona offer was ridiculous.”We, the club, were surprised by the low bid. It was disrespectful for someone with the status of Rabiot. I continue to emphasise: it is not possible to reach agreement within 24 hours on a player like Rabiot. It seems clear to me that Barcelona already had an agreement with Adrien. “I’m sure he has an agreement with another club anyway. Whether he can leave in the winter? He told me he does not want to stay.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Jamalco Hands Over Titles

first_imgThirty-one families were presented with titles by Jamalco on June 23, as the company seeks to bring closure to its land settlement agreements with persons in several communities in Clarendon.          Minister of Transport and Mining, Hon. Mike Henry, congratulated the bauxite mining company for the initiative, which saw persons who had been resettled as a result of mining activities receiving their titles.  Mr. Henry, who is also  Chairman of the Bauxite Lands Land Titling Committee, was guest speaker at the handing over ceremony, held at the  Halse Hall Great House in Clarendon on June 23.“Over the last two years, Jamalco has successfully transferred approximately 99 titles to occupants in ten subdivisions, namely New Bowens, Phases One, Two and Three; Sheckles One and Two; New Wales; Burke and Belle Plain. While this is a good start I want more to be done. A 100 per cent increase in the number of titles issued annually is not an impossible dream, so this is my challenge to Jamalco,” the Minister said.  In response to the need to fulfil its titling obligations, Jamalco established a Land Closure Team in 2015 and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Land Administration and Management Programme (LAMP).  Jamalco’s Land Closure Administrator, Mrs. Tamara Grant-Bogle, said  the association with LAMP has made the process smoother and speedier, in terms of processing time and cost savings.           She reported that Jamalco has transferred 177 titles to persons since the process of acquiring land began.According to Mrs. Grant-Bogle, titling obligations have also been closed out for two sub-divisions, namely New Wales and Burke in Knockpatrick, Manchester.   Jamalco now has the distinction of being the first bauxite company to hand over 232 titles to the Commissioner of Lands.last_img read more

Humangenerated noise noted as key factor endangering whales off East Coast

first_imgHALIFAX — Canadian scientists say human-made sounds in the ocean are a key factor contributing to the threatened status of three types of whales off the east coast.The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada released its findings today on the sei whale, fin whale and Sowerby’s beaked whale following a gathering of 43 scientists in St. John’s, N.L., over the weekend.Researchers who study marine mammal populations say that the continuing low numbers of the sei whale in the aftermath of decades of whaling led them to ask for an endangered designation.They also found that the fin whales and the Sowerby’s beaked whales should continue to be designated as species “of special concern.”Hal Whitehead, the co-chair of the marine mammals sub-committee, says the whales’ assessments are linked to fishing gear entanglements and the whales being struck by the increasing number of large ships in the Atlantic Ocean.The Dalhousie University scientist says that in addition, the growing levels of noise from ships, navy vessels and ongoing seismic exploration for oil and gas is impeding the whales communication and survival.He says the Sowerby’s beaked whale, which is slower and smaller than the fin and sei, is believed to be particularly susceptible to noise pollution.The committee’s news release says that much like bats, the Sowerby’s beaked whale uses sound to navigate and to hunt, and the human-generated noise impairs the whale’s ability to find its way.Whitehead says the hope is that the federal government will take steps to protect habitat for the whales by adding to the size and number of marine protected areas.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

New naturally lowcaffeine option for tea drinkers

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Nov 8 2018Tea drinkers who seek the popular beverage’s soothing flavor without its explosive caffeine jolt could soon have a new, naturally low-caffeine option. In a study appearing in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, scientists report that a recently discovered wild tea plant in China contains little or no caffeine and, unlike many industrially decaffeinated products, could potentially provide many of the health benefits of regular brewed teas.In 2017, Americans drank nearly 4 billion gallons of tea, according to the Tea Association of the USA. The association estimates that up to 18 percent of those drinks were decaffeinated. To decaffeinate tea, manufacturers often use supercritical carbon dioxide or hot water treatments. However, these methods can affect the brew’s flavor and destroy compounds in the tea associated with lowered cholesterol, reduced risk of heart attack or stroke, and other health benefits. Recently, scientists discovered hongyacha (HYC), a rare wild tea found in the mountains of southern China. Local residents believe it can it can cure colds, soothe stomach pain and relieve a host of other ailments. But little is known about its structural makeup or its chemical composition. Liang Chen and colleagues sought to close that gap.The researchers used high-performance liquid chromatography to analyze HYC buds and leaves collected during the growing season. In addition to finding several potentially health-promoting compounds not found in regular tea, they determined that HYC contains virtually no caffeine. Digging deeper, they found this was because of a mutation in the gene encoding the enzyme tea caffeine synthase, which promotes caffeine production in most tea plants. The researchers conclude that naturally low-caffeine HYC could possibly become a popular drink because of its distinct composition and unique health benefits.Source: https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/presspacs/2018/acs-presspac-november-07-2018/newly-discovered-naturally-low-caffeine-tea-plant.htmllast_img read more
