The Missing Element of Identity

Identity is one of the most important things for a man to walk in confidence. He needs to know who he is and what he is all about. Yet, so many men today are going through life without a real identity. They wear masks throughout their life and miss out on their true design. Identity is important to men but no one can give a man their identity. Each man must find his identity himself. There are no shortcuts to this or hacks that can help a man take the easy route. Each man must take on the responsibility of finding his own identity and it starts with finding his purpose.

The Missing Element of Identity

  • We need to answer the question, "Why am I here?"
  • Purpose is the missing element of identity
  • The key to purpose is understanding that purpose is unique
  • Men need purpose because it drives us

Purpose Must Be Found

  • As men, purpose is something we must look for and find for ourselves
  • Every man must find his purpose
  • Men were designed to live with an outward focus and we are at our best when we do
  • Your purpose is found in the small decisions that you build up every day

Purpose Anchors a Man

  • The power of purpose is not as much what the purpose is but what it does to us as men
  • Purpose gives us an anchor in our life
  • Purpose is a foundation for our relationships
  • Purpose helps you build consistency
  • Consistency in our life must be built on something more than feelings or motivation
