I am here to tell you that what you have experienced so far in your life is not “it.” It’s not the end of the story. With the right tools in hand, you can break away from that limited thinking and find a new identity—your own identity.

That is why I want to tell you a little of my own story. In order to create the life I desired and uncover my own identity and life purpose, I had to overcome the opinions and judgments of my family as well as a culture that sought to deny me what I wanted out of life.
Take a moment now and think about yourself. Have you ever had to stand up for yourself in the face of pressure from those who wanted to force you to live in a certain way? What sort of challenges are you facing now? What dreams are you fighting for?
The goal of life is not to convince every person you meet to like you. If you can connect heart to heart with those you are drawn to and with those who are drawn to you, that’s what will lead you to your own brand of success.  By Dr. Tae Yun Kim
