How do you know who you are? And, how do you know you’re walking a crooked road on the path of your life?
Is it self-doubt? Feeling like an impostor?
Is it because you keep trying an can’t seem to get it right?
Maybe you’re so worried about it up that you never get started.
Whatever your experience, if you think you’re doing it wrong, you’re not alone. Feeling like you’re doing it wrong doesn’t mean you are. Still, it helps to know which criteria you are measuring that by.
The trouble is that literally since birth we’ve been taught that the answers are outside of us. That other people have the answers and we should listen up and learn. We get it from our parents, teachers, preachers. From pop culture and the media. From our bosses and our spouses. Everyone else seems to have an opinion about what we should know and who we should be.
That’s useful when you’re a child. Not so much as you grow up.
In the course of daily living, who could possibly know what’s best for you, than YOU? What you like. What you want. Who you are. And yet, there really isn’t a point where we take control of that for ourselves. Where we start validating ourselves from the inside rather than external validations.
Formal rites of passage have, for the most part, gone extinct.
All of this begs the questions, Who are you and how do you know that’s who you are?
The KTM Method was created to help people answer these questions:
- How do you KNOW who you are?
- How do you TEACH others who you are?
- How do you MANAGE who you are over changing times and circumstances?
Because when you know who you are, and by what criteria you know, you can teach others with confidence so they know how to engage with you.
You don’t have to guess what to do or be wrong about getting it right. You know what to say and do because those things come natural to you when you are genuinely being yourself.
There is no proving or defending, explaining or justifying. There is just being.
When who you are is lined up with how you think, what you say and what you do, others aren’t confused by the subliminal messages you put out.
An intimate relationship with yourself allows for intimate relationships with others. We crave intimacy, but shy away from it to protect ourselves because it seems risky. Being vulnerable with others is less scary when you truly know yourself.
