What do you Stand for?

Posted by Phil Black on September 14th, 2014

What the three words define you as a person?

Yup, just three words. Not a sentence, or a paragraph, or a Rorschach Test interpretation, or a Meyers-Briggs Personality Test result. Just three little old little words that define you as a person - that tell the world what you stand for, that paint the picture of exactly how you live your life, that are distinctly you with your fingerprints all over them. 3 words - that's all. How hard could that be?








Here are some words that might get the juices flowing:

  • enthusiastic
  • passionate
  • integrity
  • devoted
  • loving
  • confident

I have no idea if any of these words are right for you. You need to come up with your own. If you know yours right away, please share them with us if you are comfortable doing so. Personally, I've had a hard time coming up with three words right off the bat. I've had to dig deep and really think about who I am and what I stand for.

By the way, the beauty of this exercise is that the three words can be future-oriented. They do not have to define what you "stood" for, they are supposed to define what you stand for - going forward. So, if you need to re-focus your life and actually put 3 stakes in the ground, do so!

It's amazing how much time and money corporations spend defining their core principles, creating a mission statement, designing a logo, or crafting a slogan. Billions and billions of dollars!

Why do we spend so little time (if any) defining how to live our own lives? What we stand for? What our core principles are? What our life's logo would look like?  

Give this some thought. I really look forward to what you all have to say. I'll be working on my 3 words, too.

Best in health,
