Join me, Dr. Candace Knoss, a physical therapist, wellness coach, follower of Christ, and mother of six, as we explore the concept of our strategic self versus our true self in this episode of "Designed for Greatness." My mission through the Mind Body Spirit Trifecta is to spread love for God, love for self, and love for others, empowering individuals to elevate their mind, body, and spirit to embrace their divine greatness. This week, I reflect on the theme of alignment, my word for the year. My goal is to live authentically as the truest version of myself, shedding light on instances when I veer off course into my strategic self. It's enlightening to recognize how the strategic self emerges to please others, conform to societal norms, or shy away from discomfort, leading to stagnation and self-sabotage. I challenge you to identify relationships or situations that test your alignment with your true self, acknowledging the strategic self's aversion to conflict. However, conflict can be a catalyst for growth, provided it is approached with compassion, curiosity, and an emphasis on building trust and understanding. Can you pinpoint moments when your strategic self dominates, causing you to deviate from your true self? Recognizing when you present a diluted version of yourself is key to understanding why the strategic self takes the reins. Let's cultivate the courage to embrace our true selves fully and engage in heartfelt, authentic interactions that nurture connection and personal growth.
