Identity: Passport to Success asks students “Have you ever thought about the connection between knowing who you are and success? Identity can serve as your greatest asset. Enduringly successful people know who they are, are clear about what matters to them, have established powerful identities, and create value in the world. The process for discovering and understanding identity is brought to life through Stedman Graham's personal experiences and the stories of individuals that will help students resolve questions of identity. Students will learn to build a life that matters to them and those around them by taking control of who they are and their lives, to achieve lasting success.
Do you want to be happy? Do you want to succeed? Happiness and success start with becoming clear about who you are and establishing your authentic identity--inside yourself, and then beyond yourself. In this book, Stedman Graham will show you:
- Why it’s so hard to know yourself - and how to do it anyway
- How your values and attitudes shape your identity
- Why you really can change, no matter what people tell you
- Why we’re all a “work in progress”
- How to be at your best when times are at their worst
- How to choose a dream - and build a team to help you achieve it
- How to find liberation in commitment - in your studies, play, and love
