Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #064 — To be reborn is to become!Back in Episode 25, the idea we played with was “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." AND I still LOVE that quote and that idea. But it's missing something … it's missing the effort that makes the latter so much deeper, richer, and more valuable. It's missing what social psychologist, psychoanalyst, and humanistic philosopher Erich Fromm captured beautifully:"Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is."I love that Fromm says "give birth to himself" because this is no small task … playing with, leaning into, accepting, and owning the truth of our "why," the reason we were born, is an effortful and effort-rich process and not for the faint of heart.That epiphany is proceeded by what can feel like labor and delivery … emerging as if we were being born into the light, into our new truth, into our new world. It is only from that rebirth that we can become our best selves, step into our most authentic selves, and live into — and exceed — our potential.What awaits on the other side of rebirth?

Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #064 — To be reborn is to become!

Back in Episode 25, the idea we played with was “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” AND I still LOVE that quote and that idea. But it’s missing something … it’s missing the effort that makes the latter so much deeper, richer, and more valuable. It’s missing what social psychologist, psychoanalyst, and humanistic philosopher Erich Fromm captured beautifully:

“Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is.”

I love that Fromm says “give birth to himself” because this is no small task … playing with, leaning into, accepting, and owning the truth of our “why,” the reason we were born, is an effortful and effort-rich process and not for the faint of heart.

That epiphany is proceeded by what can feel like labor and delivery … emerging as if we were being born into the light, into our new truth, into our new world. It is only from that rebirth that we can become our best selves, step into our most authentic selves, and live into — and exceed — our potential.

What awaits on the other side of rebirth?
