Identity & 3Bs

Your identity refers to the elements of you that develop over time in response to the external world and your journey through that world.

The three elements or layers that make up your identity are called the three Bs: Behaviors, Beliefs, and Belongings.

These three Bs surround your personality - the natural traits and characteristics of your true self. Your behaviors, beliefs, and belongings have the power to support your personality or to mask it.

For example, if you have adopted your three Bs to please others, then chances are that they don't support your personality (and may be why you're stuck somewhere in your life).

If, in contrast, your three Bs have developed as a natural extension of your personality, then they most likely do support your personality (and help you move forward in your life).
