What do you typically say when you are introduced to new people? "Hi, I am [insert name + all your roles and accomplishments.]" All great, yes, but is that really who you are?

One thing about me: I love "I am" statements. They're some of the most powerful words you can ever say, sort of like casting mini magical spells. Be careful what you say after "I am" -- but also be sure not to hide in "I am."

I recently had the opportunity to question my typical "I am" statements that I tend to give upon meeting new friends. (PS: Hi, new friends!) I hope you take a look at where I'm going with this and who I am...and embrace who you are as well.
