Sticking labels on people

People become what we label them, especially kids. The kid labelled as clumsy will start tripping over more because they take on that trait. In turn, that reinforces the label and becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
 
The creative one, the academic one, the nervous one, the loud one. It’s said, it sticks, it becomes who we are; part of our identity. 
 
What labels are you carrying around that no longer apply? The organised one. The silly one. The forgetful one. Tear them off and create new ones. Reinvent who you are.
