The majority of people, who want to establish their identity or maybe even want anew, one, don’t have any idea how to do it. You have to think about your morals, values, anything that means a lot to you. Kishore exclaimed: “To change your personal identity or to create a new one, first decide who you are and what you want to be known for and then to make sure every step you take is consistent with that image.” (Kishore, 2012) Therefore you have to think about how you want others to see you and how you want to present yourself. Do you want to be known as a hard worker, care-free or maybe you want others to admire you? Nevertheless you shouldn’t want to be seen as a bad person or in other words have a bad reputation because important things such as having a job can be affected or hindered by that. At the end of the day, you are the only who really cares about your identity. You should be satisfied and content with your choices. For teenagers, this is when you start thinking about what you want and who you want to be but it can become very difficult to make decisions due to your peers or possibly even parents but with a little help and searching you can find who you want to be. As Graham says on his book Identity: Your passport to Success: “Lessons provide teenagers with the means to boost self-esteem, avoid peer pressure, and handle the daily stresses that come with being a young adult. With the Nine Steps to support them, teens will find and follow their own road to success – with conviction, perseverance, and pride.” (Graham, 2012)
