“The myth of personal freedom—the idea that you are at liberty to pick whatever path in life you want—is the unspoken agony of the modern person. It ignores the fact that life has order, and that order bears heavily upon your choices—on what makes sense to do with the time you have. The good news is that although you can’t be anything you want to be, you have more potential than you know.

The order in life that affects us all is contained in a code, the identity code. Much like our biological genetic code, our identity code is born into each of us, providing a complete map of how we, as human beings, are designed to function—of how we are supposed to live—when we are living according to who we are. Within the framework your identity provides, life’s seeming boundaries melt away. Genuine freedom is yours.

Crack your identity code and the contours of your life will shift. You will not only come out stronger, you will come out larger. Larger in heart, larger in influence, larger in your capacity to love and be loved.”
