It is exactly what you picture. Each one needs to anchor our identity in something – an idea, an ideal, a person, a place, a position.
A person that doesn’t have their identity anchored in something can easily be swayed and might drift unknowingly as the wind and the waves will. It highlights a few ideas:
– Someone without an Identity Anchor will be in Identity Drift – unless they are steaming ahead. But someone drifting cannot help themselves.
– Consequently, if you are able to “move ahead” you don’t need an anchor because you are headed somewhere.
– It almost doesn’t matter what you anchor your identity in. Just anchor your identity to something.
