Those who do not have power over the story that dominates their lives, the power to retell it, rethink it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as times change, truly are powerless, because they cannot think new thoughts. —Salman Rushdie
We are all born story tellers. We tell stories about our life, our families, our careers, our present, past and future, where we came from and where we are going. We learn, socialize and communicate by sharing stories, funny stories, sad stories, angry stories, happy stories. Our stories are how we creatively convert our lives into more powerful and meaningful experiences. However if we tell our selves the same small limiting story, then we will live a small limiting life.
What are some of the stories we tell ourselves?
• I have no choice.
• It’s just the way things are
• Why does this always happen to me?
• I am just not lucky enough.
• I just keep attracting the same type of partner in my relationships.
Are you sick and tired of hearing yourself repeat the same excuses and justifications all rolled up into a tiring storyline?
Don’t you wish you could just get rid of the old worn out script?
Are you ready to let go of the drama?
