We all have one.
As a matter of fact, most of us have several different stories.
We have stories that we share with our family and friends.
We have stories that we share with our co-workers and colleagues.
We have stories that we share with complete strangers.
We have stories that we use to determine our emotional response to money, to health, to technology, and even love.
Many of the stories we replay in our head are untrue.
The stories are based on perspectives built up over time that provides a distorted memory of yesterday and fills us with fear of today.
The fear to be vulnerable.
The fear to connect.
The fear to trust oneself.
The fear of losing control.
The fear of losing what we believe we have in the present.
The wonderful thing is that the same stories can be erased, rewritten, reworked, and told from a different perspective.
A perspective that enables our ability to change how we think, react, and feel.
To create a story that gives us the permission to spit in the face of fear and to walk in the light of endless possibilities.
I choose to tell myself stories filled with endless possibilities.
What story do you choose to tell yourself?
Stories happen at the N of 1.
