Check your stories
Learn to recognise the limiting stories you’re telling yourself, the stories that move you away from being the best version of yourself.
Storytelling is a fundamental part of being human. We have been telling stories for as long as we’ve been communicating.
Stories can help us make sense of the world, understand ourselves and others. Think about creation and origin stories like the ones told by Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the 100 or so mythologies from around the world.
Stories can help us to define who we are and create a roadmap to lead us to the best version of ourselves, identifying opportunities as well as potential hazards to avoid along the way.
And it is our stories that create our feelings, and our feelings that create our responses to the situations we face.
By controlling your stories, you are more likely to be able to have more control over your feelings, and therefore more control over how you respond.
And while this is a very simple idea, again backed by decades of research, it takes consistent, and deliberate practice, and a commitment to being the best version of ourselves.
