Don’t believe lies told to you based on past events. Show yourself the evidence from the present that proves your version.
The stories people tell you about yourself can keep you trapped in a prison of an outdated identity. You don’t have to believe them.
We like to think we know what motivates us, but any reason we give is simply a made-up story that’s often a lie. The truth is far more complicated.
The story we tell about an experience becomes our experience. How is your story serving you?
What story are you believing, who is telling it, and what if it’s not the full story?
Sometimes what holds us back most is the rules of the game, especially the rules we created.
We can use stories to empower or defeat, to encourage or deflate, to elevate or detract.
