Who you are (your essence, your energy)—all that makes and shapes you lies in your story. The story you tell about yourself and to yourself (your beliefs about yourself). Your story either builds you or it stifles you. Either way, YOU are the creator, writer, and producer of your story and therefore, you ultimately hold the power.
Have you ever considered how big your story is and how it impacts your future?
Have you thought about the momentum of energy you're building for yourself?
You know, every time you tell it, you are directing your energy in some way for later days. Like a bank account, every time you tell it, you're making a deposit. What exactly are you trying to grow?
Is your story (your life experience or situation) an excuse? Have you simply gotten comfortable with telling it?
How you choose to think about your own life and how you choose to share it and feel about it is either moving forward in life or…it’s what’s keeping you STUCK.
The POWER of your story is in how YOU CHOOSE To move its energy…
Will you put the energy (the power) behind how it shaped you…how your story propelled you?
Will you put the power behind its excuse and in being STUCK?
Will you choose to let it grip you? Keep a hold on you?
If you’re STUCK and want to get the hell out of STUCK, consider changing your perspective about your story. (Read that again because that one simple sentence can literally rock your world!)
If you can change how you feel about your story… then it will POSITIVELY change your life.
Don’t get me wrong, this has NOTHING to do with liking the story… it has do with what YOU MAKE OF IT.
Change how you feel and perceive your own story AND YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR DESTINY in business and in LIFE.
Keep sharing your story...
Keep sharing your experience…
BUT, share it in a way to help others heal and learn from your experience.
Share it to raise others up.
Share it to teach and help others overcome.
Share it to heal and help free others of pain.
Share it and you’ll naturally give others permission to share their story, too.
When you acknowledge your story you help others acknowledge theirs, too and move the energy toward healing, toward freedom…and AWAY from the grip it may have on you.
Your story (your life experiences) are meant FOR you and you hold the power to USE IT to help others (including yourself). This puts you in the driver’s seat—it puts YOU in control. Using your story to empower yourself and others as a way to heal expands the healing. Each time you help another with your story… you continue the expansion.
Look to some of the greatest leaders and Master teachers for inspiration:
Dr. Dyer was an orphan and a recovering alcoholic. Is this the story we remember him by? Surely not. It’s his higher self, author and spiritual guru that we remember and love. It’s his story of inspiration and love and his real power to help others to change their thoughts, change their life.
Louise ran away form an impoverished and abusive home, but it’s in her overcoming and healing that has helped millions around the globe to also heal themselves and their bodies because she was able to turn struggle into power through love.
What these great teachers did was literally TRANSMUTE the energy of the experience(s) they had and used it to create something greater. They created something that served not only themselves but the millions of people they touched, as well.
This is beyond positive thinking and WISHING for something better. Wishing certainly won’t get you there, however, EXPANDING YOUR CAPACITY and strength and understanding for whatever happened in the past (or for what's happening now, for that matter) and using it for the greater good, WILL get you to a better place, including a place of ABUNDANCE AND PROSPERITY.
No matter your position, circumstances, or opportunities in life, you always have the freedom of mind to choose how you experience, INTERPRET, and ultimately SHAPE YOUR WORLD. —Brendon Burchard
Here’s a little secret I’ve learned along the way…
There is real joy in creating and achieving a better life for yourself. DUH...ok, that's obvious. But here's the thing to remember, it’s always MORE about the journey getting there…and the immense joy in helping others, too.
Sure…people will celebrate your success…but you’ll find yourself talking more and more about your new story about HOW you rose up and what you learned along the way.
Your NEW story will eventually overtake the OLD story.
You can and will create a NEW NORM…A NEW REALITY for you.
Take a moment to be fully present with where you are.
What have you learned?
What are you presently learning?
What more do you have to learn?
Why is this helping you?
What’s good about it?
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE the art of pivoting your mind to greater and deeper understanding and trust that it will come to you.
You’ll find yourself moving out of Stuck…even if only by an inch (but at least you’re an inch ahead more than you were before).
SUCCESS for many began with their story.
Their story exposed them for WHO THEY REALLY ARE.
It exposed their CAPACITY.
It revealed their ability to OVERCOME.
It opened new realities, experiences, inspiration and ideas.
It gave them success because they chose to use it and succeed because of it.
There is such BRILLIANT ENERGY when we connect with the expansive capacity of humans. We are amazing!
Working with heart centered entrepreneurs is one of my greatest pleasures. It’s in their stories, their message, their ability to teach and heal and help others that makes working and supporting them so empowering and inspiring.
Be gentle with yourself. Give yourself time to cry, to be angry, to be sad…to be whatever you have to be…but then use it for the greater good that can come of it. It’s how you can be a change agent…and a healer. The world needs you.
WHAT can you do to tell a different story???
