We tell stories all the time. Stories are how we communicate. We have stories of how smart we are. Stories of where we are going, where we have been and where we are right now. We have different stories of our life depending on who is our audience and what impression we want the audience to have.
We also have stories we tell ourselves where we are the only audience. This is where our choice of stories affects what we do right now. If we tell ourselves stories of failure, embarrassment, what we lack or what is not possible then we will act it out after all it is our story and we are the storyteller.
Our stories are not complete tales but chosen fragments of our life and circumstances to support the meaning we wish to give the story we have chosen. Our past is a story as is our future.
As we are the storyteller it is our choice of what stories we use.
Do your stories support you or hinder you?
