Stories... a narrative, an account of incidents or events in someone's life or in the evolution of something.
Stories are constantly evolving in our lives, every day is filled with stories, some are new and unfolding in this moment and some resurface from our past, our stories can also be triggers for joy and pain.
Our stories are powerful they can inspire, motivate, encourage, and transform lives when others can relate or find themselves in your experiences. Our stories can also disempower, and lead us down a path that breeds discouragement and discontentment. These are the stories we tell ourselves (and others) when our insecurities rise up or we don’t feel worthy. As painful as some of my own stories are, I have chosen to make a conscious decision every day (every moment) to not allow them to consume me or my energy, I know how easy it is to become lost in my past and lose focus on my future. I choose to allow my stories to fuel my passion and inspire others.
Use your story to catapult you to the next level.
Stories create community, enable us to see through the eyes of other people, and open us to the claim of others. (Pete Forbes)
