The stories we tell ourselves have a tendency to shape everything we experience. They influence how we view things, how we feel about the world around us and are the lens through which life takes shape. Understanding your own story - and through coaching, perhaps altering how you tell it - is a powerful tool to make use of.
I’ve decided to tell my own story in this blog post, to help illustrate this. Grab and brew and put your feet up - it’s a longer-than-usual read…! Once you’ve reached the end of my tale I’d really encourage you to write your own. My suggestions for how to do this are at the bottom. Enjoy!
