The Stories That Rule Us

by | Apr 23, 2023 | Personal Development

“I’m not good at managing my time.”

“I don’t know how to handle my money.”

“I’m bad at relationships.”

We tell ourselves many stories about life. These stories rule us.

Stories can be difficult to overcome. But typically, there’s only one thing standing in the way of overcoming them – a complete and thorough examination of our time, money, relationships, whatever subject we’re stuck on.

We stay in our stories because we’re too scared to look. We don’t want to look at our calendars because we don’t want to own up to double-booking constantly. We don’t want to look at our bills because we’re scared of how much we owe and have in our bank accounts. We don’t want to assess our own behaviors in relationships because we’d rather not be responsible for what didn’t work.

But clarity on where you stand now empowers you to make new decisions that could transform your life incrementally.
