The story at the moment is not good.
We certainly can’t “distort reality” and make things better. That would be ludicrous, dangerous and irresponsible.
And yet, we can become, even in these torrid times, much more aware of the stories we tell ourselves.
I initially hesitated to send this fortnightly video out with all that’s going on around us.
At the same time, it’s probably important to stop and reflect on your leadership and your headspace more than ever at the moment.
I might be proved terribly wrong but at the moment the story I’ve decided to tell myself goes a little bit like this:
“It’s going to get tough, really tough”.
“It’s about time we did more virtual training anyway”.
“How can we use the space (no face-to-face workshops) to provide something special to our clients, that we would never have had the time to do so”.
“When we do come out the other side, our business, our team, and our partnerships with people will be stronger than ever”.
Is that true?
I don’t know.
But it’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
In this video, I unpack the typical way we tell ourselves stories, the behaviours that follow and the results that ensue.
The message is simple:
CHANGE YOUR STORY. CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
Want to take yourself, your business, your team, your family, your community to new heights? It starts with reflecting on the current stories you’re telling yourself AND THEN mustering up the courage you’ll need to change them.
Here’s a simple technique you can apply.
