the greatest story I ever told

Have you ever looked in the mirror and saw something that you wish you could change, but you can't?

For me, it's my nose. My hockey days did a number on it. And it's one hockey scar that doesn't help my dating life too much. Regardless, it's my nose. I can't do anything about it. So, I own it all the way. (Ok, I could get surgery. But come on, I'm telling a cute story here alright? Just calm down and enjoy it.)

Fortunately, besides a person's looks, a person can change everything they want about themselves that they don't like - their address, their social circle, their diet, their bad habits, their partners, their jobs, their purpose, ... and yes, even their story.

We tell ourselves stories everyday. Stories to keep us on a certain path in life, stories to keep pushing for a desired result, and stories to keep us from doing something crazy.

"If I quit this job, I won't know what to do."

"If I don't put myself out there, I won't get hurt."

"If I don't do this, I will regret it." (my personal favorite)

Each of these statements are stories we have all told ourselves at one time or another. What do they all have in common? They are all based on whether a person feels if a desired outcome is worth the risk or not. The story you tell yourself helps you make decisions. In reality, the story is the key to any desired transformation.
