The only thing we can control is the meaning we give the events of our lives.
I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a big storyteller. I love stories. I love to listen to them, watch them, read them, and then retell them. Storytelling is an art form I admire. A great storyteller is relatable, has charisma, passion and a disarming personality. They captivate you with their words, charm you with their imagination, and keep you eager for more.
So, what does storytelling have to do with your life? Let me explain.
Life, as you see it, know it, experience it, is one big story. In fact, that’s all it is. Your life is a story and you’re a storyteller by nature. You tell stories all day, every day. About yourself, about others, about why, about where, about when, about how.
You operate fully from inside your mind, and your mind adheres to a linear, chronological, reasonable and rational order. It does this to make sense of the world and your purpose in it. It does this to give your life direction.
