When was the last time you stopped long enough to consider who you really are? Because some of us have had to assume so many different roles in our lives, there may be times when we must step back in order to recollect who we really are.

What’s Your Story?

(Part 2 of 2)

So, what’s your story? Think about it for a moment. Pretend it is being played on a wide screen in HD. Sit back and observe the story – the moves, the plays, the words and the plot. At the end of the story, ask yourself, “Is this story serving me well?” “Does it hold me back or move me forward in an empowering way?’ The process may take a little time, but you might find it is well worth your effort. Perhaps you will discover it is time to shift your story’s perspective or maybe you will uncover validation that it is a perspective which you should cling to because of its enduring value to who you are.
You should also understand your story impacts your relationships. A clergy friend of mine tells me that during pre-marriage counseling, he will often ask the couple to tell their story to each other. He said he does that because “many times one has never heard the others’ story. And each individual’s story is important to that relationship.”
Here are some additional questions you might ask in determining the impact of your story on your life:

What’s Your Story?

(Part 1 of 2)

Between exercise repetitions at my gym last week, I paused to catch my breath as we exercise enthusiasts normally do between reps. After what must have been an unusually long pause, I heard a cheerful voice speaking to me. It was that of a gym member on the Shoulder Press next to me. In a very concerned manner, he said, “Come back. You’re getting too caught up in the story.” His words jolted me back into the present moment. I slowly turned to him, smiled and said, “You’re probably right.” Of course he was right. I was deeply immersed in a story. Later, I would recall his words as I thought to myself, “Everyone has a story.” No doubt, you have often heard it asked, “What is your story?” or “What is his or her story anyway?”

What Do You Want Most In Life?

What do you want most in your life? I am discovering more and more each day the critical importance of my response to that question. I am also uncovering how closely aligned my wants are to my core values. If my wants, wishes and desires are tied to my values, the odds of my achieving them are pretty high. I get seriously motivated and my confidence level soars also.

Like me, perhaps a big challenge for you when setting goals is trying to determine what you really want. Sometimes it’s a little confusing, isn’t it?
Have you ever taken the time to ask yourself,

Uncovering Your High Self Esteem

High self esteem is connected to your sense of personal worth and value.
