Season 6, Episode 3: Change Your Story, Change Your Life [Podcast]

It’s Not What Happens to You But How You Interpret What Happens to You

Welcome to Season 6, Episode 3 of the This Is Your Life podcast. In this episode, Michele Cushatt and I discuss how we can take control of our lives by taking contour of our stories.

Episode 3

The stories we tell ourselves about what has happened to us shape our lives. But are we aware that we have the power to interpret those stories in ways that help rather than hinder us? Many people aren’t, but today we explain how we can take control of our stories—and our lives.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • Why the stories we tell ourselves have such power over our professional and personal lives.
  • How to take the stories you tell yourself and transform them into empowering narratives.
  • The power of objectifying our inner dialogues so we can critique and change them.
  • How a change in perspective can turn liabilities into assets.
  • What happens in our life if we don’t take control of our stories.
