Love #1. It is the power of the stories we tell ourselves that determine who we become.

 

"1. Remember self-doubt is a story.

As Davidson said, thinking you’re not good at something doesn’t make it true. Her art teacher triggered her self-doubt, but it was the stories spinning in Davidson’s mind that stopped her from creating. And these disempowering tales were clearly distorted."

Damariz TrèsPositive Winborne's curator insight, March 2, 2013 1:45 PM

Have you ever felt like a ship at sea without a destination plan? I mean ... like you are "just existing" and life really doesn't have a meaning??? I would venture to say "feeling that way" is an indication that you probably don't have a "compass" for your life -- a directional instrumental that let's you know when (and if) you have strayed off course. You're on a journey -- this thing we call life -- but you don't have a plan. Without a plan, you can get turnaround and sometimes discover that you have lost yourself in the process of living. I have found that a life plan is a wonderful tool! It is filled with your hopes, dreams and desires; it is centered around YOU. With a life plan as a guide, life is filled with bliss!!
