This week from My Life Sherpa: Our Story

We are who we think we are.  

At a young age, or at some point in our developments, we subconsciously labeled ourselves. We let someone, or some event in our life, define us.  We let our circumstances become our life long ceiling to change and growth.  The chapter we are currently in doesn’t have to be our life long narrative.  It can be just a chapter…but we must first understand that we really can be the author.

For example, we may think to ourselves, “I will always be fat because I just have a slow metabolism”.  Or because of the situation we were born into, we may think “I will always be poor”. Whatever it is, this story will continue as long as we allow it to.

To grow and overcome our ceiling, we must first identify it.  We can’t heal a problem without first identifying it.  My experience and observations have been that when people take the time to truly look at their life long behaviors, this subconscious story becomes conscious. Change becomes possible.

Once identified, we can begin to exercise our minds towards a new life story.  Those who breakthrough, those who become the person they want to become, do so because they have to.  It becomes their new standard, it becomes their new story.  They won’t accept anything else.  

The pull of our future must always be greater than the pull of our past. Having a crystal clear understanding of what we want gives us the GAS (Give A Sh*t) we will need to push through.  We get the things we want.

Who do you want to be?  It’s never too late.
