What Story Are You Telling Yourself?

Everyone has a story!

You know the one you tell over and over in your head and/or tell to others?

Most people are not even aware they are doing this because the program is
running below the radar or the conscious mind. So, it’s become a HABIT!

As a matter of fact, you can have several stories, but ultimately they ALL go
back to one main theme which results in failure to accomplish what you want
in life.

There are at least two things that helped us create our story at a very young age.
The first is the things we were told to us by our parents, siblings, relatives, friends,
teachers, etc. And the second is our experiences we had and the conclusions we
drew from them. This formed our beliefs and thus our story.

Some of the stories people tell are:
* I don’t have time because…
* I could never do that
* I can’t afford to…
* Things never work out for me…
* I’m always to last one to…
* Oh, my aching back, knees, etc.
* I can never make ends meet
* I’ll do it tomorrow
* No one would be interested in me
* I’m just not smart enough or good enough to…

And the list goes on.

Every time you say those things, YOU are literally PULLING all those things
to you! You are claiming them! And when you do this, it stands in the way
of your success. Think about it! What falls from your lips becomes your reality!

And yes, I understand! You feel like you can’t afford…whatever, because you have
NO money today.

STOP repeating the bad stuff and change your story!


Be aware of what you are saying to yourself and others. Change the words you use.
When you change the words, it changes your vibration. And you will be amazed at
the change that will come into your life!

    What falls from your lips becomes your reality!

    Love that quote Carol, so true.

    Hey Carol,

    Thanks for the great information. It really does come down to negative self talk. We need to change what we tell ourselves or “our story” in order to change our lives.

    Thanks again!

    Great article Carol! If nothing is changing in your life then it’s time to tell a different stoALLV

    Very true Carol.

    People have to break free of what they were taught to believe and show them who and what they can be.

    Negativity breeds negativity.

    What you have shared is so very true,,,reminded me of a post I did a month ago


    “The Movie that plays predominantly in your head either propels & promotes you to success or pulls you down & prevents you from achieving success.”(Matt)

    What a great post. Many people need to understand the language they speak everyday all day.

    I find it amazing that many people don’t want to hear/read this type of information over and over but are willing to spew the negative 1,000 times a minute.

    Keep it coming!
