The stories we tell ourselves

Posted by Kelly Lewis Share Your Voice

"How do 12 different leaders read the same document and feel 12 different emotions?" and "How do 30 students hear the same words, from the same person, and respond 30 different ways?"

Could it be that as people (aka "meaning making machines"), we create "stories" to understand what is happening to us, around us, within us and sometimes those stories help us create what we want (the green path) and other times our stories hinder us from creating what we want (the red path).

And could developing greater awareness give us the choice to consciously decide?
