The Power of Story

January 29, 2018

During my workshop on 1/14/18 I spoke about one of my biggest breakthroughs during the 3-part transformational training workshop. The catalyst was a distinction that is taught during the first workshop about Fact vs Interpretation and how we create stories based on our interpretation and through those, we create meaning. This "meaning-making" is a critical component of authoring our experience.

 

Our interpretations determine whether something is positive or negative and shape our perspectives and world-view. In this personal share, I illustrate how the stories and interpretations I made up regarding my mother's passing were not supporting me and how, under my own volition, I created new interpretations that propelled me forward to become the man I always wanted to be: someone dedicated to service, focusing out on helping others and being an extension or continuation of my mother's legacy of teaching and serving our communities.
