Way back when my kids were toddlers, I told myself a story. And it was a story I loved to hear. So, I repeated it pretty much every day. And this past week I saw a blurb about a book that described my little habit as a self story. Obviously it’s the one you tell yourself. But, sadly, too many stories are negative.
My self story was a totally clear vision in my head.
I had what most would describe as a successful job. Then I had a successful business. But the kind of success I’m talking about was purely financial. Which is good, but not necessarily healthy.
I’m not complaining. Far from it. Because I gained more experience and knowledge in the every days ups and downs that most MBA graduates will ever know.
But my life in the corporate world, and in the hectic world of real estate entrepreneurship was a drain to my soul. Because I had three small children. And I didn’t want their formative years to pass me by while I spent my days (and even some nights) “at the office.”
So, my ongoing self story was a Vision of me working from home. Building a client base on my terms and my time. And every day I’d get that clear picture of me in my home office. Sitting at my own desk. On my own phone. And making my own calls and appointments.
That little book blurb I read said, “Most of the self-stories you tell yourself, the kind of person you say you are and the things you are capable of, are invisible to you. Because they have become such a part of your everyday mental routine that you don’t even recognize they exist.”
I definitely believe that’s true.
And the blurb continued with, “Yet, these self-stories influence everything you do, everything you say, and everything you are.”
And I bet you know, at least somewhere inside you, that’s true. Right?
What you tell yourself, about yourself, can make a huge difference in your life. For the better. Or for the worse. So, I’d say your self story is pretty darn important. Wouldn’t you?
I agree with the author of that book. You’re gonna have to take complete control of your self story, if you hope to create the life you’ve always dreamed about. And you could dive into the psychological neuroscience of it all, if that’s your preference.
But I like to keep things simple.
Because it’s too easy to make things too difficult. Know what I mean?
You could work on uncovering the the truth of how you created the life you have now. And you could “challenge everything you think you know about how your life has been built.” But I believe you can skip the whole going over the past stuff. And simply make a decision. Decide to write a better self story. Starting today. Right now. Decide to move toward that Vision you create. And take your first step toward it today.
Your first step doesn’t have to be my RondaReady System Book. But it’s an excellent first step if you need help to define and focus on your Vision. And it helps you go forward in the direction that’s right for YOU. Plus, the book contains a complete System to help you RUN your business.
My RondaReady System has helped bunches and bunches of business owners publish their self story and build their businesses better and faster. And that helped them make more money and have more freedom. And many of them say they wish they had started sooner.
By the way, your System book is available on Amazon.
The $115 price ($100 for the Kindle version) is a small investment compared to what my one-on-one clients have paid me. Especially when you consider how it can pay for itself over and over. But, it’s for go-getters who wanna go way past starting business.
So, if that’s you, use this link to get yourself a copy on Amazon. I don’t guarantee your success. No one can do that. But it IS a powerful way to help go-getters get going. Is that YOU? Then, go get it, and…
