The Daily Groove - by Scott Noelle.

THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle

:: The Power of Story (Part 1) ::

Children love stories for their power to evoke
creation:  Stories told with conviction inspire
imaginary worlds that feel real and shape one's
sense of truth.
Anytime you talk *about* anything, you are in essence
telling a story that "in-forms" your world...
 * You tell a story when someone asks you,
    "How've you been?"
 * You tell a story whenever you chat with
    your friends about how difficult or easy
    it is to parent your child.
 * You tell yourself stories when you recall
    good or bad memories, worry about tomorrow,
    anticipate fun, etc.
Whatever story or theme you repeat most often becomes
the story of your life. That means you can change your
life by changing your story!
Today, pay attention to what you say -- to your child,
yourself, and others -- and ask yourself, "If this
were a story, what kind of story would it be?
How do I feel when I tell this story?"

:: The Power of Story (Part 2) ::

In Part 1 looked at
how you create the story of your life through your
personal narrative: the things you think and say
*about* your life.
So when some aspect of your life feels like a grind,
you can transform it into a groove by changing the
stories you tell about it.
But this only works if you *believe* your groovy new
stories, so it's best to change them *gradually*. For
example, if you realize you're running a story like...
    "I always get into power struggles with
    my child."'s not believable to change it immediately to...
    "Our relationship is perfectly harmonious."
A more believable new story would be...
    "We used to fight a lot, but I finally
    surrendered to Love -- I decided that I'd
    rather feel good than be 'right' -- and now,
    every day, little by little, I discover new
    ways to create harmony."
In other words, you can change your life by telling
a story about changing!
