Our mind is the most powerful thing we can control. And, yet, if you’re anything like me, you don’t spend nearly enough time training the mind to produce the results you desire. In fact, if things don’t seem to be working well in my life, I tend to be a man who just goes even harder hoping I can drive right through the problems I’m dealing with.
Instead, my guest today, Michael Hyatt, makes the case that the stories and narratives (often subconscious) in our minds actually dictate much of the results we experience. So, today, we dive deep into how to retrain the mind to draft stories that serve us rather than hurt us, the value of listening to the “narrator” of your life, why we should all really listen to the language we’re using, how to interrogate the stories of your life, and create a new, fundamental sense of identity.
“We have to separate what happened from the meaning we assign to what happened.” Tweet That— Michael Hyatt
