We all have a narrative that is written for us, or by us. If you don’t know your narrative you can’t change and others don’t have understand your narrative they can’t help you change. We are shaped by our experiences. Our experiences create our stories. Our stories create our identity. Identity shapes our behavior. Our behavior defines our outcome.
