We all tell ourselves stories and attach meaning to events in our lives. These stories determine how we respond to people and events—either positively or negatively. The stories you tell about your circumstances and challenges affect how you remember the past, experience the present, and direct your future.
What is your story? Does it support you and help you on and off the job or is it one of struggle? Does it empower you and put you in control of your life or does it portray you as a victim?
