We are the Stories We Tell Ourselves

Business of BeliefPeople make their own meaning. We tend to believeĀ and become what we tell ourselves. “We string our situation together into some form of logical script” around the beliefs we have internalized, said Tom Asacker, acclaimed innovation and strategic communications expert. The problem with that is we lock ourselves into a narrative, a path, that limits us. Instead, Asacker advises it’s better to focus on potential, because one step, one action, and the entire narrative is rewritten.

Listen to Tom explain in his own words in this excerpt from a session of ExecuNet Master Class, The Business of Belief.
