“We are the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves.”
From Greek myths to campfire tales, from woven tapestries to Hollywood blockbusters, storytelling is one of the oldest and most celebrated traditions in the history of humankind. We’re no strangers to stories and yet, the most important story in each of our lives is the one we tend to understand the least…. until now!
We’re talking about our Life Story.
The narrative that shapes our identity and belief system as we move through the world. It’s arguably the most important theme we’ve ever explored at Mojo, and the foundation for all our work.
Believe it or not, just about every athlete we’ve ever worked with starts out thinking that they don’t have a ‘life story.’ Or that if they do, it’s surely uninteresting or unimportant. However, with time, patience and curiosity, they start to realise that they’re nothing but stories… and that they get to be both the author and the main character at every step of the way. The same is true all of us.
To be human is to make meaning, for better and for worse. The power is in discovering that your life story is not actually a non-fiction version of events. It’s just your story.
When we can learn to accept, acknowledge and reframe our life experiences from the perspective of our Inner Fan — rather than our Inner Critic — we give ourselves the chance to let go of anything that no longer serves us, and to launch forward into our next chapter from a place of courage and self compassion. Because at the end of the day, it’s not what happens to us in life that matters, but the story that we tell ourselves about it.
How can we begin to make sense of our life story?
There’s no such thing as human being school… but we’re inspired at Mojo to create the next best thing via our Mojo Mindset Masterclasses.
Join us on April 13, 2023 at 7.30pm AEST to learn more about how to identify and make sense of key aspects of your life story. There’s no better place for Mojo members to come and do the work together!
