Own The Narrative Of Your Life
“Tell the narrative that you want to be told about you, don’t let others tell it.”
When you look at your own life, answer this one question: Are you in charge of your own narrative or are you letting others tell it? That is what top podcaster, acclaimed keynote speaker, entrepreneur, and founder of Boss in Heels Heather Monahan’s essential message is in today’s quote. It is our choice to live our lives the way in which we see fit, not someone else’s. They have their own life to live. As I often tell some of my students who have a hard time worrying about themselves at school: Stay in your lane. That is the decision you make each and every day. That decision to worry about yourself while pursuing your hopes and dreams, not someone else’s. We have one life to live. Why waste it living through someone else’s vision as to what they think and feel is what your best life should look like? Take control of that proverbial wheel and show that you are in control of and live by your own moral code and your own beliefs and values. Your story is yours. Yours to own. Yours to live it and most importantly yours to tell it. So be loud and proud. The world’s waiting to see your greatness.
