Changing Our Internal Narrative

“Changing our internal narrative is as important as understanding the tools and tactics that are available to us.” — Seth Godin


I love this quote by Seth Godin. It reminds me of the sayings that change begins within and that change begins with me.

I am ready for a change, and came to France to significantly shift my outer environment. Being in a decidedly foreign environment without the distractions of home is providing the means for me to get quiet enough to hear my inner voice. I have a clear sense of my skills, knowledge and abilities. Less clear are the places where I might hold myself back unwittingly.

Sitting at the beach, watching the blue of the Mediterranean, I am beginning to hear my internal narrative, the story I tell myself about who I am, what I can have, what I can do and what I can be. Once I have the story, I can make informed, conscious decisions.
