After the unbeatable, I can’t do this/ I can’t make it/It is too big for me.
These are the other not so obvious that can ruin your life and your business too:
I’m going to be successful (when you are making success equivalent to be a celebrity)
I’m going to win
I’m going to be the best
I will be rich
These stories poison us because we never have enough of them. How much recognition, wins, and money will make us feel that we finally got there? Most of the time we always feel that it is not enough.
There is nothing bad about wanting money, be the best or win, but these stories leave us in solitude, don’t connects us to other people. And at the end of the day, nobody cares about you being rich, successful or the best.
How it would be if we turn these stories around:
I want people to be successful
I want to help people to achieve what they want in life
I want to help people to make the best product and service, to make their best contribution
I want people to have equal access to opportunities and fair salaries for their work.
When we commit to stories that don’t talk about ourselves, we have better chances of making wiser choices in life and in business.
