Today’s Book of the Day is Choose Your Story, Change Your Life, written by Kindra Hall in 2022 and published by HarperCollins Leadership.
Kindra Hall is President and Chief Storytelling Officer at Steller Collective, a consulting firm focused on the strategic application of storytelling to today’s communication challenges. She is one of the most renowned keynote speakers, today.
I have chosen this book because I have quite often read Kindra Hall’s books and contributions as well as listening to her speeches and keynotes.
This book is about silencing that negative voice inside you and rewriting your life in the way that most suits who you really are.
One of the things that most people do is to stop being aware of their inner narrative about who they are, what they really want, and what they are capable of. The negative outcome of this is that, even if we are not aware of these “self-narrated” stories, we are always listening to them.
And we believe what we tell about ourselves!
So, if one is not careful, and speaks ill about him/herself, the result will be that one will start behaving accordingly to that daily, continuous, and negative narrative that influences everything one does and is.
Choose Your Story, Change Your Life is one of those books that can literally change your life, by helping you become aware of and control your inner narrative and self-stories. This will let you start creating the life you want and deserve.
Kindra Hall makes an excellent job of mixing state-of-the-art knowledge about psychology and neuroscience with inner work and improvement. All of this by giving practical and effective suggestions on how to silence the inner critic and develop positive, life-changing storytelling.
Reading this book, the readers will learn about:
- how they have created their own life,
- becoming aware of the negative effects of the inner critics,
- identifying the steps needed to create the life they want,
- gaining control of and trust in their inner narrative,
- becoming the positive storyteller of the life you have chosen and the person you really are.
I think that this is an excellent book giving valuable and practical tools to overcome the negative voices speaking ill about us and start achieving and growing in your life. So, it is definitely worth a read!
