My last post, “How Your Flat-Tire Stories Change Your Life,” made the point that the story of your life is made up of your responses to your unexpected flat-tire events.
A Flat-Tire As A Metaphor
A “flat-tire” is a metaphor for some unexpected occurrence that intrudes into your ordinary life and forces you to respond somehow.
Our lives our filled with flat-tires. But is every flat-tire an event that triggers some sort of change in your life? It depends on whether your flat-tire is an occurrence or an event.

How can you change your life when you go through life with the same nagging thoughts? “Will I ever get it put together?” “What must I do to change my life?” “Will I truly live before I die?”
When you feel stuck and struggling, and nothing you do ever seems to make a difference, it’s time to set yourself free from old belief systems based on traditional stories and inherited family stories.
The most powerful transformation process to change your life is to replace the stories you inherited and replace those stories with authentic life stories.

Do the traditional stories that rule your life allow you to be true to yourself? For many of us, the stories we tell ourselves are not authentic stories, because they do not emerge from knowledge of our authentic selves.
Instead, they are traditional stories, based on family stories, passed through the generations. They are stories based on conventional wisdom within our cultural, national, and ethnic groups. They are stories based on religious beliefs.
We inherit these traditional stories as they are passed down through families, cultures, nations, and religions. One of the strongest themes of these inherited stories is obedience to authority.

The Power Of Story
What is the power of story to rule your life?
Belief systems begin with stories. Stories answer life’s biggest questions. The most important function of stories is to answer the question “why?”
Why Stories Are The Greatest Teachers
Stories are the greatest teachers of your life because they tell you what’s important, they teach you who you are, and they teach you how you are to live.
This means that identifying the stories you live by is the key to the power to change your life.

It’s that time of year again. It’s the New Year, a time when most of us resolve that this year will be different. This is the year that we will finally make more money, get out of debt, lose weight, exercise more, eat better, read books, write books, mend broken relationships…the list goes on and on.
And each year, the hope-filled resolutions don’t last very long. Why? Is it lack of discipline? Lack of resolve? Were the plans too big? Something wrong with our mindsets? Our emotions? Our skills?
Maybe the real problem lies elsewhere.
