"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - Maya Angelou
Whether we like it or not, we become the stories we tell ourselves.
Studies have demonstrated that the inner narratives we assign ourselves have a tremendous impact on our mindset, emotional state and how we present ourselves to others. The bad news is that many of us are telling ourselves the wrong story!
Have you ever thought:
Then chances are that you are deceiving yourself with your own story. It's time to break this self-limiting cycle with a narrative reset!
Grab a mirror and join us to expose the voices that hold you back from seeing your true, honest-to-goodness self. With probing questions and interactive exercises, our speaker, Chrislyn Choo, will draw upon her experience in film and neuroscience to help you visualize the paradoxes in your personal narrative and generate clarity and movement to live out your most authentic story.
Through this workshop you will:
* Become more aware of your limiting beliefs and identify where they come from
* Hone and communicate your personal value proposition (PVP) with confidence
* Identify your next best steps to live in alignment with your values and convictions
What to bring?
Nothing but pen and paper!
