709 | You Never See Their Actual Wins show art 709 | You Never See Their Actual Wins

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a message I heard last week and it sparked my thinking.  You never actually see a person’s wins, you only see what you think their wins are.  “When we fail to acknowledge and celebrate small victories, we get discouraged and the flame inside us starts to dwindle.” “Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more.” “If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.” ~ Louis L'Amour In this episode, we discuss:  1)  Never underestimate all the...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share the quote I came across last week, The Persian poet Hafiz said, “The words we speak become the house we live in.”  Our words and thoughts are creating our beliefs which are creating our world. In this episode, we discuss:  1) Our words have the power to build people up and give them life or tear people down and bring them death. The words we speak can inspire and encourage others while, in the same sentence, deflating and discouraging ourselves and others.  The words you speak become the house you build and the house you live in, it is...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to share a few stories about holding the vision and how long you can hold the vision, no one can hold it for you, and no one can see it for you that it will make up for lack of belief in yourself.  “Dreams have no limits. Only in our commitment to fulfilling our dreams, do we realize our potential” ~ unknown.  In this episode, we discuss:  1)  The vision is for you because there is a future version of you who already has this vision, she is already holding it and already celebrating it, it is not an accident or a coincidence.

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to share our perspective and how when you change the meaning you change the story.  In this episode, we discuss:  1)  You can’t change your story until you change what you think things mean.  Perspective creates meaning, meaning creates emotion, and the quality of our life is the quality of our emotions. It’s not the events of our life that are the finest it is the meaning that we make or take from them. 2)   It’s the meaning that we take away from those events that change us, go back to your most difficult experiences and how can you...

In this episode, I am sharing the idea of writing your story.  This journey of writing 7 years ago and I could never have imagined it would lead to this place of helping others to learn how to share and write their stories too. 

So you have had this dream of becoming a published author but have no clue of where to start? Here are a few tips I wanted to share.

In this episode we discuss: 

1)  Who is going to benefit from your story?  Who are you speaking to?   It actually isn’t about us, that was a huge eye opener when I was writing my story. 

2)  Why are you being called to write?  Can you write from a place of integrity about your story? What is being shared, what is off limits, what are the readers' takeaways?

3) What are the turning points in your story?  This is where I was, this is what happened, and this is where I am now.  Such a simple step process but that’s the general breakdown.  You are the hero of your own story and that is what you are being called to share.

4) So if it is such a great idea then why don’t people do it?  If you are ready to write your collaborative chapter or to dive into your solo book, I invite you to send me a quick email or book a discovery call to see if you’d like to join me in writing your book alongside me this year. https://calendly.com/mvanwyn761/discoverycall
