“Who are you?” is the fundamental question of your identity, and your identity is a collection of stories that you are telling or that others are telling about you. Everyone is a collection of stories, and not everyone’s story begins in a positive place.
Many stories begin in a place of hurt or trauma.
Others have a more ordinary story, which can be profound in its own way. I’m a … [husband / wife / doctor / construction worker.]
Some let their stories limit themselves in ways they aren’t even away of. A friend once told me he wasn’t able to sell, because, “I’m British, and that’s not what we do.”
He had a story about being British. That wasn’t his story. It was a story someone else told him, and this story stopped him from living as he liked.
What if you could re-write your stories? What if you could turn painful memories into sources of power?
You can, and in fact many already have.
Gorilla Mindset was a major success, and it’s has a long-awaited sequel on the way.

There’s a concept in The Mind’s I and Gödel, Escher, Bach known as a strange loop.
