|“We need stories. . .they are a fundamental unit of knowledge, the foundation of memory, essential to the way we make sense of our lives: the beginning, middle and end of our personal and collective trajectories.”|
I have some exciting news…
and as a steadfast subscriber to my weekly inspirational JOLTs, I wanted you to know first.
My next book, The Back Forty: 7 Essential Embraces to Launch a Radical Second Half will be available for pre-order beginning next week. Please be on the lookout for it!
What does that news have to do with the power of stories? Let me tell you.
Would you agree that stories have the power to move us into amazing new directions and feats of seeming impossibility, creating new worlds and overcoming tremendous obstacles? Think of the historical stirring speeches of Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill, to name a few.
Or, think of stories you read as a child that stuck with you and impacted your life, or a story you read yesterday on social media that you’ve already shared with others.
If you agree with the incredible power of stories, then I’ll ask you this: What effect do the constant stories you tell yourself about yourself have on you??
You’re very used to those stories, many have them have stuck with you since childhood, and you likely even shared one with someone yesterday.
And, very often, those stories limit you and what’s possible for your second half/best half of life!
Got your attention? I hope so. . .and I’m itching to share this book with you that has been years in the making.
So, please keep a heads up for next week’s notice for when the new book will be available for pre-order because, besides the launch of new stories of possibility for yourself and your life, there will be some super extraordinary bonuses available with your pre-order purchase (truly AMAZING values added simply to the early-bird price of your books).
Thanks for being a loyal subscriber. . .and let’s get ready to launch not only a coming New Year but a whole new Back Forty possibility for our lives ahead.
