What’s your story? Do you even know?
Have you taken the time to look at your own story? Ask yourself: what are the biggest triumphs of your story? Find out where the biggest tragedies that you’ve experienced are in your story.
Between the times that you’ve felt the most successful- the times that made you feel the most alive, and the times that you’ve had to deal with your biggest setbacks- the hard circumstances that you’ve had to overcome, you will find your future.
Today’s guest, Paul Angone, is here to reemphasize that it’s okay to not have it all figured out yet. He encourages us to take a look back at the experiences we’ve gone through to help see what we want our future story to look like.
