…today’s secret…we become what we tell ourselves.
You’re committed to helping those who have little hope…
…this is hard given the little time you have.
People listen and remember stories long after statistics and bullet-points are forgotten.
In 1790 the United States held its first census, only about 7 generations ago.
The total population of the United States then was slightly smaller than metropolitan Atlanta, slightly larger than modern Detroit.
Early on these few Americans told stories about an American way of life that could be the envy of the world. “Come here, discover for yourself.”
Today, Americans tell stories of discord and discontent. These stories seem to be un-selling the earlier American optimism stories.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
The marginalized participants you are working with have a story inside their head. Their story is what has made them what they are.
Take a moment this coming Independence Day week to find a good story about America.
Then, take a moment and think about the people you are helping to find the sweet spot in their life.
How can you help them tell a story to themselves that creates a different world than the one they are experiencing now?
Whatever story they start telling themselves, they can become.

P.S. Come to think about it…doesn’t this apply to all of us?
