The Power of Your Story

Posted by:


“A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap. “I have nothing to give you,” said the stranger. Then he asked: “What’s that you are sitting on?” “Nothing,” replied the beggar. “Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.” “Ever looked inside?” asked the stranger. “No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.” “Have a look inside,” insisted the stranger. The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold.”

I loved this story from the moment I heard Eckart Tolle sharing it. Stories just stick with me and they stick with our customers, fans and followers…

The truth is, most of us are “beggars.”  We “sit” on the “old boxes” full of stories we lived through. Some of these stories were hard won battles some lost ones. We take them for granted, believing  “there is nothing in there.”

Like many, for the longest time, I lived in the space of “who needs to hear this….” One day I attended a seminar, where everything changed! The speaker told his personal story in such a way that I realized there wasn’t one story in my life that belonged to ME! I was selfish to hold down to them on one hand— they could potentially change the lives of so many people! On the other, shared, they could change mine! I was literally sitting on the “box filled with gold!”

Divorce? Great!

Bankruptcy? Better!

Disease? Amazing!

Not only I could feel better inside myself as I chose to look at everything as if it all happened for my highest good, but also help others for the highest good of all concerned!  I started teaching this to my clients, and they have begun reporting crazy results!
