Storytelling is powerful because if you tell a story with vivid details, the listeners will feel as though they have experienced it. With the right words and delivery, you can shape a person’s perception, subconscious, and in turn, reality.
The same applies to yourself. Whatever you imagine and tell yourself consistently is the basis of your reality. This is why people find it difficult to change their mindset because it’s a part of reality. When you tell someone that it’s possible to be successful beyond their imagination, they can’t imagine it because it’s yet to become their reality.
This is a powerful realisation. If you can imagine something with a strong enough conviction, you will change your reality. You can literally shape your own world. Start letting this seep in.
