“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”
Khalil Gibran (1883-1931) Lebanese-American Poet, Writer

Re-evaluating Life Story

An exploration of the past in a fresh and transformative way to enrich your life and relationships with others, because how you define your past profoundly influences your present and creates your future.

“We are shaped by our thoughts. We become what we think.”

Dr. Hall has created this “one-of-a kind” training especially for those of you who are dedicated to support and empower yourself and others in the advancement of personal and professional development.

"Inherently, each one of us has the substance within to achieve whatever our goals and
dreams define. What is missing is the training, education, knowledge and insight to
utilize what we already have."
Mark Twain (1835-1910), American Author

All communication in the broadest sense of the meaning of the word is storytelling. Human beings are storytellers by nature. And, for the most past, people are not aware of the stories and metaphors that they use... the stories and metaphors that they live by.

We relate and encounter all kinds of stories and metaphors in everyday activities in every situation where communication takes place. Storytelling represents a fundamental way of expressing oneself and our attitudes, perceptions and beliefs about the world.

“Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you.”
Aldous Huxley (1894-1963), English Writer

The story is a natural device for organizing all kinds of information. We give our experiences a sense of coherence and relevance by arranging the events of our lives into stories. When we organize something in the larger structure of a story (or metaphor), this creates the framework to look at something in a fresh and different way. Through our personal stories, we can discover what is meaningful in our lives.

During our time together, you will have the opportunity to explore the following areas:

  • Identify the stories you live by.
  • Explore language as an essential resource for transformation to re-evaluate and re-shape your life story.
  • “Framing” and “Reframing” as a powerful tool to access and maximize your transformative resources to live well and… will into the future.
  • Transform metaphors about yourself and your life.
  • “Future-pacing” as a powerful tool to shape your future by “Creating Future History Now”.
  • Live the transformed story with happiness, well-being and purpose.
“The future turns out to be something that you make instead of find. It isn't waiting for your arrival, nor is it any further away than the next sentence... The future is an empty canvas or a blank sheet of paper, and if you have the courage of your own thought and your own observation, you can make of it what you will.”
Lewis Lapham (1935-), American Writer
