Our personal narratives, mental models and mindsets help us make sense of the world, our relationships and the events of our lives. They can provide us with a sense of meaning and purpose but they may also limit and constrain us. In this presentation, you will learn how we create our stories and how we can adapt and transform them to achieve our positive potential in this life and experience greater peace and happiness.
