    Jim Loehr describes how stories create meaning for our lives and provide context for our experiences Most notably, the stories we tell to and about ourselves create our destiny Loehr asserts that individuals must create new stories and those stories can only become reality with full engagement, including one s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy To become fully realized, new stories must become unconscious habits and rituals grounded in concrete definable outcomes.I was particul Jim Loehr describes how stories create meaning for our lives and provide context for our experiences Most notably, the stories we tell to and about ourselves create our destiny Loehr asserts that individuals must create new stories and those stories can only become reality with full engagement, including one s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy To become fully realized, new stories must become unconscious habits and rituals grounded in concrete definable outcomes.I was particularly interested in Loehr s assertion that we tell stories in five key areas Work, family, health, happiness and friendship The Power of Story will truly get you thinking about the stories you tell in each of these areas I also enjoyed his thoughts about the power of aligning our inner and outer voices.If you are someone who would like to take control of your story and become the writer, not just an actor in it, The Power of Story will provide you with a framework for the work ahead

    I was initially disappointed that this book focused so much on business or work performance However, in the later part of the book, I saw how what he was proposing, his fundamental tenet, that we focus on energy that is, health rather than time, would be revolutionary if it were implemented on a wide scale The work place would change drastically The structure, the simplistically punative systems, the oversight, all of these things would have to change to accommodate the well being of the pe I was initially disappointed that this book focused so much on business or work performance However, in the later part of the book, I saw how what he was proposing, his fundamental tenet, that we focus on energy that is, health rather than time, would be revolutionary if it were implemented on a wide scale The work place would change drastically The structure, the simplistically punative systems, the oversight, all of these things would have to change to accommodate the well being of the people doing the work So I was won over to the focus on business change that sphere and the possibilities open up for greater personal effectiveness But of course, businesses don t like change And so he is trying to effect individuals at the top levels to embrace this idea in all areas of their lives and work.Another disappointment was that story for him essentially means self talk and self concept I was hoping it had to dowith imagination And while he does give a lot of credit to imaginative self concept and visualization, he is essentially leading people to create a self concept and lifestyle that are positive and in harmony.Grandiose language about an ultimate purpose tends to irritate me and Loehr emphasizes that as a way to help people prioritize or focus on what they should focus on He is catering to type As, so the language and the press toward perfection de motivates me rather than motivates me not a type A However, I did like his notion of embedding and self indoctrination I feel this is an area of self help psychology that hasn t been adequately brought into the light and Loehr doesn t shy from it I m hoping he hasn t written the last word on it because the exercises and suggestions don t seem quite adequate, but he at least givesguidelines to follow for making a desired change actually stick than many people.I ve kept this book because I feel its a good one to go back through periodically He emphasizes getting honest with oneself I think we all develop self illusions over time Sometimes we kick them only to have them show up again Sometimes new ones arrive with new circumstances It s good to have a guide for reviewing these and reasserting personal truths and priorities

    This is funny because the title, in big letters on both the cover and the title page is The Power of STORY Rewrite your destiny in Business and in Life Maybe the title got changed between publications I truly loved this book, and I can feel myself already changing in small ways to achieve what I want out of my life.

    My review I recently took a landmark course, and it showed these concepts in a practical sense We live our lives as a story And often times we misinterpret what happens to us, viewing what happens as the single source of truth Usually, we color that story as negative Why did I have to fail that test That instructor had it out for me Etc This book goes over how we view these stories and gives some direction on how to change it up.What I remember The narrative we give to our stories is ou My review I recently took a landmark course, and it showed these concepts in a practical sense We live our lives as a story And often times we misinterpret what happens to us, viewing what happens as the single source of truth Usually, we color that story as negative Why did I have to fail that test That instructor had it out for me Etc This book goes over how we view these stories and gives some direction on how to change it up.What I remember The narrative we give to our stories is our own Ultimately it s how we decide the story is being told that makes the life we live a good one or a sad one Comments To be honest I don t remember much So my comment is this book should have had somememorable content

    I found this book to be a great recipe for reconnecting with ourselves along multiple dimensions work, family, health It helps us reconnect with and build habits to optimize our energy along these dimensions The health advice is outdated per current science, but the intent of that section is still spot on This book is better read, not listened to audiobook There are many exercises that would be difficult to grasp in audio format, and there is no companion PDF for the audiobook

    Great concept the most important story we tell ourselves is our own story What is dysfunctional about our current story What in our story is keeping us from going where we want to go in our life What is our Ultimate Mission What new story can we create that has the 3 essential pieces of good story telling purpose, truth, and hope filled action The exercises in the last 30 pages of the book sums it all up pretty nicely and you could take away the main points of the book from that.

    The best practical advice I got from this book was the idea that the stuff which consumes you becomes part of your story negative thinking begone and as far as figuring out your purpose, thinking in terms of what you would want engraved on your epitaph Three stars because the book just wasn t for me, but I think anyone who is farbusiness minded would enjoy this book.

    A wise, well written look at how the story we imagine for ourselves and the story we create for ourselves are often at odds with one another Loehr, doesn t stop at revealing that gap, though He provides the structure by which his organization helps their clients get back on track with the story they want to be telling, not just settle for the story that isn t working.

    This book will convince you to take a hard, honest look at yourself and feel good about it.I like how he addresses the importance of dealing with your demons, while emphasizing forward movement at the same time Both are important.
