We all have our personal narratives. When we go through life and experience the high’s, low’s and everything in the middle, we build experience and look at life from a certain lens. Our personal experiences, our personal and professional networks and what we see/hear/feel influence us to create our own personal narratives. Those personal narratives are powerful on how we go about each day and how we see the world around us.
A Psychology Today article states that if we can consistently empower students to tell stories about their lives in a more positive way, we can help them become resilient and motivated as they pursue their goals. Personal narratives are very powerful and it greatly impacts our successes and failures.
