“I’ve overcome a lot of things, so I know my strengths and my abilities. You have to decide who you’re going to be and tell that story versus continuing on with the story that everybody else has made you tell about yourself.”
A quote from Lisa Beth Brock and one hell of a takeaway. This woman decided who she was going to be and stuck with it, and that decision came when she was the furthest from her ideal self as you can possibly imagine. A disconnected family, an abusive stepfather, challenging diagnoses, and even drug abuse all dictated a far different outcome.
Most people who knew Lisa during her troubled youth had basically counted her out. They did not see a girl with a future; they saw a girl with a past, and no amount of convincing could sway their opinion that she’d eventually succumb to overdose. But something deep inside pulled her out of that existence.
“Decide who you want to be. Not who you are, but who you want to be, and then figure out how to get there. You’ll just start believing it more and more.”
This attitude is so consistent with the law of attraction and visualization, something Lisa and I are firm believers in. She created her vision, and the potential to get to that place skyrocketed.
“I know my heart, so I know who I am, and I don’t think at this point anybody will ever be able to take that away from me.”
Lisa’s story is an inspiring one that needs retelling. She continues to expand her vision of possibility, and she’s passionate about instilling the same in others; especially in her young daughter.
And what if people don’t like who you become or support the direction you choose?
“You’re not for everyone. You’re not going to be.”
BAM! Great quote, Lisa Beth Brock. Keep doing what you’re doing. The ones you are for, appreciate that you revised the first draft of your personal story.
