We are the stories that we tell ourselves,
but we have the power to edit our stories and take steps in a new direction, according to psychologist Timothy Wilson (author of Redirect: A New Way to Think About Psychological Change).
For example, in a group of poorly performing first-year college students, a common self-narrative would be that “I’m just not cut out for college,” leading to higher dropout rates. But those who were prompted with a simple narrative that it was normal for first year struggles to become easier with learning over time, reinforced with upper-class student storytelling, significantly improved performance and graduation rates against a control group.
When we’re conscious of our own story, we can take initiative to edit it, and write a happier ending.
