Write Your Own Story

‘Once Upon A Time’ and ‘Happily Ever After’ are simply fairytales of our imaginations. We are defined by the stories we tell ourselves and the stories of other people. Whether it be business, marketing, social media or day-to-day life, we create the fairytale. Jay Shetty’s powerful statement invites a new perspective. If we change the way we look at things, the things you look at, change. You have the power to write your own story- this is your life and your book.
