Don’t like your lack of freedom ? maybe you’re listening to stories that help others but don’t help you.
So maybe you could try telling yourself some new stories- new stories about what you can do; new stories about what you might just be able to do.

Try listening to new stories – from new people who can share with you new ideas about what is possible.
Or don’t – it is your choice.
