Key Takeaways from Session #4 So, what are you going to do about it?
We make up little stories all day every day.
There are 2-3 big stories we’ve been telling ourselves for so long we actually believe they are true.
Consider this, we are attempting nothing less than rewiring your brain. We’re trying to slow down the response rate of your amygdala in order to give the ol’ neocortex a chance to catch up and demonstrate its analytical, reasoning intelligence. To allow it to make more nuanced deductions.
We felt that this was important for you to have in writing for review. Here are some ways to look at your big story.
Did you identify any patterns? Did they lead you to a big story?
Say more about what actually happened.
Is it true?
Did you distort the truth?
Can you flip it? Make up something that works for you?
Does it have to be true?
Do you know where that story comes from?
When did you start telling that story?
Is it familiar to you?
How does the story make you feel?
How do the facts make you feel?
In addition, here are some ideas from Brene Brown to identify the story you’re making up:
Story Defying Mantra work
Remember - This is a message from your neocortex!
Here are some examples from our video:
I know what to do and I do it.
I make money work for me.
We can do hard things. Credit Glennon Doyle
All prosperity all the time.
Commitment, like a freedom.
I am an open-flowing channel for LOVE.
I didn’t know how, but now I am an information-seeking missile.
My body carries me through the days and nights of my life and I am grateful for it.
I am lovable.
If you haven’t already, please take a minute now and write your own badass story-defying mantra. Think of this as a tattoo that you would have inscribed to save you from yourself!
So now what? As Amy outlined in the video you have options! Because it’s not going away... It’s up to you to tame it, but that story will always be trying to claw its way back into your thoughts. You’ve got your mantra to help, but you’ll need reinforcements. We’ve got you covered.

Amy specializes in executive coaching. She will coach you to become a more effective leader; help you set and achieve goals; manage difficult employees; "manage up"; determine your strengths and weaknesses and hire accordingly.
Pam’s life coaching is based in reflective listening. Pam’s greatest gift as a coach is that she is an intensely interested listener. Pam listens to what you say, and what you say between the lines. She’ll help you to determine what’s the story that is between you and the goals.
Costa Rica Retreat: Ready for a total Perfect Avocado immersion? Join us for our flagship in person retreat. (TBD based on COVID safety.)
On this retreat we spend an entire day on your big story. We’ll dig deep with compassionate coaching and a ritual to actually break up with your story.
Next with your story named and tamed, you will create a future you can’t imagine. Your story has been keeping you from dreaming big. It’s been keeping you small. With coaching from Amy and Pam, meditation and journaling you’ll uncover a dream so big it may even scare you. But you’ll know in your heart of hearts it’s the one for you.
And finally the secret sauce of our Perfect Avocado Retreats - what sets us apart from most retreats - you’ll develop a plan of action to achieve that dream!
