S10 E43 Steps to Write Your Life Story |IBGR | Donna Kunde & Londina Cruz “Life is like a blank book, you write your own story not others.” – Zihan Zheng If your hero's story seems to be a confining Myth to you, you may want to reinterpret what the Myth could mean to you. Many people find that they have two major stories active at the same time: a script and a deeper, more empowering myth. While it may be ideal to know our own Miss once and for all, it is unlikely that we will do so. Our understanding of our life tasks and our life story is an evolving one, one that is actually greatly affected by what is on top for us during the specific chronological period. during which we are writing. Any of us who gets too attached to any one version of Our Own Story, or is living out an unexamined story, needs the renewal that comes from reconsidering that story in the light of current realities. It is a good idea to update your myth frequently to see that the plot you are living is still a useful and enlivening one. Use these five steps as a guide to writing your life’s story: What was the most empowering thing anyone ever told you about yourself? Who and what has most inspired you? How's your life been altered because of this person, idea, or experience? What brings you real pleasure and satisfaction? What are you good at? What do you really love to do? Write your life story in the form of an obituary that will describe the essential truth of your life. It is not necessary to write what you think your obituary will say. Write what it would say if you fulfilled your potential in every area of life – personal and spiritual as well as professional. What would it say if you lived your life fully and on your deathbed had no regrets? What Archetypes have been active in your life? What Archetypes would have to be active in your life for you to fulfill your potential?
Make sure you leave some thoughts in the comment section below. We are interested in continuing the conversation.

She is an internationally recognized Business Coach and Trainer bringing 20+ years’ experience in military leadership. Donna has been a serial entrepreneur for the last 25 years owning a range of businesses experiencing the unique challenges solopreneurs face with small business growth.

Her specialty is helping organizations navigate through change, challenge and tragedy. The combination of her intensive study of the mind, plus practical applications in human potential, Donna provides a unique perspective on leadership, personal growth, sales, communication, and team building.
A high point of Donna's training career happened when she accompanied Dr. John C. Maxwell and his team on a country transformation mission. At the request of the Costa Rican government, the Maxwell team successfully trained 15,000 Round Table facilitators in three days, resulting in a 2% transformation of that nation and projected to reach another 60,000 Costa Ricans the following week. Her trademark energetic communication style and teaching skills have earned her a reputation as a highly effective speaker and respected facilitator.
Londina Cruz is an International Trainer, Executive Coach, and Keynote Speaker with the John Maxwell Team and a Strategic Coach with Anthony Robbins. Londina is a part of Global Transformation with the John Maxwell Foundation, training thousands of leaders in Paraguay and Costa Rica to help transform the values and culture of these nations.
She has spent more than 25 years studying, coaching and consulting in personal mastery and human performance techniques. These techniques include emotional and social intelligence trainings that elevate individuals, leaders and their organizations to excel well beyond current standards – offering a dynamic competitive advantage.
Londina has taken a situation that would devastate most individuals, being hit by a drunk driver, and has turned it into her life force. In this accident, Londina sustained a traumatic head injury, broken back and broken neck. The doctors gave her little hope of a normal life. She has now turned this challenge into an extraordinary life of empowering others to turn their fears into freedom and reach their potential.
Mastering her limiting beliefs and overcoming all that doctors had told her, Londina has thrived physically as well.
She has become a Triathlete (competing in a Half-Ironman and medaling in numerous other triathlons), a two-time marathon runner (Nike Women’s in San Francisco and the Marine Corps in Washington), and a cyclist.
She has released 100 lbs. by taking control of her thoughts instead of allowing thoughts to control her.
She knows what it takes to take you and your team from where you are to where you want to be.
