Live Rejoicing-Change your Story

You may feel like Penny Chenery Tweedy, the owner of Secretariat in this movie clip based upon the true story of Secretariat. The world is against you, the road feels so uphill. Looking back at history retrospectively, we know that Secretariat was the only horse in history to win the triple crown. Penny could have given up and a lot of people told her that she should. But, against what seems like impossible odds, she believed in that horse and never gave up.

Did you know that you could be one decision away from breaking your old story and facing success head on? That’s right, you could be one moment, one instant away from changing everything. It depends so much on the story you choose to tell. Is your story about the failed economy or the competition? Or how about your difficult childhood or how everyone else gets all the breaks? Penny didn’t tell the story of her obstacles, she told the story of her future success. She persevered until she reached her dream.

You were not put on this earth to fail. Yet, why do we write our life stories like we were? Don’t let the negative ‘what ifs’ be the headliners to your story. Consider your obstacles part of the amazing journey of victory and success. Penny saw her horse as a winner. Do you see yourself as a winner? That’s what it takes to become one!
