Choose Your Story, Change Your Life: Rewriting the Stories You Tell Yourself

Each individual sitting in your audience is struggling with a story they tell themself. These stories determine the way we think, feel and act. They are deeply powerful predictors of what we will become in life. These stories are entirely invisible—an automatic, everyday mental routine that people don't recognize. The good news? We have the power to change them.

In Kindra's keynote, your audience will learn how to identify and flip the script on the internal stories and regain control. This eye-opening journey will help transform individuals from “passive listeners” into “definitive authors” of who they are to achieve everything they want to be.
