The Impact Of Telling Your Story


There are 2 way’s to gain significance in the world. You either play a bigger game or have a bigger problem than anyone else. What you think about, talk about and do something about is what comes about. This is how a success or a mess is created.

I listened to a “story” recently until I couldn’t take it any longer. For 25+ minutes someone I’ve known for over 20 years went on about all the bad things that have happened to him since the economic crash of 2008. The same crash everyone went through starting in 2008. He was sincere. He believed every word he told me. People make up things that empower them and things that disempower them. I asked him which camp he was reporting to every morning.

Imagine telling the same story every day for 12 years. Would it remain the same story or would you enhance it? Now tell the truth. What story are you telling yourself? Does it serve you? What actions have you taken to change the story? Problems are nothing more than a sign it’s time to grow and contribute. Growth and good things are tied to action and stagnation and bad things are tied to inaction. The question isn’t “what will you do”… The question is “who will you be?” Change comes when the cost of not doing something is greater than the cost of actually doing what needs to be done. The fear you have is nothing more than a conversation in your head about what could go wrong.

My name is Steven Clauson.  I coach people who want help getting where they want to be.  The people I coach are typically already taking action, getting results and ask what’s next and what actions to take to make an even greater impact.  They aren’t afraid to ask for help.  How can I help you?  What actions are you taking?  Those who have a plan and implement that plan lead the pack.  Planning, preparing to win and taking appropriate action means you hear the word “YES” more than ever. Only if you one of the few willing to take action, do what’s required and play full out are likely to hear the word yes more often.  People hearing the word “YES” are winners on the field playing because they play full out and dominate.  For these people results matter.  Tired of results less than you know you can produce?  Call me at 916-230-0176 or visit
