Stories Ripe for Replacing

“Yeah, every time I go to the US, I put on at least 3 kilos,” I told a friend a few days ago on a hike in Estes Park. The reason is simple, isn’t it? The food is delicious: Triple bacon burgers, poke with shrimp, tuna and salmon, burritos with carnitas, corn and sour cream… So good and so unhealthy! No surprise I always put on weight!

Yesterday I walked around the hotel gym. My colleagues from Europe were not in yet, I had nothing else to do, so I thought: “Why not? I even have my gym clothes here.”

A thought struck me: What if the “3 kilo thing” was not a rule but just a story I’m telling to myself?

See, another “every time” for my travel to the US is that I’m staying in a hotel where there’s a complimentary gym 5 minutes walk from my room.

This time, I’ll give a shot to replacing “Every time I go to the US, I put on at least 3 kilos” with: “Every time I go to the US, I get in shape!” The reason is simple, isn’t it? There’s a free gym five minutes from my room; I’m squeezing the most out of the hotel services!

How about you: What’s your story ripe for replacing?
