Bedtime stories for global players with Beatrice Achaleke
The world we live in is a story. Our life is a story. Each one of us is part of this story, consciously or unconsciously we choose to be either an object or the actress/actor in the story of our lives. As kids we loved listening to stories read to us by our parents, grand parents, teachers and later on by ourselves. Stories play a very important role in shaping our thoughts and actions. Scientists and quantum physicians have proven that each human being has 60,000 thoughts per day. In other words, 60,000 stories in different variations. 98% of these thoughts or stories are repetitions of things we learnt or heard at one point in our lives, from our parents, teachers, and friends, from the media etc.
What you may want to know
Your thoughts determine your story, your story determines how others perceive you, how others perceive you determines how your environment treats you, and how you are treated determines what you get, what you get is the sum-up who you are as a global or domestic player.
The good news
It is possible to filter and shape your thoughts to tell the story that you need to be the person you want to be, not the person you think others want you to be. Beatrice Achaleke carefully designed this GloBuntu Bedtime stories drawing not only from her own personal experiences but also from those of some of the very international audience she serves in her different roles as congress manager, writer, teacher, mother, immigrant and learner.
