697: What are your misbeliefs?

In her fantastic books on story, Lisa Cron, talks about misbeliefs – the psychological flaw in a character that stops them becoming the person they need to be.

For her – and for me – the subtext of the story… the way the protagonist changes is the part that really delivers.

One of my misbeliefs, for example, was that I didn’t have the ability to keep-my-arse-in-the-chair and write a novel.

I fought and killed that misbelief in 2016, and CHANGED as a result.

What misbelief – although right now you’d call it a belief – is stopping you being the person you could be?

What’s your hero’s journey?
