Shaping Your Life's Narrative ~ Podcast

"You can't measure yourself by one standard."


I recently had the opportunity to speak with Jen Lee on the I NEED BLUE podcast. We talked about failures in elementary and life struggles that we all deal with.



Description from the I NEED BLUE podcast:

Barry Walton is an accomplished director with five documentaries and an Emmy under his belt. Barry won 15 awards for best documentary short with his most recent film, Empty America. He is also the owner of Endless Media. This is Barry Walton's story... Barry Walton was held back in third grade. He remembers feeling shame and embarrassment when he found out he wouldn't be advancing to the next grade with his peers. His parents didn't talk to him about it, and he felt alone and misunderstood. When he started the next school year, he had to get his own desk because there weren't enough for all the students. He was embarrassed and felt like a failure. Barry went on to become a successful director, but he still carries the pain of that experience with him. In this episode, you will learn the following:

1. The emotional and mental impact that being held back a grade has on a child. 2. The importance of listening to and hearing what a child has to say about their experiences. 3. The importance of being aware of your narrative and then managing it. Review: "When you put 2 storytellers in the same room, this is what you get; magic! I love this episode and wanted to keep listening. When is part 2 going to be available?"
