The stories we tell ourselves could be the one that gives us peace, or it could be the one that takes away the peace.
It is up to us what we want from life. The stories that we tell ourselves that leaves an impression in our mind. It is these impressions that then manifest. What is manifested is the total of what we think.
Feed your mind the stories that you want for yourself. When your mind takes you to the unwanted stories, feed your mind the contrasting story of what you want it to do.
If you want success, happiness, and peace, feed your mind the success stories, as it would manifest what it is nurtured with.
The stories we should tell ourselves are the stories we want to live.
