I want you to imagine you have a backpack sitting in front of you. It has been in your family for generations, passed down from parent to child. This backpack holds all the characteristics and experiences that distinguish your family. It represents everything you inherited, both consciously and unconsciously.

Some of the items in your backpack will be useful and advantageous. Hard work, discipline, financial security and laughter may have been supporting your family for generations.  Your backpack may also include some things you wish weren’t there – abuse, neglect, bankruptcy, broken relationships or addictions.

The backpack comes with one golden opportunity.  When you have the backpack in your possession, you may alter its contents by adding or subtracting items. The addition or subtraction of items isn’t an easy job.  It will take a lot of time, hard work and dedication to make changes.
