The Wake-Up Call Show: What Story are You Playing Out? (Video)

Dear One,

I‘ve been coaching so many amazing clients as of late that are playing out a story that doesn’t feel so hot. Ya know, those patterns in our lives that show up time and time again.

What’s the story you’ve been playing out? What’s the Big Fat Lie, the motherlode lie and story, that you’re really ready to release?

Does it go a little something like this (hit it!):

  • I don’t belong.
  • Bad things happen to me.
  • I’m unlovable.
  • Life’s a struggle.
  • Success means people won’t like me.
  • fill in the blank!

So today I made a super short video to get your wheels spinning. Check it out here.

In the video, I ask you to out the Big Fat Lie of a story you’re ready to release and to make a decision on the NEW STORY you’re ready to embrace.

What’s the NEW STORY you’re ready to claim?


  • I belong and have my tribe.
  • I’m one of the lucky ones.
  • I’m loved because I’m me.
  • Ease finds me wherever I go.
  • People are inspired by my success.

Let me know here (below) what your new story is.

I believe in YOU!

  1. Marygreta says:

    I’m ready to let go of fear of not being and having enough.
    I’d prefer to celebrate enough, abundance and joy!
    Thanks, Amy!

  2. Donna says:

    The stories I have been playing out is that

    * I need to be busy all of the time
    * I am not good enough, so I need to find a challenging venue and struggle through it to get a sense of self worth.

    And right now I am going to make few new stories

    * I will take time to fulfill my needs
    * I can choose to do something with my life that emphasizes my devine skills, rather than continue to do what I didn’t enjoy
    * I will have faith that everything will be all right

    • Sandy says:

      Wow! Thank you Donna for this insight:
      “I am not good enough, so I need to find a challenging venue and struggle through it to get a sense of self worth.”

      Umm. Killing me softly with your song!

      I never linked those two things – feeling of unworthiness and constant seeking out of challenging situations to struggle through. This is what people mean by a situation mirroring back to you how you feel about yourself. But somehow, the language you used really hit home for me.

      I’ve been struggling for the past few years in my career and romantic life.

      Meanwhile, I recently got a job offer that pays more than my last job I hated, working with great people on work I find meaningful with the flexibility to live anywhere I want – and for some reason I find myself not really respecting it. What the heck??

      And don’t even get me started on past guys I’ve decided were amazing who didn’t want to be with me, and miraculously, the ones who liked me weren’t good enough.

      I am embracing the story:
      The people who are meant to be in my life will appear and love me for me. I can be myself at work and the money and success will follow. There is no need to be anything other than exactly who I am.

    • Amy O'Brien says:

      I love your list, Donna. I can relate!

  3. Anne says:

    The story I’m going to let is that I’m unlovable and that no one wants me.

    I am replacing this with I am enough and everything abundant falls into place quickly and smoothly.


  4. Ton says:

    To let go of clutter..
    Live in simplicity..
    Smell the roses..

  5. Anne-Marie says:

    Funny, I have been tapping around this idea just this morning. Guess this is my next step. 🙂 I can feel the “big fat story-I’ve-been-sticking-to lie,” but have struggled to put it into words. I think this is close: “I am not enough the way I am; therefore, my story is not worthy of being told.” My new story – though I can feel myself fighting it already – is simply, right here, right now, “I am enough.”

  6. kitty girl says:

    Releasing: I don’t belong and I’m unlovable

    Inviting: I have a tribe and people love me

    Donna – wonderful insight… I too look for struggles to overcome to gain a sense of self worth. I just finished my Bachelor’s degree, graduating with honors, while working full-time and still feel an empty hole where pride and a sense of accomplishment ought to live.

  7. Jennie says:

    I am releasing the story that I am not capable, that I can’t do it.
    My new story: I am capable, I am healing, I am doing it.

  8. Shrell says:

    Releasing the story that I am broke, in debt, and will never make enough money to get ahead and do the things I want for my family and community.

    Inviting that I am surrounded by abundance in love, health, joy,AND money! I am financially free by doing what I love and helping others.

  9. Doreen Mullan says:

    The Lie that i dont feel i belong anywhere or fit in, that people come into my life and leave when theyre finished taking what they need. I release these lies now and claim the victory…..I am much loved and wanted and people stay loyal in my life.
    thank you Amy xo

  10. Fiona says:

    Hello everyone,


    I have been working on this one big lie for many years and slowly BUT very surely it seems to be disolving:


    OH MY GOD!!
    Boy have I been looking for experiences especially with men to confirm this!!


    ME AND MY DAUGHTER ARE SO OUTRAGEOUSLY WORTHY OF ABUNDANCE OF LOVE, JOY, HAPPINESS and our needs and boundaries are just as important and deserve to be heard and taken seriously!!



  11. Lana says:

    As I read through everyone’s comments, it seem’s there is a little piece in each one that i think “YES, YES…ME TOO!!” so it’s a little difficult to name just one BFL that is the story I’ve been living…but from my heart I get this: I am small, unworthy, dumb, so I can’t play big nor deserve to be heard, insignificant, unimportant & don’t matter! I feel my little light will never be able to shine through all of the big, dark ego energy always surrounding me, clouding me…I want my new story to be: I MAY BE SMALL, BUT I AM POWERFUL! I AM WORTHY (of success, prosperity, and unconditional love!) AND IT IS MY UNIVERSAL RIGHT TO PLAY BIG AND BE HEARD, I AM IMPORTANT AND I DO MATTER, AND MY LITTLE LIGHT WILL CONQUER THE DARK EGO ENERGY CLOUD AND I WILL BE ABLE TO SHINE LIKE THE GODDESS I AM AND I WILL BE FREE!! I release the negativity of the the past and I embrace the positive and the future!!

  12. Jennifer says:

    I release the story that success, and leaving one’s dream life of creativity and leadership, is for “others.”

    I deserve to live my life fully and joyfully – and I embrace each day as an opportunity to step into that! I am open to finding my dream life as it presents itself daily!

  13. Taylor says:

    Money comes easy to me because I am abundant and generous by nature

  14. Charlotte says:

    Thanks Amy for your incredible inspiring encouraging videos, that always make me smile. I release that I have to do everything alone with out support and replace it with I can ask for help and get it from people who work 50:50 with me. I am no longer alone.

    Bright blessings

  15. Andee says:

    I am releasing, that i am not to blame for my ex not spending time with his son. that I am not a bad person that threats co-works. I will replace those big fat lies.. with the truth, I am a good mother and want the best for my son and his relationship with his father. I am a very dedicated and good working in my office and professional to all.

  16. Paula says:

    I release the BIG FAT LIE that I will always struggle with my weight and body image, that my size and shape will always be bigger than I want. From the first time my mom yelled at me because the “normal” girls clothes didn’t fit me, I have felt guilty and ashamed. I’m over it. No more. 35 years later, I say: I love my body and my curves. I’m a hot chick. I’m a beauty. My new reality is that I catch people checking me out – and I wink at them!

  17. Manda says:

    I release the BIG FAT MEANIE LIE that if anyone knew the real me they would not like me. I release the BIG FAT HURTFUL lie that my self-worth is based on what I do.
    I release the BIG FAT WOUND that I am poor, crazy, ugly, stupid, and forgotten.

    I know that I am a creative, eclectic, nurturing, reflective, inspiring, beautiful woman, wife, mother, teacher, daughter, and friend filled by the unconditional love that comes from within.

    Amy,Thanks for the reminder exercise.
    Lovely Love Club Ladies, Thanks for sharing your truths.

  18. Melanie says:

    I release the BIG FAT LIE that I am unlovable because I have a wrinkly neck and that no one pays attention to me because I am a 60-year-old woman. I release the BIG FAT LIE that because I was raped I am forever a “broken vessel,” and because I had a cesarean hysterectomy, I am no longer a “real woman.” I release the BIG FAT LIE that I will always struggle for money. I release the BIG FAT LIE that I can never pull it together, I never get enough help, and my house will always be a ginormous clusterf#$#K, an overwhelming monster that steals all my time and energy. I release the BIG FAT LIE that I will never find a soulmate or success as a fiction writer and poet. Holy cow, there’s lots more I need to release, but that’ll do for now.

    My new story finds me in health and happiness, with an agent for my novel, and a steady, high income. My new story finds me respected and loved, with generous friends and helpers always willing to aid me whenever I need help. My new story finds me able to fulfill my constant desire to help and be of service to others, without sacrificing my sanity, health or money.
