Knowing your Personal Story

Photo: theinspirationroom.comKnowing your personal storyMany brands are not selling a product but want us to buy into a larger narrative or "emotional space". Managers of the famous soda company will vehemently insist that they don't sell beverages but "happiness in a can". Are you "Coca Cola happy" or do you still know what happiness really means to you? If Marshall McLuhan's quote "violence is the quest for identity" holds true, commercial culture is at war with you, for your identity, your originality, your history. Know your personal story and use it to reject cliches.
