Changing lives

I often think about this phrase: 'It changed my life.' 
But how can we even talk about changing a life, since (I believe) we do not know in advance how our life is going to be?
I have used this phrase myself many times, but the more I think about it, the more I feel that it is not the right way for me to talk about the work, we're doing.
Maybe this is just a matter of words, but I am considering saying different things about changes. 
For example: 'This story made me change my mind', or 'This story changed the way I think about myself, gave me an insight, made me think differently about a certain situation in my history' etc. etc.

What do you think about this?
What do say about the effect of your work?
How do you express when you experience changes in your mind after having heard a great story?
