This morning I read a thought by Kute Blackson. He said,
“Your story is just that, a story. You can re-write it at any time.“
So what is your story?
Stories can be very powerful. In fact that is how we communicate our past, share our wisdom, teach our lessons, and create our identity. Some stories are great epics that uplift, inspire, and focus the protagonists strength. Unfortunately many people today believe a different story about themselves. Their story usually involves pointing out all the weaknesses of the protagonist. They are written in such a way that the protagonist is now the victim. The protagonist is faced with obstacles that he fails to overcome. The protagonist has no help and no way out of this dire circumstance.
Are you writing and epic or a eulogy?
I suggest to you that the choice is yours. You are the author of your story. If you don’t like your story, re-write it.
Going through many drafts is the mark of a masterpiece. Don’t look at the mistakes in your life, the obstacles in your life as failures but as drafts helping you write your masterpiece. Each draft gets you one step closer to your polishing, directing your epic story.
Here is a question I want you to answer:
What 3 ways can you re-write your story so you feel more empowered, more productive, and happier daily?[HINT:] Create the vision of what you want your personal, business, and spiritual life to look like. Once you do that, you will be able to write the epic story built on your strengths.
