What’s Your Story?

“You have an entire story to tell & no one can tell it quite like you.”  Byron Embry

Just like an author who is writing a book, we can change our story at any time.   As humans we have a mind that can alter the outcome of our lives.  Your life is full of lessons, experiences, good and bad and behind all of them is a powerful message that you are meant to share with the world that could leave an impression on someone that could change their life. What story do you want to leave in the minds of your children? A few years ago I was at an event where Les Brown was speaking. As he came in front of our table he thumped his fist down on the table as he said, “When you die do you want all your dreams and desires to say, we came to you for life and now we have to die with you!” A very powerful moment that I don’t think I’ll ever forget.

What limiting story are you allowing to dictate how your life should be? Are you procrastinating? Are you allowing those insidious voices in your head to keep you small? Imagine a book on the desk in front of you with the pages on the left all written, and the pages on the right are all blank, waiting for the words to appear. Are you going to live your life by default, as the words get written for you or are you going to live by design where you get to write the words consciously having made a decision about what you want to put on those blank pages? It is never too late to choose a life by design. It doesn’t matter how old, how young, or what your skills are right now. You could literally get a cheap notebook or something inspiring if that is going to get you going. Write down the dream life you intend to live then break it down into goals and plans. Bring that story to life!

Enjoy getting your dream machine cranked up!
