Last week I had a conversation with one of my friend, about his ‘life story’! The conversation was short and died soon.But this idea of writing a book and planning the chapters that to include in it stayed with me!.
So ,imagine you are writing your story !! Story so far!
When I say writing, I don’t literally mean it. But imagine this thing –At this point of time you decides to write to your Life story. There will be a hell lot of question that you will ask yourself!
- Discovering you,.childhood,education..How many characters will have a lead role?
- What did you learn from your failures or does the 3rd chapter and 7 th carried the same mistakes?
- What is your secret key to success?the small and big ones u had..How you got up after falling down each time??
- Family ..Friendship..people
- The cazy things you did..Your weird part
More importantly what defines you? How you evolved? your confusions and conflicts within, your search for purpose of life ,Finding happiness and peace etc. And we know its not the number of chapters that we count, its the content within.
When I did this “Imagine you Life Story in a book” exercise I was initially fed up. I couldn’t find any interesting chapters or events in my life that is worth writing! Literally I have a plain story of doing schooling,graduation,job ,post graduation then again a job ..kind of!
But then one thing that keeps me going is the thought that “The real story is yet to come”.This one feeling keeps me motivated and makes me do different things so that one day i would make a beautiful chapter out of it.Back then, all the initial years will be summed to a single chapter or may not be relevant at all.So think about it. What is your story??How many chapters have you reached so far?
Always remember no matter what, ultimately its YOU who is writing.
And if you are currently stuck at some chapter,always remember to move on..to make your big story!
