Follow Up: Writing Your Life Story
Last week we began the journey of writing our life story. In this episode, I do a quick recap of what we covered and follow up with three people who were impacted in various ways by these three steps:
1). Write Your Table of Contents - Create a list of the chapters you want. “The Year I Got Married”
“The Year I Launched My Company”
What chapters do you hope to write someday?
2). List all the chapters you already have but didn't want - What have been pivotal points in your story you regret or wish you could rewrite?
3). Write the Summary - What kind of story are you writing? What is the overall theme of your narrative? What will be the impact of your story on the rest of the world?
Disclaimer: There are two crucial rules to remember while practicing this exercise!
• You have everything you need.
• You are more powerful than you realize.
The common misconception is that we unable to complete these chapters because we lack something, i.e.
"If only I had more money...If only I had more time!"
False. You have everything you need, and you're stronger than you know.
Listen in as three people reflect on how they have begun to use these tools and mindsets presented in the live talk from last week to begin writing a life story they can be proud of.
