Sometimes it writes stories, sometimes it teaches something. And when you feel like you got nothing to deliver, you teach yourself the biggest lesson on introspection.
Each day – you end up learning something from your situation, people around you and the observation you make. You do this unconsciously. When you take time to understand each piece and learn from it, you will end up becoming the better version of yourself. It might take months or years to implement the learning and that is fine. The idea is to take yourself one level up by the teachings around you.
On the other hand, you keep on creating new ideas and vision. Take a moment to think about it and lay down the path to achieve some of them in reality. It is important to test your ideas and work on it. It might bring in a positive change, impact people and make you feel good about it.
Your creations help you in the long run if you give it the desired attention. From the initial inception till the implementation, be positive and let the ideas flow. It might be wrong, unworthy and unprofitable but try to learn from it. Experiment and then come to a conclusion.
You Have A Story
and it is worthy of telling. Your life, the journey you took and the ideas you want to make big – all of them are the story which you tell yourself and others. It forms the basis of your foundation.
Whatever you do is tied to this image which you have created. And the best part is you can change the storyline and make it awesome. For example, if you failed an exam and your story is – ‘I am a failure’ then you will see most of the things as a obstucle. Instead if you tell your story as – ‘I learned the mistakes I made when I failed, I am going to use it for my next success’. By doing this you have boosted yourself and you will take the further challenges with a positive attitude.
The underlying idea is to tell stories which will help you make a positive outcome. Good, bad and average things will keep happening. How do you relate to that? What is your idea of the outcome? What do you tell others? – all of this matters.
This will decide what your future trajectory will look like. So when people say – be careful about what you say, consider it as a blessing. Because your words can define how you live in the present and tackle things as they come.
Whatever your story maybe, the other side is to have an impact. For example, I want to charge the neurons of people with my writing – which includes thoughtful insights, perspectives and opinions. Alongside, I love to tell fictional stories which takes you on a journey.
Another example might be – if you are a doctor, you might want to change the discourse of the hospital environment. The goal here isn’t to accomplish the end result. You need to know the impact which you want to make and then work for it. Eventually when enough people care along with you, the impact will be visible.
Wake up the storyteller within you and create something which you will share to reach your goals and have impact.
