Take one: action!
Admit it. We love a great and inspiring story, real or reel. It doesn’t even matter if it is a case of life imitates art, art imitates life, or somewhere in between.
Some say life at its fullest is a beautiful picture made out of many jigsaw puzzle pieces. The catch is that it all depends on ourselves to go out looking for the missing pieces.
Others may look at it as a storybook written by the Divine, with you as the main character.
We encounter various plots, characters, scenes and climaxes – going through life page by page and chapter by chapter – before we eventually reach 'The End'.
If your life in book is adapted into a movie, would your story leave a lasting impression on your audience? Or will it be a forgettable movie?
If you have the opportunity to rewrite the script of your life’s movie, how would you like to see it turn out?
Here are three fundamental points you can apply to direct how your story ends:
Patience: Revise your script
In a world of unpredictable circumstances, we need to be agile and flexible enough to adapt to changes.
We are all uniquely crafted to be different. Hence, your story doesn’t need to be the same as the person next to you.
Passion: Give your best
With every script you have prepared, get into your role and put your best foot forward. With that in mind, be mindful to work your strengths to your advantage.
In areas where you lack, identify them specifically and make a conscious effort to improve yourself.
Perseverance: Envision your destination
How do you envision the ending of your movie? Would it be dramatic, serene, sad or happy?
Once you have set your mind to your destiny, take proactive steps and work towards it. Hiccups may occur along the way, but press on until you see the end result of your movie.
May your 'movie' be a blockbuster that inspires and leaves a lasting impression to your audience for days, months or even years.
In the future, everybody is going to be a director. Somebody’s got to live a real life so we have something to make a movie about. – Cameron Crowe
