You Are The Writer, The Director, And The Star!

A friend sent me this quote last week and I just can’t stop thinking about it. “You are the only one who can change the direction of your life and you are the ONLY one you want to change the direction of your life!”

Every day is a new chance for you to re-invent yourself and to rewrite your story. It can be a new sentence, a new paragraph, chapter, and in some cases start writing an entirely different book altogether, it doesn’t matter as you are the writer. The remaining story of your life, career and circumstances are yet to be written, and chances are that if you don’t take the initiative and write the script yourself, others will do it for you; and who wants that?

If you are living someone else’s story then your story will fail to be your own.

Write your own script and be the one who directs it all as well. Nobody else can tell you what to dream – or what your goals and ambitions should be. Nobody else can tell you how to best maximize your talents, your skills or your energies. Most importantly, no one else can check things off of YOUR bucket list… only you can do that. Be the director and the one to call for “Action!” on the set that is your life.

And never forget that when it comes you YOUR life that you are the star! The line that Shakespeare wrote and which the band Rush paraphrased says, “All the world’s indeed a stage and we are merely players…” Would rather be prop on the stage or would you rather be the leading male or female character in your life? Again, the choice is yours. Shine on and be the star that you are meant to be!

Write your own story and if you don’t like the way it is then always be willing to rewrite it going forward. You always have that option. Never be afraid to reinvent yourself especially when life gives you the rare opportunity to do so. Be the one to call the shots in your life whether it’s “action” “cut” or “that’s a wrap” when it is time to do so. And most importantly, always cast yourself as the star and main attraction, because in your life… you truly are.
