Is your story a sad one, a trial of difficulties and hurtful experiences? I, for one, would love to know the values that you cling to; what matters in your life. Do you realize the power that your words and actions have and how you can impact others, whatever your chosen path is in life?
The Principles Of Life That Everyone Knows, But Only A Few Follow
Past, present and future, we have adventures, trials, failures, journeys and epic wins to share with people. We waste time on websites like Twitter becoming followers, on Facebook being fans , all while we could be leaders today. Everyone can make a positive difference in the world through storytelling.
Stories of interest, humor, intellect, science, art, sport, love and more. Our stories are unique, genuine and real. They are better told when we have the stage alone to ourselves. It certainly takes courage to tell your story- or any great story for that matter. Five years ago, a very good friend of mine invited me to join the young adult community at his church.
Not long after, there I was, nervous as can be, sharing my personal story with a room of 40 strangers. I shared the story of my life, how important faith is to me and the aspirations that drive me to be the man I am. I may have influenced the lives of people in that room and maybe I inspired others to pursue their dreams more fervently.

But it certainly made me feel better and I received very genuine, heartfelt praise afterwards. That moment served as a springboard for me to want to share more of story and my journey with others. The important thing is that I took the first step: I told my story- I gave it a shot. I encourage you to tell your story, when you feel the time is right. Trust me when I say, people want to hear it.
Story within a story
As I have learned, the world is demanding it! The fear of being judged keeps so many of us from taking a shot at our most ambitious dreams. I had to give up my fear of being judged and the need to be validated by certain people.

So in the grand scheme of things their judgment or approval was essentially meaningless. Once you give up your fear of judgment, your ability to work changes quite drastically. You become more present, productive, and start to gather creative momentum. You focus on the process, not the prize, and you start to see progress towards the life you want to live.
We all have a past. At some point, you have to give up whatever resentment you have towards people, circumstances, and experiences from your past. Otherwise, your future starts to look an awful lot like your past. When you give all that up, you end up ditching a lot of baggage.
You walk through the world with a sense of lightness, peace, and freedom that makes its way into everything else that you do. For years I was pissed off about all the bosses who fired me. When I finally gave up being pissed off, I realized these people had given me a gift, and lit a fire under my ass. When you give things up you create an opening in your life for other things. If you want to live life on your terms, in the long run, you might have to give some things up in the short term. It just means that you will have to sacrifice something that you value less than whatever it is you ultimately want.
You sacrifice comfort and security in the present, for uncertainty and a greater sense of possibility in the future.
But by giving up those things in the short run, I get to live on my terms in the long run. Even though he had to move to Maryland, that meant that he got to see his daughter every day. There is no formula. But you will sacrifice. Feeling lost and without purpose? Are you perpetually distracted from your real goals?

Time and the addictive feeling of certainty and security that come with a steady paycheck are just the tip of the iceberg. When we see the careers of professional athletes, what the media shows us is glitz and glamor, ESPN highlight reels, shoe commercials and more.
Decades of training and deliberate practice are the reality of becoming a professional athlete. Years of their lives are given up in pursuit of a dream.
Most of my friends who went to Berkeley did one of the following: They worked at prestigious firms like Mckinsey, Goldman Sachs, and Bain. If not the above, they went to Law School or Medical school. Most of this was all done before they turned Financial Security There is absolutely nothing more likely to dampen the prospects of becoming rich than a nice, fat, regular salary check.
