We Are All Story Tellers
We Are All Storytellers...
We all tell stories about ourselves and about the world we live in everyday. These stories are the clues that provide incredible insight into your subconscious mind and are a road map to spotting your fears, desires & ambitions. When you take the time to understand the stories you are telling and the narrative being used, you can then write your future life story through a new lens that has you seeing the world and yourself differently.
While there are many genres to consider in writing your life story, the issue that I see with most genres is they have you focusing on your past and looking back at your life, rather than looking ahead.
I would have you consider writing your story through conscious thought and a futuristic lens, rather than one that is focused on the unchangeable past. As you look ahead to imagine your future self and the life you deeply desire you are able to create from a fresh perspective in the present moment. You are also able to be aware of any unconscious storytelling and can be vigilant in spotting your default behavioral patterns that can keep you from telling the story you truly desire. It is through this lens that you can become your own self proclaimed author.
3 Steps For Future Storytelling:
Creative Imagining: To begin writing a story that is set in the future, you have to start by imagining a future world. What sparks inspiration for you? What do you want to experience & create that brings you excitement & joy? Start with a simple list of what this looks like. Then write in detail and provide specifics about each item on your list.
Mindful Writing: Make a list of what makes your future world different from today? There is always a gap from where you are and where you want to be. Identifying the gap helps you see what it is that you want and what you need to focus on to bridge the gap. Then get clarity on what you need to do each day to create this future life for yourself. Have a cue that can remind you daily.
Conscious Storytelling: What will it feel like to live in this future world with all that you want and desire? Feel it and allow yourself to see it each day. Write it, speak about it and believe it is already happening. Your future story is being created now. When you come from this space, you get to your future place. Be aware of your thoughts and your words and how they are helping to create your future.
The truth is, you are the only author who can write your ideal story. Your story isn’t about making it to the “Best Sellers'' list, it is about telling a story that is filled with extraordinary experiences, incredible people, and magnificent memories all created by you!
