When you woke up this morning, you did so as the character in a story that was halfway written. Everything up until now has been lead-in. Backstory. Setting the stage for what is happening next.
And you get to be the author of your own story. All that is in front of you are blank pages.
Despite what the critics may be whispering in your ear, how this story ends has not been determined.
The real question, then, is whether or not you're willing to pick up the pen and determine what happens to you and how the story plays out.
Will you write your own destiny, or will you sit by while others write it for you?
