You need to be obsessed with your life story. Obsessed with writing your own life story to be exact. I know it seems like I’ve said the same thing twice for effect but actually the two are very different. Let me first start by getting the obvious ‘’but’’ out of the way. The one that says that by being obsessed with your own life story you are being selfish, inconsiderate and a narcissist. None of which is true. You are by all means doing the best you can for everyone in your life. Being obsessed with your own life story is not selfish, it is needed in order to write a My Story Of I that you’ll be happy to tell.
The difference between writing your life story and writing your own life story
Now this is not a scientifically proven difference or anything like that. This is what I have noticed in the time I have been writing My Story Of I. Your life story is the one that you think is ‘’right’’, you know the one that you’ve set up in order to comply with society and all its demands and needs. The life that many have traveled before you. Your own life story is the one that you have to be writing. The one that lives in your heart. The life you’re dreaming about but for some reason are not living at the moment. Your truth, your My Story Of I.
You need to be obsessed with writing your own life story because you only have one life. I know it sounds incredibly cheesy but it is true. You only got one life. Just ONE time to go do everything your heart desires, experience all life has to offer and meet all the wonderful people meant to cross your path. We all are so busy counting on tomorrow, after college or after retirement that we’re making precious time pass us by on PURPOSE. Instead of us living a purposeful life.
It is high time to start making decisions that make sense with the story that you run in your head. Yes the story that goes something along the lines of ‘’If I didn’t have to work / go to school..’’ or ‘’If I didn’t have to pay..’’. The if-story that is keeping you from writing your own life story. When you become obsessed with writing your own life story, you force yourself to find solutions and ways around the initial and future problems that you’ll face. Why and How?
The why and how are in the beauty of being obsessed. Whatever it is you are trying to do, obtain or achieve becomes a must. In other words, not succeeding is no longer an option. Well it’s the option that can’t be an option. Success, however you personally define that, is the only option. By becoming obsessed with writing your own life story you will enable yourself to start hammering on giving life to those (worn out) fantasies. Which is the ONLY thing to do that is right.
Writing your own life story, to me at least, is directly tied to creating your own happiness. In the beginning I said that by writing your own life story you’d be doing the best thing for everyone in your life, which is true. Happiness is the right kind of contagious. The happier you become to be alive and living the more you can give, spread and share this happiness with others. Remember you cannot pour from an empty cup so become obsessed with filling your cup so you can over spill in other people their cup.
I cannot stress this enough. This moment is promised, the next is not nor is the next hour or tomorrow. Making the best of your own life should be your priority minute by minute to say it in extreme terms. By becoming obsessed you will actively and consciously seek out what it is you need, want and desire. Which means you’ll also stop saying yes to things that are of no importance to you. This is needed in order to write a story that you’re absolutely 100% happy to have lived and are willing to share with everyone who is willing to hear.
Become obsessed with writing your own life story, it can only benefit you. Love yourself and celebrate your life everyday.
