Write your own story

Each and every single one of us is an author, whether we realize it or not.

We write our own stories every day.

The thing is, no one likes a boring story - they have enough stress to worry about already. Instead, they are looking to learn from or be entertained by people who are extraordinary and go above and beyond the mundane sameness of everyday life.

This is why you should play an active part in writing your own story right now.

Not tomorrow, not next month or even next year.

Now.

Think about it this way:

Would you want to read the story of your life? Would it help others?

If not, now is the time to do something about it, because if you don’t write and edit your own story, someone else will do it for you.


Take a chance

A friend of mine reached on out Snapchat yesterday about a job (because it's the 21st century and, you know, messaging apps).

He came across a job in St. Louis and wanted to apply, but he was underqualified.

This got me thinking.

If there's one thing I've learned over the past decade, it's that no one actually knows what they're doing.

Sure, someone may seem like they have their shit together online, but in reality, they're just as clueless as the rest of us. They have cracks and flaws (some even make a living from exploiting them - i.e. comedians). 

At the end of the day, we're all human and we're trying our best to find our own way.

Keep this in mind when you're looking for your next opportunity, and it might not seem as daunting.

Take that chance, apply for that job, put yourself out there.

Personally, I'd rather regret doing something than not doing something.
