I would spend hours of my time weekly watching the fantasies unfold, the drama build, and the suspense capture my imagination.
Now we have Netflix and Hulu, so we can all binge watch all our favorite shows. But there's still an absorbent amount of time being spent watching stories that take us away from our own real lives.
At some point, we have to stop trying to escape our own lives and start TAKING ACTION toward making our own realities just as desirable, exciting, and captivating as the characters in these fictional shows!!
Is your life captivating?
Is your life exciting?
Is your life the one you truly desire?
What story is playing out on the screen of your life???? Would someone want to binge watch what you are doing?
That's the kind of life I challenge us all to create!!!!
Over the past few years, I stopped watching television all together (like, really.... I watch nothing now!) and I've adopted some new habits instead. This has been so much better for my mental and emotional well-being. It has also helped me vision for the future of all that is possible for my life, which is pretty darn desirable, exciting, and captivating if I do say so myself.
If you've been following me for some time, you already know I'm a book junkie. I can't walk away from a great book. I can't go into a book store and leave empty handed!! While I still love a great mystery and fiction story from time to time, my new obsession is personal growth & development.
I believe developing personal growth habits ..... investing in yourself!!!.... is the single thing that will change the script in your life. Whether is reading books, attending seminars/retreats, taking a class, hiring a coach-- It can crack you wide open to see the possibilities in your own life that are crazy exciting and captivating!!!
I want to see THAT story when you start playing it.
Currently, I am reading "The Compound Effect" by Success Magazine founder Darren Hardy.
Consistency over Time is the principle he teaches.
Sticking with it even when nothing seems to be changing/improving.
Not giving up!!!!
If I'm honest (and I'm going to be), consistency is something I've lacked. I tend to fly to the next idea before I've finished the first one and seen it through.
Sure, I get things done and have success.... but to reach the goals I have that are desirable, exciting, and captivating-- I must have consistency.
Luke & Laura broke up in the end. Sonny went crazy and Brenda left town. The stories got boring & stale so the writers had to kill off the characters we loved.
Don't let your own story play out the same way. Keep challenging yourself to grow!!!! Do better, be better, and take inspired action towards that which will captivate you and everyone around you!!!
We only get one shot at living our lives. Let's make it a story worth telling ❤️
