Have you ever read a book or seen a movie and were disappointed with how it ended?
Clients sometimes tell me they don’t like how their life has ended up.
They feel down and dejected.
I feel pumped up and excited.
Because it isn’t the end of the story.
The last page hasn’t been turned.
The credits aren’t rolling.
They are still breathing.
They can create an ending to their story different than what they see in front of them.
When I tell some people this they aren’t pumped up because they start talking about all the things that have happened in their life that they never planned on.
For the record, I don’t know of anyone who planned out their life and everything went according to that plan. It just doesn’t happen.
When we write a better ending for a movie or a book, we don’t throw out everything that happened in the storyline. We just change what happened at the end.
If we changed everything up to the end, it wouldn’t be the same story.
We want to keep our story, it is what makes us unique.
When we write a new ending, we don’t change what has happened, we use what we have learned from our experiences, mistakes, and opportunities to create the ending we desire.
We can do this because we aren’t the same people we were at the beginning of our story.
If you need help writing a different ending to your story, join us over at Live On Purpose Central.
Who knows, with the new ending, you might find a new beginning.
