“If you’re life were a book, and you were the author…..how would you want your story to go?”

What would you write?

Where would you go?

How would you grow?

Who would you meet?

What challenges would would you overcome in the direction of your dreams?

Would you make it one smooth move…up, up and away?

Or would it be full of twists, turns and surprises that made for a more rewarding ride?

What would the last page say?

And if we read your book…..what lesson would we learn about writing our own.

I’m addicted to TED talks.

I’m not going to lie.

But this may be my favorite one ever.

Because in the short space of 9 minutes….it tells a story that each of us intimately understands.

Life is full of opportunities.

And maybe….somewhere in a space that seems far fetched to comprehend – each of us, in the truest sense, really are author of our own obstacles.

And that PASSION is powerful.

And poetic.

And that pain and progress are often perfect partners in a story so many of us will never understand.

So if your life were a book –

And you ARE the author…..

What would you write?

I am an author, artist and entrepreneur. My 2 passions are writing about, and teaching Marketing and Meditation. I like to think I'm a lot like Eckhart Tolle, if only he was taller, and a much better tennis player. (it turns out in person, he's super short, has a terrible backhand and wears this weird scottish hat thingy that makes it really difficult to concentrate while serving) Plus he refuses to keep score and says " it's always NOW" when you ask who is up. Enough about me. We barely know each other. Stop staring. You're making me nervous.
