Once upon a time, the the story begins, but it is what comes thereafter that determines the success or failure of the book. Great authors try to choose intriguing characters and subjects. Fascinating characters and subjects make for bestselling novels! My question, for us all is, what character do we bring to work each day? In your meditations and prayers, each evening, do you ever stop to look at the wonder of your life; the highs, the lows, the loves and the heartbreaks, the glories and the tragedies? Every moment of your precious life has been spent gathering information and wisdom. Through all of our senses we not only perceive but we grow from that which swirls around us. If we are to serve others, at the very highest level, we must come to know ourselves first. Who is the server? What makes us great? What have we learned? What have we yet to learn? What have we shared and what do we have yet to share? Your life story is the nourishment of your performance and the character of your being. It must not written by others. We must be the ones holding the pen!
