Sometimes you’re faced with a tough situation. Maybe you chose to tackle a hard challenge (because you’re a fucking badass). Or maybe something stressful and unexpected happened in your life.
No matter what is going on in your life, here’s a little trick you can use to take the right action.
In really crazy situations, sometimes it’s really hard to know what you should do.
Instead of quitting, or giving up, or struggling, or hesitating (all of which will keep you from getting what you want), you can do this instead:
Imagine you’re a character in a story. Maybe instead of your life, imagine you’re a character in a movie or a book.
I like to imagine I’m a heroic character, a character with all the traits and habits that I’d like to have. (remember, you get to choose who you are!)
Then just ask yourself:
What would you hope this character does?
What outcome do you want for them?
What’s the right move?
What’s the brave choice, the fearless action?
Then answer those questions with your own action.
That’s how you become the hero of your own story.
