Take just a moment to think about the story other people tell about you. I know, we’re not supposed to be overly concerned with what other people think about us, but it can be important. How would your competition tell your story? How would your peers? Your family? Be honest.
Are you happy with the story they’re telling? Is it accurate (more accurate than you’d like to admit)? If this story is the story that is forever linked to you, would you be ok with that?
Yes? Excellent! Rock on my friend!
No? It’s never too late to change your story. Decide what kind of ending you want to have and decide what you need to do to get there. Then do it.
One of the great things about stories is that they can be rewritten. As long as you’re willing and able you can change your story. Focus on the areas that need improved, get the word out that you’ve made changes. Commit yourself to making changes and stick with it. It’s never too late to get a better ending.
