We all have a vision for our perfect future and we all believe our story is the truth. However I suppose we all know (and agree) that the world as we see it is a personal view. We all experienced how in a seemingly same situation you share with other people, we all remember different things, we notice different things, we feel different things.
If not we would all read the same books, watch the same programs, do the same hobbies, eat the same food, drink the same drinks, go on holiday together, be colleagues and what is worse, fall in love with the same people.
Imagine ! It is great that the world is diverse and that we have people we connect with and others that might have other visions.
When you dare to share and align your story with other people’s stories, you might connect. But how can you reach the right people? For me it is about taking the time to learn ”your” people’s hopes and dreams. What’s important to them? How do they want their world to change? What needs to happen for them to make the world a better place.
It varies from person to person how clear the future is in your mind. For me my future shapes while living my life. With every step I take, sometimes in the right direction and sometimes we make mistakes, I have the feeling to become more me and to live more from my core.
And the summum would be the ability to do what we want, when we want, with the people we are passionate about.
And even though the right way for you seems the only way, we should be aware that the ‘right’ way is what we create inside our own heart. Unless something interrupts your narrative and shakes you to the core, you stick with your story.
In other words, it is a fact until you have a reason to doubt it. Our friends have something in common with us — something important. Values & Convictions. Something important to gather around, talk about, and celebrate.
So instead of trying to please everyone, strive to please the people that matter instead, so when you share your story, tell it to the right people.
