Would you rather play a minor role in someone else’s story or the major part in your own?

If all the world’s a stage, and this life is your ‘one shot’, what’s it going to be?

I’m not saying you shouldn’t play a minor role.

If that should bring you joy and you leave this mortal coil satisfied that you did exactly what you wanted to do… great, go for it.

But if you believe you’re destined for a better role, a bigger part, then what are you waiting for?

You’re not doing yourself, or anyone, a favour by playing small.

What’s the part you were destined to play? Let me know in the comments. 

Lights, action, do it.

Be Brilliant!

    In principle I agree that one should either follow or forge a career, whichever is preferable. And I’m well aware the successful often say you have to keep on trying, despite the vast numbers of also-rans that life discards for one reason or another. But then, fate is the sum of all decisions and natural forces, so the end result is as much everyone else’s choice as your own.

    To bring people together. I thought I was a great writer and marketeer…I am good at both (I need to be for my business!). However, it’s bringing the right people together that does it for me. It comes naturally for which I am so grateful. It’s a joyous thing to be able to do

    The challenge that I personally face is trying to figure out where to target my one shot. I still find difficulty answering the question “What is my purpose?”.

    One life – Live it!
    Read ‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate ….. ‘ by Marianne Williamson – it’s inspirational.

    I’m going for the main role. I’m writing memoir and I will be the long suffering heroine of the piece and there are villains, mainly my family 😁
