042 How to create the life you want – Special podcast

Happy beautiful day.

Welcome to this special podcast called Create the future you want

In this episode, I share how we all love a good story. Right from early childhood, it is something we all latch on to and enjoy. That’s why we love films – because of the stories they tell and because we can identify with the characters. Have you ever dreamed of being Superman or Erin Brokovitch or Luke Skywalker?

A share the power of “The Hero’s Journe”

In 1949, American academic Joseph Campbell published a book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, based on his studies of myth and religion across the ages. He had discovered that all heroic tales have the same 17 stages and this Hero’s Journey, has been recognised ever since as the basic structure of all myth, legend, and literature.

That same pattern exists in your life too.

  • You are living your life
  • Something happens to change the status quo – perhaps an illness, or a challenge at work or some other change in your life.
  • You resist the change – you don’t want this change or the potential consequences.
  • You get help and support – from those who come on the journey with you or perhaps from a coach or mentor.
  • Things get really challenging
  • You learn from the experience and come through it stronger and better

What is the best movie in the world?

Right now, I invite you to think of your life as a movie.

As you look over your past, you can see the events and the point which fit the ‘plot’ above. But, don’t just think of your past movies.

Think of your future too.

You are the writer, the actor and the director of your own movie. What is the movie you want to create for your life? What is the story you want to tell? What adventures do you want to have?

Right now, in the movie of your life, I can guess that things are challenging – as they are for us all. Let this podcast give you the inspiration to go an make this next movie of your life an Oscar-winning performance.

We all love a good story. Right from early childhood, it is something we all latch on to and enjoy. That’s why we love films – because of the stories they tell and because we can identify with the characters. Have you ever dreamed of being Superman or Erin Brokovitch or Luke Skywalker?

We see a story unfold in two hours or so and it can inspire us. We can get great ideas from films as well as using them to detach from our own lives for a short while.

When you look a little closer at films, you start to see that all the stories follow a pattern – and it is pattern which has existed for thousands of years.

That means that now is the time to dig deep and find that inner strength we all have, to keep going in a crisis. Channel your inner-Rocky or your inner-Frodo or your inner-Maria-Von-Trapp and see the future you can create from this challenging time.
