What’s your story?
I wish I could sit with you right now and hear it from you.
We all have a bit of humor in our stories, as well as some drama.
We all have our ups and downs, wins and losses.
There’s a bit of comedy, tragedy, and history in all of us. But overall, each of our lives tells a larger story.
What do you want your story to say?
A point occurs in the movie where George experiences a moment of crisis,
and he comes to believe that everyone around him would be better off if he had never been born.
What he’s really saying is that his life doesn’t matter.
The great twist in the story occurs when, with the help of an angel,
George gets a chance to see what his town and others’ lives
would look like if he had never existed. Without him, it’s a dark and
negative place. George comes to recognize the positive impact he had
made because, time after time, he took action to do what he knew
was right and helped other people.
As Clarence the angel tells him, “Each man’s life touches so many other lives.”
George had touched many lives in small ways and made a difference.
Have you looked at your life from that angle? Have you thought
about what you want your life story to be? Do you believe you can
live a life of significance, that you can do things that really matter?
Can you make your story great?
With all my heart, I believe the answer to these questions is yes.
You have it within your power to make your life a great story, one of significance.
very person can. Regardless of nationality, opportunity,
ethnicity, or capacity, each of us can live a life of significance.
We can do things that matter and that can make the world a better place.
I hope you believe that.
