We each carry a story within.
Wherever we are, whatever we are doing, whoever we are with.
We encounter or avoid, we connect or disconnect through this story – whether we carry it consciously or unconsciously.
The story is not fixed, though. Three ways in which we can significantly alter it are through developing our character, being open to diversity and identifying a purpose greater than ourselves with which to wrestle and overcome.
The best stories have deep character, are diverse and varied, and involve conflict – there is something to overcome.
All three together make for a story that makes fire and brings change.
