Rev Bob Luckin writes some great daily guides for Science of Mind magazine. In one, he laid out some rules for writing a good book and how easily they apply to living your life. Let’s see what gems he has to guide the book of life you’re writing this year!
1. You are the main character in your life story. Without you, there can be no story.
2. Fully develop your character every day and in every way; the depth and richness of your story is dependent on this.
3. Don’t allow yourself to get lost between the lines of other peoples’ lives.
4. Unless your book is about living a mundane, trivial life, don’t spend your time on trivia and stuff you don’t really care about.
5. Understand that being the main character requires you to take good care of yourself.
6. All good writers know that no matter how tall the mountain, treacherous the river or deep the hole, there is a way out. Remember, you are the author.
7. Most heroes feel unprepared, ill-equipped, and uncertain of the journey. If you feel unprepared, ill-equipped, and uncertain of your journey, you are in exactly the right place!
8. You are not a book reviewer, so don’t spend your time being a book critic.
9. Completing your book will take your entire lifetime.
Amen! While each one speaks to me on some level, I’d say numbers 7, 6 & 3 (with a dash of 8) spoke a little louder. What about you?
