The best story ever has yet to be written but here’s the best news:
The Best Story Ever is yours
Even if your story has been magnificent up ‘til now the best story ever is yet to come.
But… but… but, you say…
My life is in shambles
I’ve hit rock bottom
I can’t make it one more day
To which, I say:
And before you get the chance to ask me if I’ve lost my mind, I remind you:
The Best Story Ever Starts That Way
Think about it. Don’t we cheer for the hero of the best story ever, when all seems lost, when it appears there is no chance and he or she is exhausted, left for dead, and hoping that their next breath would be their last?
I just can’t do it
Whether we’re turning the page or sitting in a theater on the edge of the seat, we’re waiting, anticipating, even praying for the hero of the best story ever… While we can’t wait to see
What Happens Next
If you’re in the depths of despair, have lost it all and can’t imagine having the will to go on, then
In all the best books, best movies and the greatest stories ever told, if not the opening scene, this moment – the moment that you are experiencing, right now – is the pivotal moment in the best story ever. And YOU are the hero.
This is how to start a story that captivates and mesmerizes all who gain access, whether it’s around a campfire, seen on the big screen, on stage, television, read in a printed book or online, your situation is among the best scenes in all great stories.
A few of the best scenes from movies exemplifying this type of pivotal moment that quickly come to mind include Alien, Amélie, Back to the Future, Die Hard, E.T. The Extraterrestrial, Erin Brockovich, Gladiator, Gravity, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, It’s a Wonderful Life, Indiana Jones, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Lord of the Rings, Rocky, Star Wars, Still Alice, The Matrix, The Princess Bride, The Terminator, and I could go on and on… and I think you could think of some, too…
Whether your pivotal moment leads to an instantaneous resolution or opens up an entirely new journey to unfold is yet to be seen but one thing’s for certain, something far greater than could ever be imagined in that critical point in time lies just beyond.
When all is lost, you are left for dead face-down on the mat and you can barely hear the referee (who sounds somewhat like the Grim Reaper) begins the long count,
When you can’t find the will to go on and you think you might just be better off dead…
You try to move your body, but can feel it unresponsive…
You review your decision to bet it all on this match, and where did that get you? Here?
You think of all the promises you made… Now, that all is lost…
Your past flashes in your mind; there have been good times and bad…
It feels like it would be okay to let it go. At least death would be the end of the pain.
One last look before your unsaid, “goodbye,” and you’re out for good…
As you find the strength to open a small slit in your eye, the initial blinding flash of light fades and you see…
Whatever it is that you see in that moment ushers in hope and determination to go on, as you push yourself up from the mat
This is your defining moment, your Number Nine.
Number 9, number 9, number 9…
The crowd goes wild!
What happens next?
The best story ever is just beginning…
