The fact is so many of us have wished we were somebody else a time or two in our life. We want their jobs, family, position, wealth, friends and even ministry. The problem arises when wishing and comparison becomes a daily way of thinking.
Today the challenge is on for you and I live the stories that God created us to live. We can’t live our best friends, bosses, or children’s stories so why do we try. It’s as if we wake up and feed our minds upon a daily diet of “I wish I were them” and “Their story is better than mine.”
Also if you’d like to dig in join me for The Four Surprising Secrets of People Who’ve Found Their Calling. It will be held at 2pm ET on Tuesday, March 17 and hosted by Jeff Goins.

Listen in and let’s decide to change our way of thinking and live our own story to the fullest.
2 keys to live your story
Do you find yourself comparing your life to others frequently? If so, I can surely relate. I grew up with a comparison syndrome, not realizing that comparison kills.
Learning how to live your own life story is scary.
1. You have a story.
Your unique story is there and just waiting for you to step in to it!
Psalm 139: 13:16 MSG:
Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.
Learn to be a confident individual by changing your thoughts.
Remember the movie, The Help? The statements the help had the children repeat are so valuable for us to repeat, as well. “You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”
Begin repeating today:
I am attractive.
I am an incredible person.
I am full of energy.
I have an incredible story to live.

2. Your story is important.
You are here to make a difference. Your story is important.
Your past is part of your story. Embrace it. 1 Corinthians 15:10 NIV, “By the grace of God, I am what I am.”
God can take your ordinary, everyday, plain jane self and make you extraordinary. You are so valuable.
Romans 12:1 MSG “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.”
Your story is fabulous and needs to be shared.
It is not when God writes your story, He has already written it so live it out with purpose. [click to tweet that]
