Your life is a story and you are the author of that story. How will you go about taking all of the material – your insights, failures, pains, elations – and weave it into a beautiful story?    It’s tempting to create a story that others will want to read, but the pursuit of a story that leads to mass adoption and approval often ends in tragedy. The pursuit of a story that is beautiful to you, that you can weave in with the other stories of those you care most deeply about, often leads to redemption.    In this episode, Steph and Chad discuss ideas on becoming the author of your own life, learning to laugh at yourself, forgiveness, faith, and making your life the story you would love to read.   --- Mission.org is an original content studio and network of podcasts designed to level up your health, wealth, and wisdom.

Your inner situation and psyche hold immense power. If we don’t commit to exploring this thoroughly, it will explore itself. Becoming conscious of this is the ultimate challenge. The place to start the journey is often with what you think makes you “special”. This might be your phobias, talents, limitations, anything that makes you unique. Often, your greatest weakness lies at the beginning of the trail towards your highest super-power.  Finding what makes you “special” is a rich and rewarding pursuit. This path of individuation can be a path that leads you to your superpowers (what you can do that no one else can do).  Daily Mission: Think about your specials and weaknesses, and explore how they lead to things only you can do, notice, see, perceive… How does following this thread become your superpower? --- You can subscribe to our weekly newsletter at mission.org and find us on the socials at @TheMissionHQ.
