Never forget that you are the star of your own show.

Imagine that your life is a TV show.

It could be a comedy, drama or reality show. (I encourage you not to make it a murder mystery. Or Cops. Or My 600-pound life.)

Each episode of your show would tell the latest stories of your life. There would be a storyline about your personal life, your career, your family, and the progress you are making on that big ambition of yours.

This is very much how life works. That’s why Jerry Seinfeld was always dating women way out of his league on his show. Because he got to choose the details of his life. And so do you.

Call Action today.

The Credits

When the credits roll at the end of your show it will say that:

You are the writer of the story.

You are the director.

You are the editor.

You chose the cast. Which means that you also get to decide who gets killed off, who makes guest appearances, and who plays your love interest. #WWJSD?

You produce the whole thing. The greatest job you will ever have is producing all the great things that happen in your life. Because they won’t happen without you.

Starring You!

But most importantly, you are the star of the show. Never forget that. It is your storyline, your growth, and the challenges that you take on that people tune in to see. Yes, you will make appearances on other people’s shows. But in your show, you are the star. You are Lucy, Seinfeld or Matlock. You are not a supporting actor.

Remember this quote.

If you don’t star in your own life, who is going to?

-Dr. Phil McGraw
Remember that Dr. Phil went from guest starring on Oprah to creating his own hit show, where his mustache was his guest star.

Key Takeaway

You get one life. You have to star in it. Make your story more interesting every day. Take on bigger and better challenges. Create exciting plot twists. Let your setbacks set you up for even greater success. And make us all tune in to see what happens next.

  1. As an old “75 year-old, this is a great daily message to live by. Every day I get older, I know how important it is to speak up and leave your mark, before it’s too late. The years creep up quickly.
