Be the Scriptwriter of Your Life

Let others lead small lives, but not you.
Let others argue over small things, but not you.
Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.
Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.

— Jim Rohn

To help people write their dreams, I created the Life Dreams Success Journal. In it, I wrote that when it comes to self-direction, there are three kinds of people in this world.

First is the Moviegoer.

This person watches the movie of her life, admires some parts and criticizes other parts. Aside from that, she does nothing else. All shesays the whole day is, “I like this thing but I don’t like that thing.” The Moviegoer feels she has absolutely no control of her life—except to
comment about it. Moviegoers are the most pathetic, miserable people in the world.

Second is the Actor.

This person doesn’t only watch the movie of her life. She actually realizes she’s the Actor—and can control a big part of her life. She can actually make or break the movie—by how well she delivers her lines and by how she portrays her character. Actors are a happy bunch. They realize they’re the star of the show and enjoy some level of control. But many times, they wish the movie would end in another way—but realize that they have no say in such things.

Third is the Actor-Scriptwriter.

Let me ask you this question: Who are you among these three people?
Do you merely watch your life go by?
Or do you act a script that you feel has been handed to you?
Or do you write the script and make your life beautiful?
Friends, make a decision now to become the Scriptwriter of your life.
God wants you to be the Scriptwriter.
Create the life you were meant to live.
By the way, you might be asking: Where is God in the movie?
He’s the Producer. He says, “Make the movie beautiful. Here’s the budget…”
He then gives you a thick, fat checkbook with blank checks—but all pre-signed.
“Just put whatever figure you need.” Yes, my friend, He has given you all
that you need for success. Start using God’s checkbook now!
Write your dreams.

Be the Scriptwriter of your life.
