How does your favorite story start?
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
"There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it."
"The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house.
All that cold, cold, wet day."
This week is the opening line of this year of your life. What story will you write? How are you starting that story now?
Sometimes the way a story starts tell you a lot about how the story ends. But plenty of stories with great endings have humble beginnings. What’s most important to remember is that without a beginning you can’t have a story at all.
So if you’ve got pockets lined with goals and a heart full of resolve, don’t forget to start at the beginning. Even if the best start you can muster is a small one.
