Backstory… A backstory, background story, back-story or background is a set of events invented for plot, presented as preceding and leading up to that plot. It is a literary device of a narrative history all chronologically earlier than the narrative of primary interest.
Who you are is a compilation of every thought, word and experience you have had to this point. And in the same way that we can't set a course to a destination without a starting point, neither can we move consciously into the Third Act without understanding what preceded it.
As you probe into each of the decades of your life, you will see it all - the good, the bad and the ugly. Viewing it from the present will provide a fantastic vantage point… and an opportunity to see how it has all combined to create the magnificence that is you.
This is the vital first step in creating your blueprint! We have to look at where we come from to start understanding where we are now in our lives. Because the more you understand this, the more you will understand some of the potential motivations toward what you are looking to create in your life.
Here is where we begin.
This exercise will bring you through each of the decades of your life. It is a comprehensive look at all of it - the good, the bad and the ugly.
You will find the exercises in this course are long... for good reason. You are the magnificent culmination of a myriad of thoughts, experiences... of LIFE! The richness that is you deserves to be unearthed, viewed and celebrated.
The workbooks are meant as guidelines. Make the work your own - if you do better writing stream of consciousness about each decade instead of answering questions, go for it! This is about you, and for you…
Take your time and go deep. You may be surprised at what you uncover.
Using the attributes that you gained from your Backstory, let's go one step deeper and uncover your gift. This is the great gift that experience has given you - not only for yourself, but for you to share with the world!
