This Book Will Change Your Life.
I read the book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. I gained a new perspective on my life, I started living it differently. The main character, Don, hooks up with two filmmakers who want to make a movie of his life. One problem: his life is boring. People want to read a good story. Exciting events make a good story. The author, Donald Miller says “A good story (or life) is about a character who wants something and overcomes conflicts to get it.” I AM THE MAIN CHARACTER of my life. There are many things I want, and I am fully aware of the conflicts I must overcome. I am also the author of my life. I’m in control of how boring or exciting my life will be. I look at my calendar and now I see scenes in a movie. People I come in contact with are characters in my movie. When I have the chance to say yes or no to an offer, I realize I’m mapping the next chapter of my book. I seek rich experiences, motivating people, and beautiful scenery. I am looking to write a better story that will be interesting to me and others that look at my movie or book. As a result others will want to read my story too.
