The Next Chapter of Our WA Life Narrative.
Kia Ora, from New Zealand, friends and colleagues
If we think of our lives as narrative, as stories we write, then have we considered what the next chapter theme will be, and how they next chapter is to have real meaning for us?
Carrying on with my values theme, of the last four posts, this fifth in the series suggests that we might look at our values as extension of our narratives. Our values are where we draw the themes from, that provide the meaningful threads of our lives stories.
Those elements of our stories to date such as, challenges overcome, opportunities missed or taken and conquered, the bittersweet juxtaposition of love and loss, these are all way points in our lives as journeys of experience and discovery.
We can't yet know the details of the next chapter of our stories. Anything might happen in the next few minutes that could completely change the perhaps expected but unfulfilled content.
However, we most certainly do know the themes, the underlying meaning of what comes next is known to us, because it’s is shaped by the values we choose to live by.
As we get older and the narrative becomes richer and we draw on our perpetually expanding back story, so our values develop and mature and become more solid and dependable and they shape that next chapter.
Are we content that we are in control of the narratives themes or if we look closely do we follow the easy way and let others control our narrative?
Only you will know, but shaping what comes next is all the more achievable if we know, understand and own our value set and therefore the themes of the narrative of our lives.

What this means in the context of our WA experience is taking responsibility for what we do and how we do it. Thousands of members have been through these portals and been successful.
Sadly though it is a fact that not all are.
But I would wager a large sum on the guess that those who have been successful, understand fully their narrative themes, and have, and are, shaping their future on a daily basis, taking full advantage of the opportunity, rather than leaving it to chance, and then looking for a scapegoat when success escapes them.
