Truly Powerful People (335)

335.
Join me in inspiring truly powerful people. Each day I will add a new thought, story or idea to support your quest and mine.

There is a story that starts like this: The salmon of knowledge was a magic fish. The first person to taste the salmon would be the wisest person in Ireland. Its skin was the color of gold. Its eyes were magic. A lot of people tried to catch it but they failed.

What happens next?

There is another story that starts like this: For months the young woman had been abused, pushed around and cursed and through it all she’d managed to maintain her calm. But now, as the cook had her backed into a corner, a cleaver inches from her face, she resolved that she must defend herself. She must fight back.

What happens next?

And yet another story that begins like this: A long time ago there lived a king who was famed for his wisdom through all the land. Nothing was hidden from him, and it seemed as if news of the most secret things was brought to him through the air. But he had a strange custom; every day after dinner, when the table was cleared, and no one else was present, a trusty servant had to bring him one more dish. It was covered, however, and even the servant did not know what was in it, neither did anyone know, for the king never took off the cover to eat of it until he was quite alone.

What happens next?

How does your story start? How does it start today? What’s the challenge obvious from the very beginning? Are you trying to be the wisest? Are you backed into a corner and out of options? Do you carry a secret that you need to protect? What happens next? It’s a great question! It is the question that defines us as human, it is the question at the base of Mount Curiosity. Where do you want your story to go from here? What happens next?
