90-Day Goal: Day 42: Embrace Storylines

How do you answer the question, “How are you doing?”

If you are like me, then “good” or “fine” is a standard response. It’s the easiest way to move on and not get caught in a complex conversation when you are standing in line to mail a package. 

But in reality life is multi-layered and there is more to the story than “good.” Your 90-Day Goal might be going great, which is a big reason to celebrate! But things at work could be a real challenge or you could be struggling with friends at school.  

Understanding the Different Storylines of Your Life

Truth is that we experience life in different domains or, as we call them at Younique, storylines. In general, we talk about 4 areas of your life which include health, love, work and play. 

These are four areas of life we all have, need and experience simultaneously. While one or two  may need more energy or attention from us at any given moment, they are all four a part of our lives. 

Tip 42: Embrace Storylines.

Is your 90-Day Goal primarily related to your health, love, work or play? What makes answering that question, “How are you doing” challenging is that we can be doing great and terribly at the same time because we experience life in these different storylines simultaneously.

We can absolutely be thriving at work and only surviving in health. We can be reviving with respect to play and thriving in our love relationships.

As you crush your 90-Day Goal, allow yourself to experience the power and joy of progress in one storyline and not get discouraged if another storyline isn’t making the same progress. Just because all four storylines aren’t thriving doesn’t mean you are off track or losing with your life.

Your 90-Day Goal is helping you to live on mission and make your ultimate contribution.
