Write Your Own Story — The Renaissance Life Model

What’s the model I follow to pursue a Renaissance Life?

Decide who I want to be,

— who I am, what’s important to me, the traits / virtues I want, what I want to do.. all leading towards the best I can be) 

— who I want to be is a decision I make.

Take daily action steps towards being the best me,

— do what I can, stay consistent, and think long term over short term 

— Remember that you make your own change (You Are Your Own Renaissance)

And resolve to pursue excellence and mastery in all that I do,

— even through hard day’s, challenges, pain and obstacles I may face 

Always with the goal of impact in mind.

— On my life, other’s lives, and the world 


We can’t control our entire life, but we can shape it by our models of thinking.

To be who we want to be, we must write our own story.



“You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.” — Marianne Williamson


“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” — Marcus Aurelius
