Being the main character of your own story

Isn't that the story of everyone life?


A person see the world from his own point of view. With lot of internal dialogue with self.  Then he read a lot of books on being the "chosen one" as the main theme of the books. From Stars Wars to Harry Potter, there seems to be the destiny of the core characters to do certain great things.


That all and well, as long as these central characters don't treat other people as secondary characters or nameless characters that assist him to get to his "destiny".


As we all know, the seemingly nameless characters are all the core characters in their own stories. To negotiate with that kind of persons in the real world is sometimes difficult, and sometime hilariously funny.


So while being the "lead character" in your life, remember every single person you will ever meet think like that too, at least most of them.
