Every powerful story has a villain.
Someone or something the main character needs to contend with to overcome some internal or external struggle they are facing.
This could be an individual
A personal addiction
It could be distractions or you could even view time as the villain in your story.
The point is, in so many ways, this story plot plays out over and over again in your daily life, often without realising
In your story, you are the hero, the main character.
And like the main character in any film or piece of literature, you are faced with a nemesis of some sort.
But how often do you take the time to identify whom or what this nemesis is?
If you are to be the hero in your story, what challenges do you now need to overcome to finally set yourself free?
This is the question you should be asking yourself, and once realised, you'll also begin to appreciate that every good story also has a guide to help you get to where you need to be.
Some kind of mentor figure that helps you contend with all the challenges that you’re experiencing.
