The Lyrics of Life
The song of your life will either be lyrical or banal.
The aim of this seminar is –
To help you comprehend that your life is a story and the more lyrically you can perform it, the better it will be.
You might be inspired to know that all of the lyrics you have been exposed to have been crafted. They are works of competence, intention and cause. The hard work of thinking required to make something memorable.
When you are gone if the only person whose life is memorable to you was you, your life may not have been as lyrical as it should have been. Do the lyrics come after the music or does the music come after the lyrics?

Why is your life that way and what do you as your life’s lyricist think about this?
The mantra for this seminar is –
If you are not the lyricist of your life, nobody else will be.
The how of this seminar centers on –
Why being a consumer of lyrics, but never the creator, you will become what you eat.
