Autobiography in Five Short Chapters
by Portia Nelson
 
Chapter 1
I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless. It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.
 
Chapter 2
I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend that I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in this same place. But it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.
 
Chapter 3
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I still fall in. It’s a habit. But my eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.
 
Chapter 4
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.
 
Chapter 5
I walk down another street.
 
There is GREATNESS within you
