What’s Your Story?

What’s Your Story?

by -

Our life coach columnist says everyone has a story to tell and explains the best way to tell it.

Remember those dreaded book reports and term papers required in school. And if you went into higher education you had research reports and thesis to write. Challenging, to say the least. Writing is a passion for so many and all the documents that have been created over time is incredible.  In today’s world, anyone can write and publish their work and spread it like wildfire throughout the world.

As I grow and expand my business, I find that I am writing more often then when I started.  When I first start teaching others the five-step formula for Find Your Own D.R.I.V.E., others encouraged me to put it into book form.  

Since that time, I have published the second revision of the self-help book and have two other books that I have been a contributing author. Pretty exciting considering that wasn’t my passion to write or to be published.  

Why do I share this with you?

I truly believe we all have a story to tell.  If you are someone that prays, writes in a journal, or tells others detailed stories about your experiences, that’s where the story begins.  It lies beneath what you know to be true and lands on the ears of others who are inspired, motivated, and encouraged by your words.

Without the publications of stories, you would not know about world history, research and advances, your family tree, or other key information to allow us to thrive in your life today. 

So, I ask — is there a gift inside of you that you want to tell? Don’t allow the story inside you to die with you —tell the world! Consider starting with a Blog.  Blogging is one of the fastest ways to create a sense of influence for others and easy to start.

If you are struggling to write, do it anyway. If you think you have a story and don’t know where to start, just start. If you want to create a blog, book, or journal, do that! You make it happen.  Don’t delay, don’t second guess, step into your story and begin to write because the world needs that special message that only you can give.
