“It’s important that we share our experiences with other people. Your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else. When you tell your story, you free yourself and give other people permission to acknowledge their own story.” – Iyanla Vanzant
Do you avoid sharing experiences where you have struggled, felt foolish or maybe appeared too boastful?
Do you believe your story is uneventful, commonplace or just not inspiring enough?
We all love a good story. We love hearing how good triumphs over evil or watching how a hero overcomes impossible obstacles. We crave stories of triumph over adversity. It is overcoming the struggle that is inspiring. Stories are one of the most powerful tools you can use to engage and connect with your audience. Stories resonate because they allow your audience to think… I’m not alone; that happened to me too!
The truth is people buy from the person with whom they share an emotional connection. The person they believe understands their pain, disappointments and struggles.
