I love listening to people’s stories. There is so much richness and life listening to how people started their journey—how they overcame obstacles and how they are navigating their present reality.
Everyone has a story—a powerfully gripping and inspiring narrative. You have a story and the power of your story is what makes you the inestimable person you are. One of the things we need to do more often is celebrate our own story. If you take time to examine everything that had to take place in order for you to be where you are today—that’s a book of life lessons from which everyone can grow and become better versions of themselves.
And here is the interesting thing. No one has a monopoly on telling a great story. Yes, there are many prolific writers and celebrity authors whose stories seem more compelling and fascinating. But there is not a single person in the world who can tell your story the way you can.
It is your story, and no one has lived your experiences. Too often, we find pleasure in listening and recounting the story of others rather than taking time to celebrate our own story—the very thing that makes us unique and sets us apart from everyone else.
Tell your story to the world. There is something uniquely compelling about you. Give the world an opportunity to learn and grow from your story of happiness and overcoming. Harness the power of your story and create experiences that will inspire hope for a better and brighter tomorrow.
