I bet you have a story to tell.
What would be the cost to you in your life if you choose not to tell your story?
What would you like to share with the people who know you–and those who don’t?
Author and coach Christopher Connors asks those questions, and goes on to say this:
Of all the things that you can do to make the world a better place, few things are more valuable and beneficial than telling your story. No one can tell your story better than you can. Chances are, you will help others and yourself in the process.
You may think your own stories are not important or exciting enough. But consider who you might inspire by sharing about your career or your schooling or your parenthood, your marriage, your divorce, your singlehood, your health, your struggles and triumphs, your failures and what you’ve learned and how you made it through, your story of coming to faith and losing your faith and then getting it back again in a whole new wrapper. ..and more.
The worst mistake we can make in life is thinking that other people don’t care what we have to say, says Connors. There’s so much to lose by living in fear and passing on the opportunity to impact the lives of others.
