Where do your most meaningful stories come from? From your lived experience. They come from your childhood, your friends, travels or working life.
How do you identify the stories that move you? You don’t forget them. You see or hear something and it reminds you of that event or time in your life.
Take note of this and take a moment to explore this story.
Ask yourself –
Why do I keep coming back to this story?
What aspects of this story do I re-tell the most?
Does this story motivate me to do something different or remember what is important to me?
There are no easy answers to these questions. They are open to interpretation.
Your unique life is a well which you can draw on. All the wonderful stories you need to tell just waiting inside you.
Use them to illustrate a point in a presentation or create a blog post or explain your business to a prospective client.
Remember if it is important to you, it is important to someone else. It will resonate. Tell and share your story.
