They Need to Hear Your Story
Your Story Equals Freedom
When you share your story with others it can give you a sense of release and freedom, but even more it can uplift others so they realize they’re not alone and they can attain freedom, too! Disclosure is a often like walking at highwire though. If you share too much, you may fall or your audience may look away and leave. On the other hand, if done right, you can keep your readers, viewers, listeners and followers on the edge of their seats. They want to know how you’re achieving success or have had success before. And, they want to know that they can do it, too!
The key is discovering your story…the one that will be most impactful for those you want to help create positive change for. What do they need to hear about you and your journey? What was a rock bottom point for you that you were able to come back from? How can they do the same? Do you have methods that will help them do that?
Put Yourself in Their Shoes
Think about the people you writing it for. Put yourself in their shoes before writing your story. You’ve got to connect with them on a deep level, so they’re emotionally connected to you and they keep reading. When you tug on their heartstrings you have a real chance of inspiring them to take action for themselves.
But, how do you do that? Usually we need help discovering those vital pieces. Don’t try to do it on your own. You can find what I call “blind strengths” within your story and within yourself. Jump over and consider letting me help you discover yours! Click here!
