Over the past few months, I’ve become keenly aware of the importance of sharing your story. I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with other entrepreneurs and nurses and writers and no matter what industry I’ve connected with, at the heart of all of them was the benefit of communication and community.
We are designed for relationship and must glean from one another in order to grow, develop and move beyond our current position. It’s as simple as sharing an idea with a colleague or friend and receiving fresh insight and new perspective.
I recognized that I had been stuck in my own mind on a few matters that caused me to waste a significant amount of time and energy. All of which was obliterated with a few quick conversations from those who understood the path I’m on.
And it made me wonder how many people come to the end of their days stuck in the same place, on the same thought, in the same cycle because no one shared their story with them. No one took the time to say, hey, there’s a better way. Or you know what, here’s another way to look at that. Or, simply, may I tell you what I experienced?
These interactions and conversations are powerful and give life to ideas, situations and real lives.
Who needs what you have? Who needs who you are? Who’s waiting on your story to break them through to the next level of their life. We are all dependent upon one another. So when you choose not to help or share or talk, you are withholding your deposit and passing up the chance to invest in someone’s life.
Let’s embrace the significance of storytelling and allow our words, insight & experiences to change lives.
