#6 - I Have Nothing Important To Say
Everyone has a story to tell, a
story that could change lives. The unfortunate part is
that most of these stories will never be heard, because
most people either think that their story isn’t
important, or they just don’t have the skill or
confidence they need to stand up and speak in front of
an audience to bring their story to life.
Everyone has had successes,
failures, victories and challenges. Everyone has been
happy, sad, hurt and angered. All you need to do is find
the wisdom in the lessons you have gained from your life
experience and share them with the world. Each of our
journeys is unique, never before seen and never to be
repeated. Start thinking of your daily activities as a
series of lessons, and you will see that you have a
wealth of information to share with this world. The
world needs to hear your story, and we need to hear it
In chapter three, we’ll discuss
how to find the profound in the mundane, by finding life
lessons in everyday events to which most people pay
little attention. There are lessons all around you,
every single day, and these are lessons you can share
with others, lessons that could change lives.
Zig Ziglar once said, “You are
who you’re and where you’re because of what has gone
into your mind.” To find your story, take stock of where
you are in your life, and of the person you have become.
What events have transpired in your life that molded
your character and beliefs? What teachers have
influenced you during your life, and what lessons did
they teach you? What successes or failures have you
experienced, and what did you learn from them?
Each one of us has a lifetime of
lessons to share, and the best way to share your life is
in your own words. People want to hear your story. They
want to know what you know and how you learned it.
So, what’s the lesson? You have a
lifetime of lessons to share so don’t be afraid to share
