What does it mean to tell your story?
Your audience or brand will be greatly influenced by the story you tell. Your story is a way to connect with and impact those who hear it. It is a privilege to share your story with others and it’s essential to understand and think about what story (or stories) you want to tell the world and how you want it told.
Telling a story can be challenging at times, especially when you don’t feel like you have the perfect words to express yourself. So ask yourself, “Is what I’m trying to tell a story or just an experience I’m still going through?” Remember that there are people listening to you, so knowing the purpose of your story and what lessons you have learned are fundamental to authentic storytelling. Your story has the power to change people’s lives, so you should consider your intentions in sharing.
