“If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Choke
Telling Stories Impacts Others
We love to read stories and we all have dozens, hundreds even thousands of our own stories.
Laugh 'til it hurts stories, devastatingly difficult to stomach stories, and stories that we know could change people's lives. Yet, many of us rarely want to tell them. We're ashamed, we may not want the spotlight on us and frankly we don't want to get vulnerable. But we must. Best selling author of Daring Greatly, Brené Brown says, "Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change."
So if in order to birth innovation, creativity and change we must get vulnerable, what in the world are we waiting for?! Perhaps we are afraid what people will think. Perhaps we are embarrassed or can't handle the hit to our ego. How about we begin to set all of that negative chatter aside and take action. In fact, I've found with my clients it is the only way to get past it.
If we are going to impact the world for the better, we must tell our stories. In fact, it's the most important story we can tell. Your story has the power to change misconstrued perceptions, ritualistic rules and most of all the world for the better. Erin Giles
