The Power of a Story
Books give a soul to the Universe, Wings to the Mind, Flight to the Imagination and Life to Everything – Plato
The first time I picked up a book and found myself in another world, I was hooked. A world where anything is possible. Books can bring you hope, understanding and joy. they can challenge you and push you out of your comfort zone. Help you to see what was already right in front of you and can put the fire back in your belly and the light back into your life.
Becoming an Author
Since I was a little girl I have dreamed of becoming an author. Of being able to use my words to impact the world in some way. The thought of someone picking up my book and feeling inspired or simply feeling a little bit less alone fills me with joy.
That dream has become my reality and the best thing is I get to do it alongside 10 other brilliantly inspiring ladies who have also chosen to share their story with the world. This has all become possible since I found Her Story Circle.
This amazing Women’s Movement brings women together to share and inspire others through their voice with motivational speaking and their words by being part of a book. By doing this we are not only sharing a personal experience but we are also able to shine a light on issues affecting women, socially, environmentally and economically worldwide.
Do you have a story you want to share with the world but have no idea where to start?
It can be scary to put yourself out there. I remember when I was just about to do my first motivational speech. I wondered about my content, if I had enough, if it was interesting enough and if anyone would want to hear it. The thing is we are all unique and our story is too. Nobody else in the world has your story or your interpretation of it. That makes every story very special in my eyes and worth telling
We all have challenges we have overcome and people need to hear that. There could be one person right now in desperate need of the exact problem you have overcome. They could be feeling like there is no way out and then you come along and give them hope with your words. Perhaps they have picked up your book or been searching in google and come across your speech.
You have an opportunity to impact the world so really who are you NOT to share your story. When the fear creeps up and the doubt sets in try to turn it around and think of it this way and it will help you to see the bigger picture.
Setting the World on Fire
Now I am on this journey I don’t want to stop. I’m dreaming big. The way I see it, if I can achieve a chapter in a book I must have a book in me. If I can speak at a Women’s Global Summit then what is to stop me from becoming a TED talk speaker next!
I am so passionate about Her Story Circle that I am now one of the chairwomen and I am looking for speakers for the 17th and 19th of March to share their story. You can find out more by visiting Her Story or by reaching out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s set this world on fire ladies. Now is your time.
