Some people are better at telling them. Others are great listeners. No matter what side of the fence you sit on, we all have a great story that we want to share. Not for selfish gains, but just because it made us feel good. The problem is we don’t think our story is compelling enough to share with the world, hence the hesitation to use social media. We have to stop this type of thinking right now!
Effortlessly Turn A Good Story Into A Compelling Story
So, what’s your story? Being told the story from the “horse’s mouth” compels a lot of people to listen. We don’t want to hear it from the next person. We want to hear it from you, the source. Consider this: people genuinely want to fall in love with you, but not because someone else does.
People love to hear stories of victory and triumph. Of hard work that has paid off through perseverance and faith. Of goals and accomplishments that have been reached and even surpassed beyond belief. Your story is very important to others because it is how inspiration spreads. You just have to believe that you possess the type of inspiration others are looking for.
If you have a story to share, social media is the platform you need to share it on. Stop being fearful of what others will say. Stop doubting that your story is as good as this person or that individual.
You. Are. Different.
People who pay attention to social media are looking for that difference. Tell it to us…then show it!
Start Sharing Your Story Using Social Media
To figure out how to show your differences, you should think of yourself. It sounds selfish but it’s not. Ask yourself the following:
- What stories have you been inspired by?
- What was it about those stories that you connected with?
If you don’t know how to answer these questions, now is the time to start finding out. Are you ever interested in stories that you can’t sympathize or connect with on a personal level? Then don’t use social media in a way that you can’t relate to. You want to do what works for you. Do things you are passionate about, instead of focusing on how to make x amount of dollars from others.
Take a minute to think about how you would connect with yourself. If you can figure that out and put it into action, you’ll have a better grasp on what social media is all about and how to succeed in using it.
