Yes, you read that right. I believe we need to get things down in black and white. Getting our thoughts and ideas down on paper or on the screen is a smart thing to do.
In my heart of hearts, I want nothing more than to leave a positive and powerful life story behind, which means I need to continue living a healthy and positive life today. I need to make wise life choices on a daily basis. (Don’t we all!) Most especially, I need to learn from my mistakes in this life journey. Writing down my faux pas, my major failures, and of course, the things I do right and well too, is a part of this process!
The school of hard knocks is a good teacher. Lots of life lessons make great stories. Many people ask me about my writing and my speaking business, and I love to share.
Over the last 30 years of writing out my life stories and attitudes in a Seeds of Success format, based on the lessons I have learned, I have discovered a few things. For instance, here are some things writing does to help me succeed in my speaking business.
Writing actually helps me to prepare for upcoming speaking engagements. It helps me clarify my thoughts and thinking and how looking at things from another perspective is always a good idea!
Writing helps me leave a path or a trail of thoughts to piece together a trail back to my roots and my core belief systems.
Writing is good for gaining the perspectives and view points from others.
All good reasons to write and share–and who knows–maybe even leave a legacy! Get ‘er down!
