Our daily lives leave behind a series of valuable lessons and information which can be very beneficial to future generations. These lessons and information can be managed by being written down in the different ways they occur. That is the reason why it’s critical to tell your story. There are many reasons why everyone should tell their story and the following four factors clearly point out the importance of documenting our life events.
Stories written from our life occurrences are useful for reference. The best thing about having a story to refer to is that it not only helps the story teller but even many people of different walks of life. For example, people who have written biographies and other personal stories have greatly inspired generations to learn from the lessons of each particular story. If someone was a hero in their time and their story is well documented, future generations will refer to the stories of such heroes to gain confidence in executing their heroic activities as they live. They then in turn document their stories and even refer to the earlier stories eventually creating a chain of personal life stories which remain inspiring.
Writing your story will keep the memories of your life events alive. As you grow older and experience new challenges, reading some of your stories will refresh the memories of the lessons learnt so as to avoid repeating them.
Telling your story is the most helpful way to teach great lessons in life. As you document your personal positive and negative stories, a clear picture of valuable lessons is always left behind. For example one of the best tactics of teaching children is through story telling. This is a method that has continued to be used by parents and grandparents to inspire the young generations. Even schools have embraced the art of storytelling through story books, which are read before a series of questions are presented to aid in understanding the lessons behind each story.
The result of telling your story and presenting different lessons to the audience normally presents a challenge of developing new ways of improving. For example, if your story involves certain challenges you underwent during the invention or innovation of certain ideas, then the future generations can pick lessons from your story and improve on the innovations. Telling your story can aide in developing infinite aspects of life occurrences.
Go ahead and tell your story in whatever format that is ideal for you because telling that story will not only be beneficial to you but to a large population in many generations.
