Why are you afraid to share your stories?

Is it fear of being on camera? Fear of appearing vulnerable? Is it just because we have forgotten HOW to tell stories? Is it just because we’ve forgotten how powerful stories truly are?

Why are you afraid to share your stories?

Is it fear of being on camera? Fear of appearing vulnerable?

Is it just because we have forgotten HOW to tell stories?

Is it just because we’ve forgotten how powerful stories truly are?

When I started on this business journey years and years ago, I was taught strategies and tactics. I was taught to leave the emotion behind and CONVINCE your people to buy from you.

If they say No, well here’s what you say to show them they are wrong.

If they say Maybe, well here’s what you say to make them say yes.

If they say Not right now, well here’s what you say to make them book in now.

It always felt dishonest to me.

It never quite sat right with my heart.  

And I was constantly afraid someone would see through my carefully planned sales script and memorised responses.

You see I’m very much like you.

For me, my intuition is what guides me and my heart is what helps me makes the decisions.

I had numerous business failures, the biggest of which resulted in me laying on the floor of my commercial office feeling numb and completely and utterly done. So done that I left the business world and went back to a J.O.B. And why? Because i ignored my heart and followed my head…. like I was taught to do.

Slowly but surely my love for photography came to the forefront and I slowly stepped back into the business world… and then once again I got trapped in this strategy and tactics game.

All I wanted to do was help people and share their stories and yet here I was… again!

I’d had enough.

I just couldn’t do it anymore.

So I didn’t.


I ditched the bullshit.
I stopped trying to sell and just started speaking from the heart.
I started asking to hear people’s stories.

And here’s the thing… the fear just fell away.

I went to networking meetings and stopped asking trivial questions and asked the deeper ones. I asked people about their passion, about why they did what they did, what matters most to them in their lives.. Why they exist.

 

It made some people very uncomfortable.

It made me realise not everybody spoke on this level.

It made me realise just how many people were afraid of their own stories.

 

And do you know what?

Those who opened up to me, well I started forming true, deep connections with complete strangers, who in a matter of minutes, some of them have become my dearest friends.

 

I started really truly helping people.

And in turn I was helping them help others.

My choice to ditch the trivial conversations…

My choice to ditch the fear was having a huge ripple effect on those around me.

 

I’m asking you to do the same.

 

Drop the bullshit.

Drop the tactics and the sales pitches.

Let’s just speak from the heart.

 

Share your stories with eachother and start speaking from the heart.
