Seriously, I didn’t want to write more about this Timeline for now, but this idea hit me hard in brain. So here we go.
As I and others have said earlier that Facebook timeline is all about stories and to touch people (your audience) emotionally. Here is what I was thinking today, other than me, who’ll be me most passionate about my story. Answer came in seconds, “my kids.”
Yes I love(d) the time when my father and/or mother tell me beautiful memories of their early life. And I know you do the same. Being human, my and yours kids are going to do the same.
Why stories are taught to us at early age? Simple answer is, this is one of the best things we love to do at that age.
Great people like Nelson Mendela, Gandhi or Martin Luther King. They all shared a common thing, the story. They story of the challenges they faced, of the bold steps they took, of believing in themselves.
Every successful person or business is based on the stories and their fans remember them by investigating and talking more and more about their stories. This is way Apple, Facebook or IKEA has many fans, and those fans are continuously sharing the story of their beginning and all up and downs.
You see not every person or business has a story. This is because only bold steps make a great story a story worth sharing and remembering. Even if someone wants to give a great TED Talk, he shares his story.
Watch this talk by Neil Pasricha, where he shares his story and how he started one of Web’s most respected blogs 1000AwesomeThings.com
Now you got it clearly, right? You can not play your full shot unless you create a story. And as we saw earlier in the video, story means taking bold steps and do something wonderful. Which at first might seem very small.
Have you started working on building your story? You must! Please share your story with us, please. If you feel you haven’t one yet, just share what you’re up to, no matter how little it is, this might be start of another great story. Wish you all the best for your story my dear friend.
