As we set sail towards the next 500 episodes of Be You – Rich Daily Inspiration, at our Book Club, let us celebrate this harbour of inspiration, designed to remind us that we are the architects of our own destiny, captains of our own lives, steering ahead into the Light of your own North Star, with clear intention and confidence.
Sharing your story changes your story and the future of humanity.Dr Marina Nani
We are all authors of our lives but most of us are too busy to put our name on the story. When you pen your experiences on paper, you not only provide a window into your personal world but also invite others to connect and relate, inspiring a new narrative. Through this process, as an author you have to confront your self-doubts, vulnerabilities, your fears, and discover a newfound strength in your own voice.
One of the remarkable people sharing their story at the 15 Min Daily Rich Inspiration at our Book Club is Rosemary Beatriz Montoya. At the age of 18, just as Rosemarie was about to graduate from high school, her life took an unexpected and unimaginable turn. A car accident plunged her into a deep coma from which she recovered days later but the brain injuries left her with the cognitive abilities of an average five-year-old. The harrowing aftermath of her severe traumatic brain injury demanded a painstaking reconstruction of her mind. With love surrounding her, and an unyielding determination to fight to be herself again, Rosemarie began to re-imagine her destiny. This path of endurance, resilience, and determination stretched well beyond a decade.
We proved over and over again that every story you hear or share takes you one step closer to who you destined to be. But Rosemarie’s odyssey is about “fighting to be herself again” and remembering who she is destined to be, when she was left with no other choice. Her autobiography , Fighting to be me again is an accurate account of her emotions, experience, and proof of just how powerful and incredible the human mind really is. Facing excruciating trials, she discovered her extraordinary talent for writing. Her story, which just started, unveils the remarkable power of the human spirit.
Can a single grain of sand hold the key to a an untold story?
A book connects you with eternity. The page where you pen your experiences, thoughts and emotions will start to resonate with others, stirring emotions, evoking compassion, and kindling a sense of shared humanity. Readers may find refuge, inspiration, or a profound connection within the author’s words. In this exchange, which Dr Marina Nani calls it Stardust Exchange, every story creates a ripple effect, connecting the author and their readers. She told us today:
“An untold story is like a grain of sand. There are billions of sand grains in the world, and many of them share similar properties. Composed of minerals like quartz, feldspar, and various other minerals depending on its source, each grain of sand shows slight variations in size, shape, colour, and texture, when goes under microscope. These minerals undergo weathering and erosion processes, resulting in sand grains of similar compositions and shapes, but unique.
These differences can be influenced by many factors such as the parent rock type, the geological processes involved in its formation, the way they get carried by wind or water, and the environment in which the sand resides -beach, desert, riverbed, or any other geographical location.
Certain sands, such as those from unique geological formations or specific locations with distinct mineral compositions, can possess more pronounced differences. The green olivine crystals could only be found in the beaches of Hawaii or the black volcanic sands in certain coastal regions stand out due to their specific origins.
Sand grains may also contain microfossils, tiny fragments of shells or coral, or other organic matter, making them individually distinct to some extent. On a macroscopic scale, the differences between individual grains of sand may not be readily noticeable to the naked eye. It is through the microscopic examination and analysis of sand that we can observe the subtle variations and appreciate the uniqueness of each grain.
If we are to think of the every untold story as a grain of sand, there are billions of people who never put their name on their story. There is an estimate that 117 billion people have ever been born on Earth. Billions who could never change their self- perception or understand the place they hold in the world. None of us will have the chance to see them for who they really were.
You carry within you a collection of experiences, emotions, and unique perspectives that form the essence of your story, same way minerals makes a grain of sand unique. When you share your personal narrative as an author, a remarkable transformation not only around you but within you. But the one story that the world is waiting for, is the story you tell yourself, about yourself, when no one else is listening. We explore the profound impact of storytelling, examining how the act of sharing your story not only changes the narrative itself but also shapes the way authors perceive themselves after their stories are published.
Revealing the Extraordinary in Ordinary
Just as sand grains may seem ordinary at first glance, people may perceive themselves as unremarkable or assume their stories lack significance. However, just as sand holds hidden beauty and unique forms and colours when observed closely, under microscope so too does each person’s story harbour forms of influence waiting to be discovered.
When you start sharing your story, you begin to examine your experiences, introspect your thoughts, and find the courage to change the way you see yourself.
The Power of Self- Perspective: Changing the Way You See Ourselves
Once your story is published and reaches its audience, there is a profound shift in self-perception. The act of sharing your story validates personal experiences and reinforces the belief that every narrative has value and significance. As an author you begin to recognize your uniqueness, as others start to reach out to you with appreciation, understanding, and support.
Through the reflection and introspection inherent in the writing process, authors often gain new insights into their own lives. They may discover resilience, strength, or wisdom they had previously overlooked. By embracing their vulnerabilities and embracing their story, they can find empowerment and a renewed sense of self.
The connection with readers can provide a fresh perspective, offering the author new interpretations and appreciation for their journey. The profound impact their story has on others reinforces their sense of purpose and may inspire them to continue sharing their experiences, growing into a source of inspiration for their readership.
Just as sand reveals its hidden beauty under microscopic examination, storytelling brings a new understanding of your inner narrative and your place in the world. The act of sharing your story connects you to a sense of purpose, while also offering readers an opportunity for empathy and personal growth.
As you embark on the path of sharing your own story, remember that your experiences hold immense value. By embracing your vulnerabilities and bravely sharing your narrative, you have the power to inspire, heal, and transform both yourself and those who have the privilege of engaging with your words.
“Just as yachts and ships come to the harbour before their next voyage, we come to the BE YOU each morning, gathering strength before facing the day.
