Being Brave Enough:

The Power of Owning & Telling Your Story

 “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. I am especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered to speak up and share their personal stories.” OPRAH

Stories are incredibly powerful.

When you are brave enough to tell your own story it has a powerful impact not only on your life but it creates a ripple effect that inspires and stimulates the community around you igniting positive change and growth.

In today’s world people are craving a different kind of connection that has been lost by the dispersion of our communities, conforming to silence and daily use of digital communication. Humans have an inherent need for connection, to feel like they are not alone in their experiences, to feel safe to use their voice and to be inspired to change a negative state into a positive action that ultimately will allow them to fall in love with themselves again and enable them to fulfil their dreams.

They are looking for you - Your story is one they need to hear.

In this workshop you will learn what tools you need to not only tell stories about your life experiences but demonstrate to your community that you own your story, and are prepared to be vulnerable in order that the truth is heard and acknowledged so others can make informed choices. You will also learn how you can interpret this into a series of communications to engage and inspire your community through varying platforms.

Key Learning:

  • Why people react positively to powerful story telling

  • How to step into owning your story to begin making a powerful impact on your life and business

  • How to craft your powerful story to connect with your community (+ ways to share that story)

If you are a service based business you have most likely had a major life change that was the catalyst to your journey to creating a business that truly serves others in making positive changes in their lives.

This workshop will enable you to confidently share that journey and put aside that ‘who me’ voice in your head and understand what and how to share elements of your story that will benefit your community in their lives.

Owning my story transformed how I wanted to create my business. It made me realise I was simply recreating the same thing I hated about conforming in all the wrong ways to someone else’s idea of what work and business ‘had’ to look like. It had me doing what I thought I was good at instead of what I loved and embodied, it told me I wasn’t good enough and who was I to tell anybody anything? 

Join us in a fun, safe and supportive environment let me help you stop the old stories that are preventing you from achieving your goals and dreams and step out to connect with your community to build trust and engagement by owning and telling your story.

Be Brave Enough.

I had a moment early on in my journey of recovery when it felt like I had awoken from a very long nightmare to the most delicious smell that brought with it a gentle memory of good - My saving grace...fresh tomatoes straight from the vine.

They took me back to my childhood. It was right where I needed to go. It gave me my magic back.

Since that point, I have wanted to share with you a way of delving into 'the good' as part of your everyday.

So, I bring you this delightful Instagram daily photo challenge in a bid to inspire you to 'Remember the Good'.

For every day throughout March, there is a prompt, something to coax your curiosity into exploring, experimenting or experiencing as part of your day to entice memories, cosy up in pure goodness and tantalise your senses. Take a moment to discover where the prompt word will take you and then share a photo (use your phone or a camera) that encapsulates what you discovered.

I will be sharing my good every day too. 

To join in, just save the graphic below it has all the details you need and if you would like to tag me when you share your photo in Instagram @samosbiston and use the #rememberthegood2018 I would love to see your discoveries.

Do what makes you feel good.
