If you ask random people from all walks of life if they have ever considered the idea of writing a book, eight out of ten will say they have. Telling stories has been part of human essence for so long, not only to record important events but also to educate and inspire others. In addition to that, the ones who share the stories create a sense of purpose, of achievement, and community.
It is the emotional factor we add to it as storytellers that makes important messages stick to our minds and to help us better understand what happens in the world. It is safe to say that it has gone far beyond entertainment purposes. Stories create memories and emotional bonds. Along with that, by sharing unique perspectives and experiences of life events, work, relationships, we transfer over the wisdom and expertise that can guide and support others on their journeys.
Writing a book can be seen as something old-fashioned if compared to all modern possibilities of communication through the internet, and yet it is still one of the most persuasive and effective ways to have a message shared with a large group of people while creating highly personalized experiences. With a book in hand, a reader creates time in their day to absorb the content with no distractions, something almost impossible in the noisy and busy lives we live nowadays. Different from the countless quick videos that are uploaded to the social media channels everyday, books dive deeper on a specific topic and make the reader structure their own thoughts about it with the author. The same book will impact each reader in a different and special way. It is never the exact same thing.
If you have an interesting combination of knowledge, expertise in a field, and life experiences that could be helpful for others to learn from, then writing a book should be something on your to do list in 2023. It will help you build a strong connection with people that are organically drawn to the subject you write about: readers that are already interested in learning more about what you have to say.
From the moment you write and publish a book, new doors are open and unexpected opportunities will be presented to you. The feeling of accomplishment of fulfilling a purpose to inspire, educate, and help others see the world from a different perspective is incredibly satisfying. If you can change one life by sharing your story, it will already be worth the journey. Now think about how many lives you could impact with your book?
