Mercurial Moments – What’s Your Story?
I found that whenever I shared my story others would tell me theirs. It’s as though my story inspires others to recall their fond memories.
Stories are fun, vital and good for business too, so I hope my story reminds you of something that happened in your happy past. I would love to hear your story – via the comments box.
When my parents moved north to Newcastle I was twelve and instinctively I knew I needed to get out there and make new friends. What could I do? make? or be? what would attract people to me and make me likeable?
Being mad keen on electronics and a boys boy, I made a ‘morse code’ machine (even though I could only ‘do’ SOS). Low and behold, the same day, I had people knocking on my door.
From creating something new and putting out a few simple messages I discovered people would come to me. What I learned back then has stayed with me always. I have discovered that every time I tell this story, others tell me of things that happened to them in their formative years, which has always been interesting. I hope that you are inspired by my short story to recall your story.
At the end I run through all the things that I learned – there were about 10 things from this one event. I hope, if you listen in, that it sparks off some fresh perspectives on some or just one of the things that you did when you were younger that helped form who you are today.
Please leave a comment and share with me your formative story that you now see as a stepping stone to who you are today.
