Leave a Legacy: Let’s Turn Your Life Story Into An Inspiring Book

 If you’re among the people thinking, “I want someone to write a book about my life!” Take heart! You’re at the right place! You’ve made the right decision to leave a legacy by sharing your life story and impacting the next generation!

It doesn’t matter what you have achieved in life, the most important thing people will remember about you is what you did while you were on earth. They will remember how you lived, what you did and how your life impacted them.

Why should I write about my life story?

Your life story is an asset. That asset can give hope to the hopeless. It can inspire someone to believe in himself and start the journey to being the best version of himself. Even if it is not important to you, your autobiography can work miracles in the lives of many people.

The problem is that we have a lot of highly successful and accomplished people all over the world, yet we’ve heard little to nothing about them. They live exceptional lives, make an impact and transform many people, but they die and it’s all over.

This needs not to be so! We have to preserve those life stories and share them with families, friends and people all over the world. Your life story may not appear on the New York Best Seller List, but it can motivate, inspire and encourage others to make it in life.

Does my life has to be perfect before I write my book?

Both your success and failure are an asset! People will learn from your failures and gain wisdom to navigate their own life. People will learn from your successes and develop a strategy to achieve their own success. The more people read, and get inspired by your story, the more difference you make in their life.

So, what is the best time to write about your life story?

When you’re right here breathing! While you are here on earth, consider writing your life story to chronicle your success story in life. Your book can bring someone’s dream to reality!

Who should write a book about his/her life story?

You need not be the former President of the United States, Barack Obama to write about your life story. If you’ve achieved a considerable amount of success as a celebrity, businessman, entrepreneur, investor, corporate executive, professional, politician or a pastor, you can write a story about your life.

Is age important in writing a book about your life story?

You need not worry about your age. Focus on the purpose of the book. What is the aim of your life storybook? What goal do you want the book to achieve? This is the most important thing to consider before setting out to turn your life story into a book.

What types of life story books can I write about?

You can write a life storybook about your entire life or an area of your life.

Marital Success Life Story: You can write a book about your marital success. Instead of sharing principles, you state how you got married, what happened and how you have stayed married over the years. People will learn from your marital lessons and know-how to lead their own lives.

Rags to Riches Life Story: You can write a life story about how you came out of poverty. What did you do? Where have you been born? How miserable was your situation? What did you do? What was your turning point? How did you transform your life? How helped you? How can people use your life story to turn their own lives around? You can write a book to share this story.

Entrepreneurial Success Life Story: You can write about how you started, built and grown a successful company. How did you start the company? How did you scale the company? What did you learn in the process? You create and share the vivid scene of how the company got started and what you did to make the company a national/international brand. 

Professional Success Life Story: If you are a successful artist, musician, actor or celebrity, how did you attain that status? Your story can inspire and help a struggling artist out there. How did you discover your talent? How did you get started? Where did you start? What did you do to get to where you are? How can other people also do to maximize their talent and skills?

I want to write a book about my life, where do I start?

It will take a ton of work to get your book published. But you have to start somewhere. The first step is to create a book outline, create the scenes of your life, organize them into chapters, choose a theme for each chapter, jog your memory and check your photos to develop the draft. Consider making audio recordings of each memory of the theme.

I want to write a book about my life, but how do I go about writing?

Writing is a skill. Your story can very sweet and inspiring, but if they do not write well, it will just be boring for the reader. So, first, examine your skill. Do you have the writing and editing skill to create a captivating and inspiring story about your life? If you do, then do you have the time and the commitment to start and finish the project? You can either do it yourself or hire a ghostwriter to write the book.

How do I find a writer to write my life story?

There are a lot of writers all over the world. You can hire them to take your audio recordings and then convert it into a great inspiring book. The problem is, ghostwriting is a special field. You need a pro writer to do the work. You need an experienced writer to write the story about your life.
