No matter what anyone tells you, the life you have lived is more than a story filled with adventures and obstacles, love and lose, family and friends. It is more than jobs you’ve worked or the degrees you’ve earned. It is more than the memories you’ve accrued or the regrets you have. It is more than your successes and your failures. It is your legacy. It is the power of all your experiences coming together via the power of the written word.
A biography or a memoir (which focuses on a part of your life rather than the whole) allows you to share the wisdom of your years. It allows you to share a world view that is completely unique to you and only you.
Picture your biography in printed form, with a cover like no other cover on any other book, with your words presented on every page. Even if your intent is to share this book with members of your family, picture the pride of laying that book in their hands and saying, “It’s who I am. It’s what I think. It’s my emotions. It’s my heart and soul.” There is no other feeling like that.
You and I are individuals among another seven billion individuals across the globe, and no one among those masses shares your story, can walk in your shoes, can create your legacy.
We are mortal human beings, but the written word has the power of immortality. No one can take that away from you. No one can take the power of your legacy from your kids and their kids. You don’t have to be a celebrity to capture your story in a biography or memoir. Your story is as unique as theirs when you take away the window dressing. And the good news is, you don’t need to be a writer to bring your story to life. You only need your memories and the knowledge that you have lived a life worthy of your legacy.
